HI, looking for a similar paint match for the following Honda colour:the colour is white (NH193P- PEARL WHITE ) anyone know a car colour to the nearest match ?? needing a cheap touch up paint pen from halfords. any help much appreciatted.
don't use halfords paints,they're the worst quality conceivable!try
they've got a good selection.
Also take your time on them,prepare with 240/400,sand between coats with 1500 and allow good drying time (1-2 hrs depending on conditions) between coats.don't forget temperature is critical,take the piece indoor and warm it on a radiator(my missus loves this part) and clean them well as dust and dirt will show.good luck
I have used RS Bike Paints touch up and spray paint on many bikes. They're a mixed bag. I got an exact match from them on these paints:
2002 Honda CBR600 red, non metallic and black frame paint (aerosol)
1998 Kawasaki ZX-6R lime green, non metallic
Others were absolutely nowhere near:
2003 Honda Silverwing, silver metallic
2001 Honda Silverwing, pearl blue metallic
2001 Yamaha Thundercat, red candy metallic
2001 Yamaha Thundercat silver frame paint
1998 Kawasaki ZX-6R frame paint
1999 Kawasaki ZX-7R frame paint
1989 Yamaha RXS100 engine casing paint aerosol
2000 Honda VTR1000 red, non metallic
In my experience you have no chance of getting a metallic or candy paint from them to match the intended bike while some solid non metallic colours may match but don't count on it. I still use them because I haven't found anything better and a non-matching touch up is still better than leaving the scratches
Have to say I've always used RS Paints in the past & found them to be very good
I agree with Reedster2
I tried to use RS paint, I think its a waste of money. Colour does not match. I Asked for refund. They responce to it was that I used too much paint for sample so I need to proove colour is wron by sending a panel from scooter. Customer service is horrible.
Hmmm, sorry to hear that, but again, I know loads of people that have used them, loved them and recommended them. I've always found their customer service and expertise to be top-notch...
I would recommend them too try speaking to Phil Allen, he's very helpful and knowledgeable:
