Good evening everyone, 

I couldn't find anything on the forum with paint codes. Does anyone know what the PMS color is for the dark Kawasaki green? Ive attached a picture of the paint I'm trying to match below. I think it's called Diamond Dark Green or Holy Green? Thanks again!


edit*** maybe it’s starlight blue?? 


Cheers

Hi Whiskey
The original color for the 79 model is Starlight Luminous Blue. There is (as per my knowledge) no color code available.
All the best

Also check this site.

(about 2/3's the way down the page)
I don't think you'll get what you want in a shaker can mix. the original color was a tricoat paint meaning, a silver metallic base coat, followed with a candy color and then a 2K clear coat.

My personal preference was going with Hose of Kolor Silver Orion Max base coat, followed with in my case Brandywine candy and then 2 K clear coat. Branywine is almost a dead ringer for Honda's Candy Glory Red which is what I want my bike to look like. I bought the paint and have been sitting on it due to "other" life commitments holding me back. But for the record the House of Kolor paint cost me $670 CDN and it's probably enough to do 2 bikes with since I had to buy a liter of each plus a liter of 2K primer.

Just a quick look of the House of Kolor paint chart , I think this cobalt blue would be pretty close.
House of Kolor Cobalt Blue pain and I would change out the base to Orion Silver Max. The flip flop of the metallic is absolutely amazing.  House of Kolor Orion Silver Max
and a video of Jon Kosmoski explaining the Orion Silvermax base coat and spraying . ( Kosmoski is the absolute paint guru for House of Kolor)

I found this guy on Facebook that can reproduce the factory paint colors. We’ve exchanged a couple emails and he seems to really know his craft. He doesn’t ship outside of the U.S. though. I copied his Facebook like below.

Below is a pic of the recreated starlight blue against the original paint. Looks pretty good to me. $230.00/quart though. I was told 4 coats plus a clear will get the desired affect. I'll let everyone know in a couple weeks how it comes out.
