You'll need the red and the base plus clear if you want to do it right.

Do you want it to match or do you want it "close enough" ?

well most cars and trucks have color codes that u can read to the paint distributor and they mix the paint according to what info they have from car manufacturers. we dont have that luxury with bikes. to match motorcycle colors, we have to bring whatever part we want to match to the distributor and have they do a computer analyzation(sp?) of the color to mix the paint. they charge for the analyzing.

another alternative for u would be to bring ur bike, or part of the bike, to a paint distributor and try to match it up to color charts of existing car colors. its a tedious process, but if u can find one to match, that'll save u some.

also, red is an expensive color.

good luck on the paint, i'm heading to bed now.

luis auto colors. take in a piece of the plastic to match and they can match it really close.


i bought the base, top coat, and clear from them and painted my bike twice with just a quart of each. the tank in this pic is the original color, the rest was sprayed with a gun in my tool shed.
