Paint/ Color codes

I recently ordered an unpainted rear hugger from Simpson Detour. I went with unpainted because I figured it would be easy to find an aerosol version of the Diablo Red. Turns out, the only thing I can find is from ColorRite.com- it's not aerosol and it's pretty dam expensive. A half quart starts at almost 100$. Seems a bit much to paint a 50$ piece of plastic that's going to spend it's life covered in road grime.

I have searched google and the forums fairly extensively. Can't come up with a darn thing about Triumph paint codes, other than classic models. I even called a certified Triumph dealer and all they were able to do was find the product code for a 20$ touch up pen. No actual color code. I would like the color code for the actual paint color, because a local place will make me an aerosol can which I can use to spray my hugger.

Anyone able to help me out?

ColorRite does have 2012 Triumph Diablo Red (#1043) in a spray can for $33.95

http://www.colorrite.com/product/1043-base-1173.cfm

You will also need a clear to do it right.

AFAIK it is unpainted ABS style plastic. It is coming from the UK from Simpson Detour.

I figured the base coat would just be a primer, no? Would that number, 1043 be a ColorRite specific number or is that the universal paint code?

Shows you how much I know about automotive paint.

Primer is primer and your hugger is advertsed with a "paintable base" already applied so should not be needed. Base coat is your main color, followed by a gloss clear coat.

Thanks so much. That just saved me a bunch of time and money! I was hesitant to order the base coat since I thought it was the primer coat.

Automotive paint is totally different from normal rattle can stuff. As previously stated, you will need to get clear coat to go over the base coat, and the application process is different too. You might want to do some more research before you waste a bunch of time and money.

I know what to expect from my rattle can job. No need to break the bank painting it. It will look fine with several base coats and several clear coats. Obviously not as nice as factory paint, but after all it's a dirt deflector not a work of art.
