    1983 Candy Imperial Maroon

    Hi All I have been a a lot quiet lately because of work however progress has been made on my Kat.
    I am having a lot of trouble with the Maroon on the top of tank and fairing.
    Does anyone know where to buy this or does anyone have that paint on their bike that could get it colour matched for me?
    Regards Shane

    Hey Shano, on the front page of the forum is this link to a PDF with all the Suzuki colour codes: http://www.suzuki-katana.net/member/...lour-codes.pdf

    Candy Imperial Maroon is listed as 05L in there. I don't know for certain on the 05L but 13L Bright Silver Metallic is definitely produced by PPG in their Deltron range. I was able to walk in the door at Peninsula Paint Supplies up at Kippa-Ring where they mixed it on the spot for me. The Deltron range isn't cheap ($120 for 500 mL I think) but it's real nice paint to spray with and I'm really happy with the results.

    I'd say give them a bell and see if it's available.

    Thanks Pete
    I will call them.
    I did get the Silver 13L from ppg
    House of Kolors appear to have a similar color but with nothing to compare it to it is hard to say.

    That's a real bugger! Geoff (Power O regular) has that coloured tank, not sure how to figure out matching from that though. He's not on the forum unfortunately.
