    So I got this crazy idea to paint one garage wall in this red and, if possible, stick some Telsa decals on it
    Anyone knows the paint color Tesla uses in stores/showrooms/service centers?
    Is it the same red across the board?

    This video was posted in the "show me your garage" section of the TMC forum. I believe the exact color code is posted in that thread:

    Person on the video did a great job with letters and logo. I don't think I can make it all that perfect.
    I do have a trim guy who works at the house now. He's pretty good with wood work. So I was also thinking MDF...
    I have to figure out how to get this on the board. I don't have a projector.
    Decals would help greatly

    You can find decals on eBay, custom sizes available. Or you can take a file such as these Tesla Logo [EPS – Motors] Vector EPS Free Download, Logo, Icons, Brand Emblems and have a shop like fastsign do one for you. You can simply upload the file on their site to get a quote.

    For Sherwin-Williams paints, try 2910 (Red Door), or 2911 (Pompeii Red). 2912 (Chanticleer) is the right hue, but too dark.
