color code for f4 1000s frame,help!

I've been trying and trying... I know that palinal is a italian company that paints for mv agusta.. Thay say palinal 211xh893.. But in the u.s.a. no such thing.. So i got a nexa dealer that will make for me. But the problem is its a frame and wheel color ppg 954644. Which is a 2002 f4s evo wheel and frame color... Will this work it looks like the same? If not how much darker?? I tried getting it from england but customs returned it... Problemssss.any help would be good..

Find a high end auto body repair shop (like that repairs Porsche and Lambos and such)...they should be able to make paint to match any car...even after UV fade. A good body shop will make their own paint and could care less about any color codes.

I know of one in the Atlanta GA area, but I am sure you can find one near you. Just ask the exotic car guys.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

How are thay going to scan it? You need 6 inch's of flat area to scan. The frame is curved.. Also i don't want someone to eye a color on a mv.. Also to much hassle.. I'd rather do it.. Anyone?

Don't ask me....my body shop matched my Brutale frame perfectly. I don't think a good painter needs that much flat area. Also touched up the engine case perfectly.

Remember, the guys that repair Ferrari's have very particular clientele to satisfy. They had better be good or they won't be in business long.

Your right. It's just here in michigan we got snow. and we ride only 6 or 7 month's here. Also it was going to be a winter project for me. Is the 2002 f4 evo wheel color the same as the 1000s frame color??

i'd say yeah. i remember the frame getting darker with the R models. if you're getting the entire frame done, it won't matter if it's a hair off...which even if you had the EXACT color, it would be anyway. plus, most of the f4 frame is covered up. in other words, not a biggie to stress over if you're not perfect.
