View Full Version : Paint Match

04-19-2009, 12:21 PM
Does anyone know the "paint code" for the bike. I want to color match the original paint on my race plastics. I checked Color Rite but they don't do Aprilia. Any help would be appreciated.

Hey T,

I double dog dare you to paint that thing hot pink.

I already owned a hot pink Katana... Time to move on!

O.K, Chartreuse then.

I searched all the forums a while back...when I was painting my tail section. 'Couldn't find a code #.

I stopped at the Auto Paint store today and took my Tank in for a color match on the color matching machine. I figured I'd post the recipe up. They are a Dupont dealer. So I got the Croma system ($140/quart) mix and the cheaper Nason system($40/quart) mixes. I'm sure it will help someone in the future.
