There should be a sticker in the underside of the fuel door with the codes. If not there sometimes there is a sticker on the frame under the seat.

I'm trying to determine for certain what my paint code is for my 1993 GL1500SE. In this list, and on all touch up paint sites, it shows as Pearl Glacier White, NH326M. However, when I lift the gas lid, it shows a color code of NH326P, which I believe is the pearl white for the 1997 model. Any other 93 SE Glacier White owners out there seeing the same thing?

Did you get a definitive yes/know for the silver code, I have the same problem as the list on here only goes to 2006. My sticker is under fuel flap but only has the blue on it

Digividsmith, ,
The documentation I have says that the '93 SE called "Pearl Glacier White" lists a code of NH326M. I went through the entire list and find that the '97 Aspencade "Pearl Glacier White" has the code of NH326P.
The "equivalent" ColorRite paint is listed as 2660 for NH326M, but I am not finding an "equivalent" paint code for NH326P.

Try a small tube of "touch-up" paint from ColorRite #2660 to see if it is a match, , , my best guess is that it'll be a close match, or maybe exact match.

Top piece is NH326M painted as directed by colorrite (with appropriate base), bottom is original. You're correct - Colorrite doesn't have a code for the NH326P.

i have an 83 Aspencade that i have been working on. have been having trouble finding any info on it's color codes. it is a 2 tone Blue. i took it to a local auto paint supplier & they had a tool that could match it. the cost for a 1/2 pint of each was prohibitive, but the gentleman at the counter gave me the code info. i was able to find a modern day equivalent that he said these matched dead on to. i was able to get 2 aerosol spray cans online from automotive touchup for about 10% of what the paint store would cost. i have some spots where the prior owner must have gotten brake fluid on the paint, so i want to make presentable. i'm not a pro at painting, but this should look a lot better than it does. it's on order and i will update if it doesn't match so, if anyone is needing this info, here is what they came up with. the lighter blue matches 2018 BMW Marina Bay Blue metallic & the Darker Blue matches a 2016 Kia Optima Horizon Blue metallic.


just in case this might save someone the running around. peace!

Digividsmith, ,

Were you satisfied with the results of that paint project to match your beast? There is a Pearl Glacier white "PARTS" bike that might be a better match than what you ended up with.

If interested, check it out;

Have 1984 Aspy GL1200A with color code Premium Biege but can't find the secondary color on the bike. Should it be on the bike somewhere, because not on false tank lid label?

That list Is AWESOME if that is all there is.

so I gather then the earliest Candy Spectra Red R-176C Bike was in 1992, and the Last was 2000 - So if I happened to find Honda factory 3 stage paint that has been stored right Then the oldest it could be is 1992. I still might be ok? I doubt it's 1992 But still, that's the oldest.

Color Rite makes the 3 stage paint for most of the Honda colors. Of course that is with modern low VOC paints, but I would take that over paint that has been on the shelf for decades.

Well, I guess if its bad I will send it back. I just bought 3 kits of 44Oz each
I don't know why Honda would make such large "Touch Up " kits. Must have been for a Shop or something. I will test it on something other than my bike 1st.
I was looking at replacement pieces and they are REALLY high dollar and still have damage on most - If this paint is good to g I can repair these parts and shoot them with an air brush after they are all lined out.
If not these guys are getting their faulty paint back LOL seems like enough to do the whole bike if I wanted to or match a trailer to the bike.

I see the tint info states 82 Goldwing. How close are those colors to the OEM Limited colors, without a complete re-paint?

I see the tint info states 82 Goldwing. How close are those colors to the OEM Limited colors, without a complete re-paint?
Can't tell any difference. If you do spot painting, wouldn't be concerned. Issue is if a complete panels is done such as a saddlebag lid and not the saddlebag. You may find that the lid is fresh and shiny whereas the saddlebag is weathered and faded. Can lead to the domino effect.

This is the same paint code for the 1500 paint code. The '82 Aspencade used this paint scheme in reverse. The primary colour was the brown metalflake, the accent colour was the gold metalflake.

The one colour parts are not an issue. Remove the extra pieces that do not need painting such as lights, prep, then paint - works well. The issue is with the two tone parts that have pin stripe. The pin stripe is a decal and would have to be removed - used a razor blade - my opinion only. You then have to sand the decal area smooth to match the level of the brown/gold colour without loosing too much of the brown/gold outline. Once this is done, recommend using 1/8 inch pin stripe tape to delineate between the gold brown colour. The tape should outline the brown colour area. Paint the brown colour first. Tape and protect the gold area from the brown paint. 3 coats of the brown paint - do not clear coat at this time.

Once the brown paint is dry, 30 minutes to one hour, remove the paper used to protect the gold paint area. DO NOT REMOVE THE PIN STRIPE TAPE. Tape and protect the brown paint area. 3 coats of gold metalflake - do not clear coat at this time. Once the gold paint area is dry, remove the paper used to protect the brown paint area - DO NOT REMOVE THE PIN STRIPE TAPE.

The 1/8 inch pin stripe tape is the large black pinstripe that you see from the decal. Apply another 1/8 inch pin stripe tape on the brown paint side of the 1/8 inch pin stripe used to define the brown/gold paint areas. Apply 3 rows of 1/16 inch pin stripe tape on the outside (gold paint side) of the first pin stripe tape.

Once this is done, remove the original pin stripe tape that was used to define the gold/brown paint areas. Remove the middle 1/16 inch pin stripe tape that was applied on the outside of the original pin stripe tape.

You will notice that you have a 1/8 inch pin stripe line and 1/16 inch pin strip line that matches the original Honda decal design. Tape off the gold/brown areas that would be affected by overspray, and paint the black pin stripe lines - 3 coats of course.

Once the black pin stripe is done, remove all tape and protective paper, 3 coats of clear coat and you are done. Time consuming, but worth the effort.

Another option if you like the pinstripe look, is just to pay a pinstriper to do whatever stripes you want right before you clear coat. Those guys are fast, accurate and can do things you could never do with tape.
