Interesting point made re postage to and from the States, I have purchased items from one of the large model aircraft/boat/car stores a couple of years ago and postage wasn't that expensive, having said that they were very light items, and were sent as a present, so no import tax, not sure about importing paint spray cans, would imagine our customs would put some import tax on them.

The other thing that crossed my mind is that some postal company's won't carry aerosol paint cans.

Still now I have the paint details, if I need too I can go to a local paint company and order the paint.

Cheers. :028:

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:

Hi there -  is the grey paint code the same grey as for the 'handlebars' please?  Thanks!
