I believe someone has identified a matching touch-up paint for the Nimbus Gray used on the GL650.
Has anyone found a decent match in a rattle can? I want to cover more area than a touch-up stick can handle.

Thanks.

Depending on weather exposure & sun fade, you might do better to find a paint supplier that can color match your bikes adjacent areas and mix up a spray can for you. I live in a <25000 people town, of which 7500 are transient college students, and have a PPG store that will color match and mix rattle cans for you.

Factory matching new paint doesn't always match existing/original paint.

On this trunk I have used thRust-Oleum High Performance Wheel in Graphite 248930. I bought it at Menards
I think that's what I'm looking for. It's not time for a full paint job yet, but I'd like to get close on some mismatched pieces.
Thanks!

When you are ready for a good paint job don't forget the Spraymax 2k clear. It's worth the money and makes a rock hard clear with 2 part activation.
