    Well Fyrtrks, that is the lightest shade of red I have EVER seen. As I understand it, the NFPA standard now requires contrasting colors for the reflective stripe, so you will probably have a hard time finding a new truck that is red with red stripes. I would suspect there are some red on reds out there with a contrasting color being used to define the stripe.

    The picture does not do the tape justice. it is RED Scotchlite I am not sure of the number I don't have my strping book with me maybe the flash was on and it was the cause of the light red stripe.

    I don't think you understood MetalMedic. He was referring (I believe) to the color of the engine...And I agree, that is the lightest shade of red apparatus I have EVER seen.

    Use white or a very light color for the most effective retro-reflection of light.

    Somebody had pictures of a small white stripe and a large blue one on the same truck. I think that it probably somewhere in the archives of this forum. The night picture proves the reflected intensity difference in the colors. The small white stripe completely out shown the blue stripe.
