OK so I work at an auto body shop and I found a perfect match, its just down to deciphering the code and being able to let you know the exact numbers... Its an RM paint system but I can then transfer it to PPG or AK if need be. I know guys are using that Honda code for the teal mist metallic or whatever it is but its way too green. I will keep you all posted as to my findings! Just trying to help the community :drunkie: I will also post a color name so that you guys can get an exact match on your own systems. I know we have a "color" on here from sears but no formula as far as I can see.

Napa does it to. I replaced a fender on my truck last year. So I went to napa, And all they do is scan you trucks paint with a little portable scanner. And then plug it into the computer. The computer then mixes the proper colors to match yours. It come out perfect on mine. I think I'm going to bring my Sears super 12 down to them. My super 12 is in really good shape. And the paint is **** near perfect in most spots. I will have them whip up a can of it and I'll test in on something to match it. The original paint was called jade mist metallic blue. I hear Rust-oleum's "Verde Green" is a very good match.

I personally would prefer a true automotive paint over a rattle can of whatever they wanna whip up that day... I used our chips to determine an absolute perfect match so for those who also prefer automotive either 2k, enamel or standard urethane this will be helpful. You must remember that when you purchase rattle cans that in alot of cases they're not going to have a good protection to fluids or UV, also they don't work with other types of paint and may curtel when a topcoat is applied. This way you can use a clear of your choice with a drop of flatterener to achieve a professional and quality job. I'll keep you posted on the name and code as soon as I decifer it!
