Hi Boys and Girls,
I need to have my left side bag painted. I see that the Triumph paint code should be stamped in the bag or the top box. My question is...how would this code be transfered or cross-referenced to auto paint codes?.

My Trophy is Emerald Green. Thanks' for any and all help.

Cheers,

Tom.

F.Y.I. Got the "real" codes from Team Triumph in Janesville Wis.
I'm good to go.

Cheers,
Tom.

The Emerald Green code is HJ and a good body shop can match it by using a paint supplier with a spectrometer. Had it done on mine...bag lids came out great (read the "dropped my Trophy" thread reply, I'm no stranger to picking it up.)


Wish I had longer legs: Jim

Thanks, Jim,

The '' real '' paint code had 8 or so colors and tints, all in german. Triumph paints bikes in Clear coat-Base coat, which is VERY expensive. Oh well, lesson learned. I had the bag color-matched and it'll be fine.

Single stage works, as long as you have a painter that knows what's up.

Cheers,
Tom.
