    that's because it is not paint the gold is anodizing ..... more so like a acid etched color
    TOO MANY GPX'S
    TOO MANY SRX'S
    A FEW EXCITERS
    A FEW SS440'S
    SOME PHAZERS
    A 2000 VMAX 700 WITH OVER 14,000 MILES AND COUNTING

    JUST TOO MANY SLEDS AND NOT ENOUGH TIME

    So i took a chunk of my belly pan to our local canadian tire and had it scanned. It spit out a few ingredients that were a water based latex paint.....you know.....for houses...lol. so that was a bust. Too thick to spray and all u can thin it out with is water......which will change the color.
    So....come on guys.....gotto be someone out there that has found somthing.....even if its close!!!!

    You are on the right track...just the wrong location. Try a local bodyshop with a scanner or at least a paint dealer like UAP that still has the book with the flip over pages of prepainted squares that you can choose from. But in the end if you want it perfect it should be scanned mixed and sprayed by a painter that can change the tint as he applys the paint if you go with base clear. You are from Canada right so it is hard to find anything but waterborn paint now but not impossible . I recommend filling in you location in your signature than we can send you too the right place.
