2005 Connie Paint Match
« on: July 15, 2008, 03:04:00 pm »
I read somewhere (I wish I could remember where - I should have printed it out) that the Pearl Beige paint on my 2005 Connie C10 can be closely matched by a color available at hardware stores for little money. Does anyone happen to know what that color is?

I just found out that it's called Light Chestnut Metallic by DupliColor, in case anyone else wants to know.

Dave,  Light Chestnut Metallic is the one. I found  it out when I had to do some repair work on my fairing. It's not exact but it's way cheaper than the Colorite paint. And my experience with their touch-up was not that good....as in not even close. I think you'll be happy with the DupliColor. It works best using a clear coat over it as the paint has a slightly dull finish.    Eddie    AMA# 686667 COG# 7073 CDA# 0136
