2006 gl1800 burgundy paint code

Post by Mmtbpz » Wed Apr 18, 2018 5:18 am



Anyone have the code for the brandywine paint code for a 2006 gl1800..bike has sticker under gas door lid stating r303m..had local oaint shop mix up tricoat...not even a close match..anyone run into this problem..us paint and colorite paint chips show r303 as a red but the bike is more of a dark burgundy candy color..

Thx in adv
Peter

2006 R303M AJ7057 Cabernet Red Metallic (Candy)
If that is not a match, I suspect you purchased the bike used and it has been painted by a previous owner or your paint shop mixed it wrong!!!!

Well thats what i thought initially ..but the paint shop mixed up another small batch and it was the same...old guy there said that there was no way that the components in their mix formula was that color..it does look like the paint chip on color rites site...underside of fuel door has my code sticker and is od the same color as the top of the lid..so a repaint isnt possible..im at a loss

Good luck trying to match GL1800 reds, yellows, and oranges. Honda uses US Paint. To even come close, you will have to get their paint.

Thx for the replies..i went back to the paint shop and tried to come to a resolve with the owner..we matched a gm color and i sprayed the fairing yesterday..Have to say the color is bang on or 99%..i have to say no color chip ive seen from colorite..or us paint comes close to my color..this match was the fix for me ..the shop owner agress that it doesnt seem that the bike has been repainted..color gun called the paint brandy wine..
