    Paint for the Trophy

    OK,

    Does anyone know of a car paint silver colour that matches the Trophy Lunar Silver, I've used RS Paints but I only need a small amount of paint to finish a job on a pannier cover, but don't really want to go to the expense of buying more paint from RS.

    Thanks.   :084:  :821:

    Touchupdirect.com - you can select Lunar Silver specific to your bike.  Comes in touch up pen, jar, spray and several different size cans.

    I bought some blue a few years ago.

    Hi,  Grubloon, I took my  2014 `TT’   back in mid 2018 to a specialist Paint Shop  (LKQ Coatings ) and had both the Lunar Silver and Grey  ( for the infills ) mixed which were perfect.    The Guy  ( a keen Biker ) used an electronic device to obtain the match, positioning  the device on several areas of the Bike, in both the sun and shade , to ensure the match.
    Used were `water based’ (WB-E) colors.    The ref codes displayed on the cans are;

    For the Lunar Silver,  base coat,  FORD-3PLC-3PLCWWA-14 TN27418  (FRD9719 )

    For the Grey, base coat, Chevrolet, 04U-GMAGQW-GQW MBIKE1518  (CHE04U-12 )

    Both cans were size 218ml at £15 each and well worth it.    There is a more detailed label on the cans breaking down the component colors used, which I can photograph and send to you if you need these particular details.

    The guy advised to flat the area to be painted then plastic prime spray, -later Base Colors, leave 24 hours, then finish /protect with a water based acrylic lacquer.

    I have since traded in the Trophy , the cans  are just sitting on my garage shelf ,  they should still be OK to use, the paint for the TT should be the same `shadeing’ ?.   if they are of use to you or any other forum member , you can have them free of charge, just would need to sort out the postage as they are probably still over half full and obviously have weight. 
    Alternativly   take your bike to a Paint Specalist and get the paint color matched to your Bike  :028:
    Regards.

    Stelyn,

    Thanks for your swift reply, the paint codes are just what I needed for future reference.
    I am in South Manchester, and would happily take the cans off your hands, as it's only a small area that needs a touch more paint on one of my panniers side covers, one can didn't quite do it as there were some deep scratches filled and undercoated.

    Will happily cover the postage, if you have a PayPal account, I can transfer cash that way, of it you prefer a cheque is no problem, or bank transfer, let me know your preference, just pm me, and it can be sorted, thanks.

    Brenchley,

    Thanks for the paint info, think the postage from the States to the UK, might me a touch expensive.

    Cheers.    :821:

    That's great that you found something closer to home Grubloon.

    I'm curious though, is it that expensive to ship things from the US to the UK?  I've ordered a couple of things from UK companies - Trident slip-on and a Cool Cover seat cover - and was pleasantly surprised at the shipping cost and delivery time, both 10-14 days.  Australia, likewise.  As mentioned, mostly just curious - do you get hit with an import fee or tax?

    Hi Grubloon, I'm off to France tomorrow for a couple of weeks, if you can wait till I return, I'll get the
        items boxed up and and weighed ect and then `pm' you.   That will give you time to prepare the
        affected area, as thats the `key' to a perfect finish.     It may be you could get them collected by
        Hermes Couriers or similar , who I believe are charging a fraction of the cost to that of the Post Office.   
        They are  large cans and probably between half and 3/4 full, i would guess more than enough for the
        pannier.
        Regards,
        Steve       :821:

     Stelyn,

    No rush, are you on the bike or by car in France, which ever way enjoy your trip.

    Not sure if the post office will carry spray cans, will have a look and see.

    Speak to you in a couple of weeks. :821:
