Yeah: $37.95...and then they will recommend an additional special finish and finisher spray assembly to replicate the stock flat finish...

I got some paint & clearcoat for my car from them and it was a great match. Just had to be careful not to put too many coats on. Light coats & let it dry as it did darken some. Practiced on some scrap first. The clearcoat also darkened the finish some.

The biggest thing to find is the matte laquer. You can rough it a bit with a scotchbrite pad but with the wrong clear it just won't look right.

A warning from Color Rite

ATTENTION
THE COLOR YOU HAVE PURCHASED IS A "FLAT" OR "MAT" FINISH COLOR. IT DOES NOT REQUIRE A CLEARCOAT FOR IT TO MATCH THE FINISH ON YOUR VEHICLE. HOWEVER, THE PAINT WILL NOT BE AS DURABLE AS A BASECOAT/CLEARCOAT TYPE PAINTJOB.

Flat/Mat finish colors are susceptible to being damaged by gasoline, harsh cleaners, and other chemicals. Extreme caution must be used to avoid damage to your paintjob. We have developed this color to not require a clearcoat due to inconsistencies in flat/eggshell types of clear. It has proven to be difficult to obtain the correct type of finish with these flat/eggshell clearcoats since many flat/mat colors have slight, but varying, degrees of gloss. Under normal conditions, the mat/flat colors we have developed will have sufficient durability to last for years. Riding, washing, polishing your vehicle will not harm the finish. However, gasoline if left on the flat/mat color for any period of time can soften and therefore ruin the finish. Therefore, if painting a fuel tank, we recommend using the PFKT600 eggshell clear kit. This kit, when professionally applied, will enable the finished paintjob to be resistant to fuel and other harsh chemicals. Using the PFKT600 kit is the only way to guarantee that your paintjob will be as durable as the factory finish. However, the PFKT600 kit can slightly alter the appearance of the color. It is extremely important to test the color with the PFKT600 clear before proceeding with your paintjob. This will enable the painter to see how to spray the color/clear and how flat or mat the finish will turn out. ColorRite will not be responsible for slight color variances due to PFKT600 clearcoat application.

I used some color-rite touch up paint on my tank after I had dented it. I wasn't happy with the color matching at all; way off. It almost seemed that the black primer I used as a base was a better match. Way overpriced,too. I ended up switching out the tank.

the "clear coat" is an 'eggshell' matte finish....without it, it's not a perfect match and you can tell when you're doing touchups

I've used this companies paint to repaint the wheels on my car(the last owner must have scraped every curb he saw) and the paint matched 100% and went on perfect. It was $60 for the paint and clear coat rattle cans, totally worth it for the quality.
