Candy Orange paint

Ok so I have calmed down about my crash and now ready to start fixing my bike... The dealer has a painter that said he could not match my candy orange paint. I have to have a front fender and I am ok with that. However, my outer fairing and left saddle bag have scratches and chipped paint only. Painter said because I have painted inner he is afraid it will not match. Not sure why he said saddle bag will not match??

My question for you guys is matching this paint that hard and expensive to justify buying a new saddle bag and outer? Thanks

You might buzz up Hogpro. His post in the thread below had him looking for someone to share the cost of a $300 can of Candy Orange. He's also doing saddlebags.

What if the Hokey-Pokey really is what it's all about?

My bags were stolen and I just ordered color matched bags from Harley as the paint is $300 and labor to paint bags would probably be another $700 or more plus the price of the bags. I just priced getting a front fender only done in this color from Road Hawg here on the site. $350 labor, $300 paint plus the price of the fender. I'll stick with what I have for now as close to $1000 for a color matched fender is outrageous. I should have bought a black bike.

All that being said, if you want to buy the paint and split part of it with me that would be great. All I need is enough for a wrap around fender.

The part numbers for the paint are
98628-djs Ember Red basecoat $187.78
98628-dpu Candy orange base $139.06
99825-02 Urethan Activator $55.95

So it looks like $382.79 but I am sure we can get it for less from PC Pain.

If there are no other takers I'd do my inner fairing too. If there was enough .

Wow you can buy a color matched front fender from dealer cheaper... I have the problem of finding a painter that can match this up.. I will be the first to say Idk shit about paint... I am open to working together to reduce the cost!!!!

Do a custom paint job on it and you don't have to worry about matching it.
