Paint Colours

Post by SP_BOTT » Thu Aug 15, 2013 11:26 am

Hi, same old recurring question, just wondered if the white and lime green colours are the same throughout the model range? and has anyone found a suitable match for any of them so far? ie can i just go into a paint shop and ask for 'Allegro white' :)

I would assume Kawasaki lime green is a copywrited 'standard' colour?

Just started the prep

broken off sections, fairing/bellypan lugs missing and multiple huge cracks repaired.

When I last looked into this Kawasaki told me that they had 13 different shades of Green up until the late 1990's (when they lost all the paint codes)...and so couldn't help.

Kawasaki themselves then referred me to RSbikePaint see:

http://www.rsbikepaint.com/en-gb/colours.php

I'm sure someone on here will know more than me on this.. and I'm also sure other companies will have the paint codes and not just RSbikePaint. That said I got my paint from them at the time and it was good (if a little expensive). :?
