Yea, thanks, I searched there and found only the Honda OEM colour codes (eg NH194M Heavy Grey Metallic) which 1) are not Paint codes, they are colour codes and 2) paint shops cannot generate a mixing formula from them, they just dont come up with anything to cross reference to, at best they will tell you its a Honda code but will not generate a formula to mix.
I have run into this issue many times with my projects, so I always take in a body panel to get it optically scanned. Never in all my years of bike projects has a paint shop been able to generate a mixing formula from a Honda bike colour code. Hence my interest in an automotive mixing code/paint name and name and year of vehicle.
Colorite are hit and miss, some of their colours have been quite good, while others are not even close. Not to mention the outrageous prices.
if you know of a different thread with actual mixable codes, please add a link to it.
I will be getting the silver and red scanned in March -- Ill post those to the forum. If I can get a match off the wheels ill post that as well
