Here are a few more pics:









I don't think the results will be as good as I was expecting. I've got to wait for some sunlight, but it appears that the finish came out yellower than the factory finish on my bike.

I may have needed to spray a few more coats, or have started with a different color primer.

Yeah, the color is waaay off. It doesn't even look like the color in the can or the chip I compared it to. I'm thinking that gray primer wasn't the way to go.

Color Rite's tri-coat uses a white base, and that may be what I needed to do.

For whatever reason, it looks better in pictures, here is a better representation, the final product looks like the can on the right, where as the rest of the bike is the center or left can.

Yup, correct base coat is everything when it come to getting a good match to the factory color. That said, even professional auto body painters can have difficulty getting a perfect match to factory finishes, particularly with some colors. This is why Honda paints all of it's replacement painted body parts at the same time they paint the body parts used for bike production, so that the new part is as close to matching the original painted parts as possible. Which then explains why when Honda sells out of a particular replacement body part, they become NLA on the parts listings... when they're gone, Honda doesn't make any more.

Looks like the primer color is the culprit. I used a decal backer, and brushed on some of the paint from the can, well, the results speak for themselves.

Dark primer= dark color, light primer= lighter color. Use the same idea when painting model kit parts, thought everyone knew that. Then again I'm ignorant and using 'lumps' of people. Sorry about that, I'll work on it. But try a black primer and you should get pretty close to the original color you're looking for. Hope that helps and good luck!
