you wont match it with powder...guaranteed. Powder is too dull and will require a 2nd coat of clear. Just order teh color rite paint in spray cans if you want to refinish stuff to match.

I don't wanna use paint. It wears off.
I'd be happy if it was close. My aftermarket undertail is a touch off of matching, but it still looks ok. Close is good enough.

Thats the nice thing about the spray cans. Lil nick or spot... pssshhttt. All done. ;)

Paint can be touched up... powder cannot.

IMO, stick with flat black for powder coating foot parts, works well with the frame finish and won't clash with whatever your fairing color is. Even if you are "close" to your fairing color it will still be noticeably off (ie look cheap).

But in the end, your bike, your choice:YEA

I was gonna go black (lol) as plan "B".
I really don't want it all black, but if it's gonna look that bad in blue....
Also, I wasn't gonna do it all in blue, jmejiaa.
I still have to go pick up a shitty oven to use, so I have time to figure it out. There has to be a color that goes good with the blue/black bike. Even if it's not blue PC.

Gold!


Its a multi stage process though. Needs a base coat then a clear to bring out the depth.
