Painting inner fairing

So, I'm looking at bringing my inner fairing plastics to the paint shop. Now, my question is; should I try and let the painter get a close match on the paint or should I buy the HD paint and bring it in?

My color is Mirage Orange, and I have the paint code. If I were to buy the paint, where would I buy it from?

dinggus, get a hold of RoadHawg on here.
He's the owner of Mike's Hawg Paint in California.
He does awesome work and can probably help you out.
Mike's a great guy and I know many members have had him do paint for them and have been extremely satisfied.
Hope this helps.

Thank you, I don't know how he can help other than either help me with the paint code or sell me paint. I live in Europe.

Mirage Orange is a tricky tri coat but the PPG code (found above in the pinned post) is a perfect match.
The colorite paints and the stuff from the Harley dealer parts counter rarely match and only attempt to mimic the more complex tri coat colors

I did the topshop bags, rear fender and speaker lids on this bike a few years ago,

Btw, this is one of the colors where a HD factory pre painted inner fairing might be a better option, it might cost a little more but would be less headaches in the long run.

The bags look good. Is PPG a company?

Should I even try to see if my painter can get a match? My buddy had to get his rim painted for his car, the painter got a 94% match (according to the computer) and it looks the same as his other rims.

I already cut speaker holes in my inner fairing, so it's either I get it painted to match, or just go out and by black spray paint.

But then I'm buying a rear kit as well, so the fender and bags will need to be painted as well.

PPG is a major paint company and you should have some auto body supply stores in Europe that sell their automotive finishes
The PPG formula number you want to use is "Mirage Orange 904763"
