Tamco Throwback Garnet Red

Tamco is happy to release a line of colors we believe people have been seeking! We have been asked to put a spin on peoples restorations over time. This led to this creation named TAMCO THROWBACK!
Have you ever wanted a iconic color from the most iconic time in automotive cars? When you think of the best of the best in automotive Americana, you think 1969-1972. So to start we chose 10 of the most memorial iconic colors, and we put the well known Tamco touch on them.

Have you ever wanted Hugger Orange with a twist? We took care of that for you. We took the beautiful shade of orange most known for being on a 1969 Camaro, and added a killer pearl to it. Commonly in the automotive industry this would only be achieved in a tri-stage. Not only did we stay true to Tamco, and make it a true basecoat, that covers in 2-3 coats over white primer, sealer or base coat. We took this idea and applied it to the most iconic solid colors between those years. Lemon Twist (this is a creation between any yellow from this era) Garnet Red, Panther Pink (aka Moulin Rouge) and British Racing Green. Now we didnt forget about the metallics. LeMans Blue, Grabber Green, Plum Crazy and to name a few. We changed the metallic size, gave it a retro custom one off feel. Made it brighter, coarser, and added PEARL! All of these Throwback colors look like what they were created as, they just look incredibly better and richer. So when you see a 1970 Cuda in Tamco Throwback Panther Pink Pearl, you'll think to yourself, WOW, why does this look so good! It looks thats good because some used Tamco, and so should you. If you want the matte black hood accents, or under the hood black, look on our site. We also make the matte black SS to accent your Throwback.


Like all our custom colors these colors look night and day in the sun/shade or garage. They also will flop differently whether based in white, black or grey/silver.

Tamco Throwback will look lighter based over White or grey & darker over black.

This is an Acrylic Urethane Basecoat.
Yes, this is a basecoat paint which needs a high quality clearcoat sprayed over top of it for durability and shine. We recommend HC-4100 or any of the other Tamco Clearcoats on our website.
Yes - our paints work great on calipers, engine blocks, and valve covers!
You have an 8hr recoat window. If its over 8hrs - scuff with a gray scuff pad , spray another coat of base, then continue as normal with the project.
We would recommend you either adding Diamond pearls into the base coat or ideally spray our Diamond pearl midcoats over top. Over top will give you the most effect while also not changing the color as much as mixing it. Also mixing it in you will need quite a bit of pearl to be able to see it.
