Default Color Rite Paints??

Anyone have any experience with the Color Rite brand Aerosol paints. Picked me up a spare inner fairing and thinking about using their product to paint it Big Blue Pearl to match the rest. Any and all opinions appreciated.

I used them for my Mirage Orange Pearl. I painted my bag latches and Sanchos wings initially with them, and later my Hogg Chopps. It was a real close match, but not right on. It appears to me to be missing the "Pearl", which might just not be possible with the aerosols.

If it were me I would use real paint if I were doing the inner fairing.

Thanks for the reply Hullhorr, I appreciate your input. The "real paint" may be the better option especially if I don't get any positive feedback from those who've been there.

I have had quite a few guys bring parts to me that they attempted to paint with those spray cans, it rarely matches just by nature of the type of paint it is.

Nothing beats good ol' base/clear in the proper PPG formula to match the HD color you have.
