Daytona Yellow vs Signal Yellow

Recommended Posts

My car is at the paint shop, and I decided to go yellow.

Now I need to decide if I choose Daytona or Signal.

I know since its a mk1 it should be Daytona but I don't really care about that, I just need to know which one I like more.

Can somebody post photos of daytona and signal escorts?

My old Daytona Yellow Sport. Not the sharpest pic though...

I still can't decide. It's barely different,  at least I can't see the difference in photos.

what a dilemma 😐

Signal is a bit brighter and more luminous from the ones I’ve seen in real life. Daytona is just Yellow. Might changes on the lighting. Bright and colourful in the sunlight after a polish, but indoors with artificial light, it tends to look pale. 

Another pic of mine in the paint shop

Tough choice. The positive note is that on a Mk1 Escort either yellow always looks good. I think that with Mk2 RS's they slightly toned down the colours in general so they didnt overly contrast with the black window frames, grills, bumpers, handles and sills etc. Mk1s can go slightly brighter with their primary paint colour as they have alot more chrome.

Maybe go to the paint shop buy a can of each paint an old panel with both see what you like best

make sure it’s out in the daylight as fluorescent lights give a different shade 

I’ve just painted a mini and it looks almost candy under the fluorescent light but it’s solid red

Thank you guys. I'll see with the paint shop if I can get samples or something that I can take outside in the sun to help me decide.

I don't want to be rude but, maze yellow is out of the question. :(
