2019 wicked red paint code
 
I have a 2019 RGU and want to paint a Bushtec trailer but cant find the paint code. PPG is the paint I want to use. Does anyone have a way to find it? :nerd:

Take your bike or a side cover or something to the shop you intend to buy the paint from and see if they have the camera system that takes a picture of the paint and basically tells them how to mix it. Other then that about the only way you're gonna get the paint is order it from Harley. HD is VERY tight lipped about their paint codes.

Well i was amazed to find out that even though I live in the 4th largest city in the US. No one has the automotive cameras to determine the formula for paint in Houston Texas. Most all of these are on the West and East coasts. Thanks for the information. Though a bunch of cross research, It appears to be a formula to a 2000-2003 Mazda paint code 75843 in Ditzler (PPG line). Harley calls it a E59.

I know you wanted to use ppg but in Houston you should have a keystone or lkq. I work for a location in central louisana and we have a camera system to match with and mix both lesonal and sikkens paint. Both are excellent paint. I recently used the camera to match some twisted cherry for my 2019.

I have used Sikkens paint before, very good paint. Do you know of a distributor in the Houston area that has a camera system?

Your 2019 Wicked Red is a carryover from 2018 colors.

Try calling "The Factory Match". They paint all kinds of custom fenders and parts in stock Harley Colors for many years of bikes.

They will be able to tell you the paint code for Wicked Red.

Find a local "jobber" or paint and body shop supply distributer, they should have a camera.

I know there is a keystone in houston and they mix sikkens there. They should have a camera system there to get you fixed up.

LKQ in Houston is a Sikkens/Keystone distributor. They came out and picked my panel up and matched the paint. Thanks and Great Shout out to Madmat and Houdini for the direction!!
