As the repairs proceed after being rear-ended it turns out that the rear clip, deck lid and bumper facia will be replace. The front bumper facia also will be replaced. The shop will paint all of these parts. That is close to half the surface area of the car.

The Fiero started life in the Medium Red (burgandy) color. My long term plans were to paint it yellow so this is the logical time to do that.

I have collected some photos of yellow Fieros and I like primary yellow the best so far. Please help me pick just the right yellow and post or point me to any photos of yellow Fieros.

Any thoughts on yellow color codes that you like are most helpful and welcomed.

Your help is most appreciated.

I opted for PPG Ferrari 'Giallo Modena' yellow, PPG #4305.

I've seen a few that were Corvette yellow, and while eye-catching, were slightly too harsh to my eye (sorry, Phil!). The Giallo Modena is a bright yellow without the harshness, but it's more yellow than the OEM stock Fiero 'banana yellow' color that looked faded even when new (IMHO).

The Giallo Modena is also proven to look good on cars that have similar body lines to ours, so it's got that going for it, too...

I have been trying to get around to painting my 85 GT a yellow color but have been too busy. My opinion here but I can't stand medium/darker yellows. ( like what you see School buses painted) I prefer a much lighter yellow. I guess you could call it "daffodil", " pastel" or maybe "chiffon" yellow. Or, as my wife & friend call it, "gay yellow". Anyhow, I have a pic of the actual color and shade but need someone to post for me. It is a newer VW Beetle color. Thanks, Kit

Yeah, in my book, if a yellow has ANY orange in it whatsoever (like School Bus Yellow, etc.) it's right out, don't care WHAT kind of car it's going on. Yuck! (Just my humble opinion.)

1998 Viper Yellow, it's one of the brightest yellows out there, especially on a bright sunny day. Extra clear coat gives it a very wet look:

Corvette millennium yellow.

Probably one of the best yellows I've seen. It's deep enough that it doesn't look faded like most yellows, but it's still bright enough that it's eye catching.

If you want something different and call attention the right way then consider the 2002 Lexus Solar Yellow. You can see good pictures of an example car here: http://gtcarlot.com/colors/car/21570378-18.html Not egg/school bus tone like most GMs and not too light like the stock Fiero yellow. I used it on my 2nd Fiero which I sold. Sorry, can't post pictures.

Thank you!

It's a specific type of convertible conversion kit made by a company called Automoda - roughly three dozen or so were made back in the early 90's, and I was able to purchase a previously-uninstalled kit and have V8Archie, Rob and Kris install it on my Formula about 10 years ago.

DONT EVER pick a color from a photo or a car online. Look for a real car the color you like and get the code for it. If you notice Cal Kids car looks like 3 completely different yellows in his group pics. My personal favorite yellow is a subtle one used on 55-56 Chevy called Harvest Gold...(yes it is really a yellow, I call it a Canary Yellow).

Again this is a photo, but you get the idea. This is the Harvest Gold on my Dodge.

Most of us don't follow Professional guidelines when taking pictures of Yellow Cars, which are know to be very difficult. In really bright sun light mine is almost impossible to get a good shot of. Roger is correct that it's much better to see the car in person before making a decision. Below is an explanation from a Professional Photographer on why Yellow Cars are hard to photograph:

Photographing a yellow-painted car, especially bright yellow,
requires you to change your strategy a bit. By the numbers:

YELLOW CAR ADVISORY #1: You cannot (repeat: CANNOT) shoot your yellow car out in midday sunlight. All you're likely to get is bleached-out top surfaces and murky/ orangish lower areas... gen'rlly makin' a mess of your gorgeous yellow paint job. If you insist upon shooting your yellow car out in the sun, you MUST time your photo session for either dawn or dusk... with the (low, unobstructed) sun at your back, and with your car properly rotated so that the sun's rays are illuminating all of your car facing your camera (in a 3/4 view pose, that means the sun MUST BE illuminating both the side AND the front of your car).

YELLOW CAR ADVISORY #2: Here's a piece of concrete advice: park your car on white concrete, so that you'll benefit from the upward-reflected sunlight and skylight; this strategy often works splendidly with yellow cars.

YELLOW CAR ADVISORY #3: Shoot your yellow car in the shade: although you can photograph your yellow car in direct dawn or dusk sunlight (i.e., near-horizontal sunrays) and get good results, your best game plan may be to take all of your photos (listen carefully!): at mid-morning or mid-afternoon, entirely within the "clean" shade of a building or other solid obstruction (not, repeat NOT in the uneven/splotchy shade of a tree, and NOT in your garage), on clean pavement, and use your flash on every single shot of 1) your entire car, 2) your engine, and 3) your cockpit.

But don't take my word for it: here's a hotlink to side-by-side comparative shots of Shaun Goodwin's yellow roadster... one shot in the bright midday sun and no flash, the other in 'clean' shade, with flash. Look at 'em and judge for yourself which is the loser, which is the winner. And incidentally, Shaun's ad for his Shell Valley Cobra didn't elicit much interest with that first photo; when he replaced his photo on CobraCountry with that gorgeous image on the right, he sold his Cobra. That's what good photography will do for you.

Now once more: for your YELLOW car: schedule your shoot for mid-morning or mid-afternoon, move your car entirely into clean shade of a building... or a mountain... Ayers Rock, Rockefeller Center or The Great Pyramid of Giza... and on clean pavement, preferably white concrete. And use your flash on every single shot.

Am I clear on each of those points?

If you follow those three simple guidelines, you're almost certain
to capture superb, richly-colored images of your yellow car!

Note that my advisory on yellow cars really applies to any pastel
or light-colored car. It just happens that yellow is often the most
problematic if you don't have these tips to guide you.

All of these photos show the type of yellow that I am looking for (except the pastel ones), primary yellow, no orange and no hints of green. I certainly agree though that it is not possible to accurately show a color on a computer monitor.

Thank you all for the photos. But don't stop now!! More photos always a treat.

Agreed completely with Roger - one reason I was able to be so positive that I wanted Giallo Modena was because I'd seen yellow Ferraris in person a number of times, and the lines and angles of the cars were similar. I just knew it was the right one for me, but I wouldn't have based a multi-thousand-dollar decision solely on pics. Heck, my car looks a different color in each one of the pics I posted too, and there's also an infinite number of possibilities for the color settings on your monitor.

I'm with Craig - post more pics, people!

I visited the body shop yesterday and told the owner that, based on some recommendations from the PFF, I was considering Corvette Millennium Yellow. His face lit up and he said that is his favorite color. He has a corvette in that color and he said it would be an honor to paint my Fiero that color!

He also said he would paint a sample for me to see the actual color.

A friend painted his GT the Yellow that was introduced on the New Bug when it came out a few years ago. Here it is at The Fiero Factory being dropped off to get a new heart.

Some of the pictures above are pretty good, thought some of them the colors are so far off, that in one the ground looked purple! This will not help you in choosing a color. Honestly, even the best photo someone could take and post really is not that great to go on.

The best think you can do, is hit a couple car dealerships, and even parking lots at the mall. Drive around and find that exact yellow that you are looking for. All you need to do si snap a picture of the VIN# and any paint shop can match the color with just that information. No color code needed. (as long as it is the original paint of course )


A photo, and even worse, small paint chips they show you at the paint shop are not a good representation of what the actual car will look like when painted.

Here is a really good example of what I mean. have a look at all of these cars, all painted the same color, and yet most are night and day differences. Some look orange, some bright yellow, and others pastel.

Good luck! And DO NOT TAKE THE CAR TO MAACO! ! ! !

I usually don't like yellow color, but today I saw a sweet Jeep Wrangler Sahara with yellow paint. Wow, it was beautiful.

The repairs and painting are finally completed. I posted this photo elsewhere in the forum but I wanted to close the loop on this thread.

The painter called it "Corvette Yellow #56", but he orders it specially mixed with no black added.

Very nice! It is about the most true yellow, judging from the picture, that I can say that I have seen.
