Where can you get paint to match the candy red, or wine red of the 2007 919?
I have a couple parts at the painters and he just called and said that materials to match this color are going to cost $400!!! He even called a couple Honda dealers and they wanted to sell him OEM parts instead of paint for the parts.
He needs a pint of the base, candy, and clear to shoot a modified rear cowl and 600rr fender for my 919 project.
I told him I'd ask the experts (the WT crew!) and buy the materials for him.
I know a little about this. Years ago I used to dable in automotive painting (not professionally) and I can tell you that 1 pint is enough for the parts you want painted but there will be VERY little left over. Is there an automotive paint supplier in your area? They can mix it at a very reasonable price. $120 a pint is way out of line.
I don't know what he is talking about. I could paint a rear cowl and front fender with around a 1/4 of a pint of basecoat. Is this a three stage paint? If so the material cost is higher due to two different color applications but a pint is a ridiculous amount of paint and $400 dollars is a load of crap.

the paint is really expensive.
especially from color rite. (sorry)
I got an exact color match from my auto body shop, he was doing the same color for someones custom chopper.
I got an exact match and painted a buell front screen and a rear hugger fender.
I am kinda far otherwise I would tell you to send me the pcs he told me it would be 150 -200 per pc to paint (canadian) for a fairing or tail etc. the problem was the paint and the setup not the actual amount of paint or the time.
