paint matching?

has anyone found a spray paint that comes close to matching Honda Red? I just got a tire hugger on ebay and it has a few chips in the paint and if I can find some spray paint that matches close enough I might try to repaint it. I haven't looked at any yet but any suggestions would be appreciated.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

If you want to spend the (big) coin, go to:

a little pricey but thats a good possibilty. the undertail could use a repainting also as it has a couple chips on the edges (bought it used also) and the color is slightly off. thanks

Re: paint matching?

for just the hugger, in my opinion getting something close, and painting the whole part would be the way to go.

Re: paint matching?

Does anyone have any advice on prepping (removing factory stickers, etc) the plastic bodywork for repainting? I want to do a good jon on prepwork for shooting new paint (not aerosol). Any help is appreciated!

peel off the stickers. use goo gone or similar to get rid of any addhesive residue. fill in any deep scratches. Sand it down with maybe some 100 grit first, then follow it with a 300 so it's smooth as a babbies bottom. after that you are ready for primer.

Re: paint matching?

Use a blow torch for the decals. They will shrivel up and fall right off. Your fairings will have a new look too.

Re: paint matching?

When I did my tank I striped it to bare metal with zip strip.

As far as paint match, go to you local paint supply shop. they should be able to color match and put in a spray can for you.

Re: paint matching?

I used a hair dryer for my stickers. 100 grit sounds pretty scary to me i would use 600 wet to start.

you use the dental floss to seperate the stickers from the paint surface.The wax in the dental floss keeps the sticker from resticking.
