    Neo Geo Cab Colors (from this decade)

    Hello all, I'm trying to match the original "red" paint color on my tall boy cabinet but I no longer have any samples to scan. Has anyone tried to match the color (say from Sherwin Williams) lately that could share paint codes?

    A basic matte finish red should be fine.

    I was thinking a more pastel pink might be a better look overall. They really did make a mistake with the color originally anyway.

    I have a Home Depot paint match can somewhere in my garage. I will try and find it sometime today. Used it on my own Tall Boy. Can has the color code on top.

    Dude....paint it matte red and call it a day. I highly doubt you will get called out for having the wrong shade of red.

    Because none of it answers the original question. I didn't need to post a question to just paint it any color.

    Neo Geo Cab Colors (from this decade)

    Home Depot Behr “grenadine” red, in eggshell. I feel eggshell matches the texture of vinyl better.

    How would anyone know? Red paint fades fast, nobody has seen the correct shade in 20 years.

    It is in the Dutch Boy catalog as Big Tymer Red.
    Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.

    Looks great, was that sprayed or rolled on? Did you strip and prime the cabinet?

    Yeah, this was a total strip down, bondo, prime and paint job. I actually cut off the bottom 3-4 inches of the base and replaced the wood because of water damage. I can share some pics if you’re interested.

    Appreciate the info. Sherwin Williams is trying to match the Grenadine in an oil-based which (apparently) takes vinyl stickers better than a water-based. Going down first will be a pink primer so that I only need a few coats of the Grenadine.

    I'll be using mohair rollers to get a better end finish. Will post results in a few weeks.

    Here's the before. Complete strip down. filling with wood filler bondo, and sanding to a super smooth surface.

    Here we go. Found my can.

    BTW an oil based paint will produce a much more glossy finish. Yes eggshell is a bit harder to apply stickers to but it can be done if you take your time.

    Thanks Nexus, I chose Satin which will have a little sheen but I'm not going full glass. If it doesn't work out, I may go full graphic overlay.

    Agree, vinyl is hard to apply but does work if you’re patient
