It's not worth trying to match. I had that color on my bike before I wrecked it and no body shop in town would even attempt to color match it. The painting process requires perfection and if any mistake is made during the flat clear coat to bad start over as you can't wet sand any imperfections.
get the paint from colorrite. i painted the black pieces just below the seat. came out really well. it will be a bit pricey though as you should get their primer, paint, and eggshell clear coat. their product is good quality ,so i feel it was worth it.....
if you get some paint from color right, you can go to a good paint shop and they can match it. I paint cars at a local shop....i had my paint rep come in with the paint companys "camera" (it takes a pic of the paint and makes a formula to mix it) but there is not full coverage on the bikes to take a pic and make a formula. But if you have some paint say from color rite you can do a spray out and make sure there is coverage then a forumula from a colorcmera would work
You use that big of a paint panel? I have no experience with matching vehile paint, but I match house paints and one machine needs a sample about 1/4 dia. and the other needs about 3/4 dia. I just thought it would be similar. How big is the paint matcher?
well i think a smaller panel would be fine, but with the camera we use you have to take 3 pics to insure quality, so a larger panel alows you to move the camera for the 2nd and 3rd pic incase one of them is no good.
