Just recently dropped my 2012 FJR after parking on uneven pavement on the side of the highway. Long story short, I quickly racked up about $2000.00 in damages: right side mirror, lower cowling, windshield, side case, top case, brake pedal, and Clearwater Darla light bracket and bezel, all suffered significant rash. So before I start replacing plastic, I ordered the 3stage paint from Colorite (code DPBMU) to see if I can get a decent match. I did three color tests and all are coming out really dark. I have done the following test coats:
1 base coat, 1 top/mid coat, and 2 clear coats
2 base coats, 1 top/mid coat, and 2 clear coats
2 base coats, 2 top/mid coats, and 2 clear coats
The product calls for 2 base coats, 1 top/mid coat, and no more than 3 clear coats.
Has anyone had any luck in matching the factory paint through Colorite?
