Engine paint touch up.

Hi Guys,
Does anyone know of a good color and gloss level match to the VTR engine paint. I have a couple of spots I would like to touch up. Thnx in advance!

The engine block or the engine covers? I remember someone posting about the engine block color last year or somewhere around then. I'll try searching for it...

EDIT: Nuts. Perhaps I saw that information on another site, because I can't find it.

There you go!

Knew I had seen it somewhere.

The paint on my casings was knackered when I got my bike so I polished them as I hated the hideous golden brown colour.

That meant that I had to paint the swing arm and fork lowers black to try and tie the whole bike together.

I think it worked.

Good luck with finding the codes, I'm certain someone will be along shortly with the correct info.

The painted suspension really ties the bike together. Does it not?

Actually, bolts and nuts "tie" the bike together...

To everyone, thank you very much for the interest and replies! Yes it is the engine castings, the clutch slave leaked ran down the push pod then kind of wandered about eating holes in the finish here and there.

Not much luck googling the Firestorm forum info on that paint code on the internet. Going to the local Auto parts guys to see what I can find. If have any success I'll share it here!

Are you planning on painting the components using a paint gun or are you wanting to rattle can it?
