    I just went through that painting my trailer. I called Can Am and asked them for the paint code. They emailed me the PPG code. Go to an automotive paint store that sells PPG. They can mix it for you. My color is only available in water base. It's basecoat/clearcoat, but the clearcoat in not water based. Its the regular clearcoat. Good luck with the project.

    just like tinic mentioned , if you want it correct go too the P P G paint store , it will be exact ! but the local auto zone or other paint store , it might be close but you will notice ... good luck in the project ... you said trainer ? ( a spyder that will not move trainer ? )

    The color of my painted dashboard was from Auto Zone. It is an exact color match.

    Same for me, except I bought mine at Lordco, and I agree with Deanna on the color match.

    some sweet little bird gave me the idea, but I have no idea where the birdie flew off to, but it was certainly a good idea. I love the way it looks.
