Go to Color Rite's website, they are the official paint manufacturers for Ducati paint. Sounds like your thinking of repairing and painting the fairing yourself?

Color rite is a rip off, just go to an automotive paint supply store and bring them a colored piece, they have a scanner called the profit and they can read and match it to a T, I've hat it done that way a number of time and was always dead on. Cheers! and sorry for the downer.

there is nothing wrong with Color-Rite paint, it matches up nicely. price/value is a subjective comment, but many here seem happy with that company (me included).

I have no problem with the color matching, I have a problem with the price they stab you with, you can get the same exact match at the paint supply store for at least 1/3rd!, but I guess if money is no object, Color Rite is where you want to go to.

I've used color-rite, the match was perfect. BUT, it was $128.00 a PINT. And than you have to clear it.

Guys, the PPG paint codes are in the owners manual. Dont pay out the arse for paint, its not cheap anyway!!! Go to an auto parts store, its not a brand issue, its a paint color issue. Any paint brand will work.

Glad to see your all right! Today, any reputable body/paint shop can match the color if you have the paint code. If not, a scanner (like the profit) should do the trick!

BASF

R-M Products

Paint Code I got for the mix from the store was SR105.50

Used a Napa Cross Fire Medium Hardner

you can find info on R-M here at www.basfrefinish.com

Here is a photo of the rear panels I did on my old Hyper to show how well the paint color matched. The sun made the red look a little less brilliant but you can see how well it matched anyway.

ColorRite Is a ripoff thats why.... They also falsely advertise their realationship to the manufacturers & The paint only matches 50% of the time..... can mix the Rossa Red but it is expensive when you buy bu the pint $88 or $160 a quart,,,, I use Dupont Chroma Base & the formula is straight from Italy.....

All we can do is lead the horse to the water, as far as drinking, is up to him!

Another recommendation is House of Color's "Blue Blood." I'd recommend a white primer first and it will be spot on color wise.

I've done this before and this is the route to take. It's cheaper, you get to support a local business and if there is anything wrong with the paint you have someone to go to. They can give you the paint in a variety of ways, touch up pens, spray bombs, mixed for a air brush, etc etc.

The last one I did was a Lotus Elise in Chrome Orange which was a 3 stage paint of base, metallic flake and clear. The match was perfect.

I went to an automotive paint store. They did the scan and then I looked through several books and settled on a Ferrari red. It looked dead on.
