I have a replacement wheel off an ST4s (grey), that I want to get powder coated to match the current color scheme on my ''99 ST2, which is the dull gold color frame and wheels.

The one shop I found that seems reasonable said they need the paint code in order to do the job.

Best I could find was from threads in this forum: F99835

Will the shop be able to match with just this code? Does anyone have any FHE with this code or matching the gold?

It doesn't have to be perfect, as the wheels will no doubt be covered in road grime and brake dust most of the time.

Thank you.

Figured I'd send an email to DNA, thinking they might be helpful. Not so much. Here's the reply:

My painter (Sean at CCR in Connecticut) was adamant that Ducati uses several different shades of paint for any one paint number, and that the only way to get a real match is to take a reading off the item you wish to match. He does this in the lab where the paint is mixed, but the technology is probably portable. He wouldn't paint one side of my Senna ST4s without having both the nose and other side fairings to check, and they came up slightly different in their batches, so he split the difference and did a bang-up job. You might want to see if you can find some painter in the area with this kind of service so you wouldn't need the Ducati numbers. Just a thought.

kain2882 - can't say that I do, since I didn't need Sean to paint my tank. He did a bang-up job on the lower fairings, where I had some scratches that bugged me every time I looked at them.

But give him a call or an email (calling is better generally) — here's his website.

Be sure to tell him year, model and color. Sean explained that some colors are relatively modest in price, whereas others - well, we'll just say that you may have to choose between your mortgage that month and the paint.
