K-1 paint match
« on: October 05, 2011, 07:39:51 PM »
I have the "catsup and mustard" version...anyone found a good match for the yellow? Yes, I have paint codes...658 for marakesh red, 267 for what is only referred to as "yellow" ...also called Dakar, but definitely not the same as BMW automobile "dakar"!

Find a painter that uses the PPG paint matching computer.  Problem solved.  Find hidden (unfaded) areas of body work for the paint matching process for the best results.

NAPA stores in Oklahoma are matching and mixing paints now, you can purchase them by the pint or spray can, spray cans have a minimum order of 6 cans. Also it's only their main warehouse stores that perform this, not any of their satellite stores.
