	Did this subject already come up on the British Car Forum? Sounds familiar. 

	Obviously its a personal choice and only you can decide however you have asked for comments. Red over white is not a factory colour scheme. That includes any red. Plus, Carmine red was never used on 100-Sixes. Is your car still in bare metal? If so I would consider  black with red coves which would go well with you dark red interior and is a factory colour scheme for that model.

		Interesting...I guess my personal preference if/when I repaint my car would be the Reno red with the Old English White Coves.
		Always a tuff personal decision !

			It appears colorado red may have a small amount of orange when compared to the Carmine red which is a bold medium red hue and Reno red is more deep red or maroon.

				Curious the difference of these reds vs Colorado Red which was original on my BN7 (now old English white w/red seats and black carpets and brown dash and door panel interior)

					I am ready to paint my '59 BN4 here in Iowa.   It will be red with english white coves.
					Having trouble deciding between Carmine Red and Reno Red.   Carmine Red is my first choice and it looks good with the old english white accent.
					The Reno red is more maroon and goes well with the original dark red leather seats with white piping.  The interior is in great condition and I wasn't planning on changing the interior, except for the carpet.  I will be buying new carpet either from Moss or Heritage.
					My question is matching the interior and exterior---the carmine red may clash a little with the dark red seats.   Although, I see many Carmine red Healeys with dark red
