Paint Match for the 89 FZR Pearl White?

Postby Straycat » Thu Sep 04, 2014 11:37 am

Hi all, im new here (see my first post in the FZR400 section) and am starting to restore an 89 FZR400.

It will get a full repaint (by a pro), and it will be sprayed in Dupont baterborne automotive paint.

What I need to know is, is there a close match that any of you know of, to an car manufacturers Pearl White. I have no intention of paying the money to colorrite for the factory match, its just too expensive.

Ive heard that possibly Cadilac Diamond White Pearl ? any others that this community knows of?.

If necessary I guess I'll have to walk the shopping mall parking lots with my front fender in hand and compare to some vehicles to see whats closest.

thanks in advance

I did my 250 in Mazda's Snowflake Pearl. Possibly an option?
