Any body out there know the paint code for the color Illusion Blue on a 2002 Vtx1800C?

Also,
I have to repaint the rear fender,is there a color pretty close or exact match to the stock coor Illusion Blue instead of Honda's Brand?
Thanks for the information

According to Color Rite's site, the Base Coat and Top Coat each is $115 a pint, and $180 a quart.. That's just the paint. Then you're going to need reducer, primer, clear coat, etc....

You might be able to get by with just a pint for the whole bike....

Per Color Rite's site...

For Primer, Clear, Reducer, Base Coat, Top Coat, (PINTS) = $330
For Printer, Clear, Reducer, Base Coat, Top Coat, (QUART) = $500

I think I might have seen something about PPG being able to match it for less.

i have an 03 with the same color, anyone know if it is the same?
i was talking to a paint shop and he told me that most of motorcycle's paint is a "3 stage"
is this color a 2 stage or 3 stage paint? i hope p44p mean a 4 stage paint job,cause he told me 2 cost more than 3 and if is 4 i will need to bring lube to bend over for this one :lol:

Color-wrong sucks and costs way too much. Do yourself a favor and get the paint from Extreme. A pint reduced (depending on the brand) will yield around 2 pints sprayable. Most basecoats are 1:1, so that makes 2 pints sprayable.

They are often referred to as "tri-coats" which is a basecoat, a midcoat, and a clear coat. IMHO, that's misleading, because a clear coat is clear, it's not a color coat and shouldn't count. Sometimes (but not often) you can make a simple basecoat that looks like the "tri" coat you're trying to match.

Hope that helps.

if you get it from Color-wrong (I call them that because the 3 times I've tried to use them the color was not even close) it'll be a base and a mid coat. if you get it from Extreme it'll be a simple 1 part basecoat, as I understand it.
