    1987 OEM Colors

    Im looking for close color matches specifically powder coat Gold, also a good engine paint to match the OEM metallic dark grey? If theres no information on specific close matches ill just wing it, no worries. Also would I be a "hack" if I paint over engine hardware? My top end and clutch are very fresh.

    Anybody know what gold was used on this build? It does look a little darker than stock. https://dirtwheelsmag.com/honda-250r...in-450r-frame/

    I 2nd that VHT wheel paint is a perfect match, and I’ve never found a powder that matches the OEM gold exactly either, it’s usually too dark. My ‘87’s OEM A-arms still have the clear coat and the only thing I found that is almost exactly the same is the POR-15 Gold, the engine paint gold. It’s almost exact if you stir it up good.
