Matching Honda 919 engine case paint

Hello All!

Was curious to know if anyone has ever matched the engine casing paint on the honda 919? ( 2007)
I've seen a post regarding the lighter grey but not the dark grey.
It would be really helpful to know a model of automotive paint that matches so I can touch up one of the cases. (original owner dropped the bike over in his garage - something I've been meaning to touch up since I bought it).

Any help would be much appreciated!

Cheers!

Hey thanks

Unfortunately the thread is regarding older versions of the 919 that had the lighter paint color on the engine covers.. I did find someone else asking specifically about the later models, so I messaged him directly... maybe he has some info..
Anyway, Thanks for sending the link. CheerS

I've used universal Rustoleum metallic dark steel months ago, looks identical to me:

No problem, I know it was frustrating when I was looking for the exact match. Now I don't even know where the imperfection is on my cover; I hope yours turns out well also.

I found that Testors has a Gun Metal Grey that is pretty darn close. I think if I had added a little Dark Grey to the Gun Metal Grey it would be almost a perfect match but the damage on mine was light and down low so it does not really show.

I found this stuff at Autozone. It is spot on for the 2007 engine case black. Make sure you get the BLACK METALLIC since they also sell a gloss black.

Hope this helps guys! I'll upload a pic here in a minute!

Good find! I'm never sure what to use to make engines look like ther are supposed to... So I've just always used high temp satin black. It gets the job done, but never looks original.
