Exactly the post I was looking for...a DIY on the Candy Green! Hell yes! I looked at the Marbles products as well but wasn't sure I wanted to drop $43 a can on this project.

A few questions if you or anyone knows the answer. Here are the Duplicolor part numbers I think apply but wanted to be sure. I've already ordered 2 cans of the metalcast green MC203
Self Etching Primer - DAP1690
White Primer. Assume its the sandable version - DAP 1689 but I saw others used the gray primer sealer (DAP1699)
Flat Black - assume standard flat black paint. I know it's just a dusting to sand and find imperfections
White Base - should this be the enamel gloss (DA 1670 or flat DA 1672) or something else?
Metal Cast Ground Coat - silver? MS200 or MC100? There's also a green version MS500 but I think you mean the MC100 www.duplicolor.com/product/metalcast-anodized-automotive-paint/

I went forward this weekend with repainting my LT2. Ordered decals from Diablo but couldn't wait to see the result so did a loose install. Huge thanks to Devin for pointing me in the right direction for an off the shelf candy green option that could work. Just need to take it to the next level and take it down to the frame and clean everything up.

Just a question regarding the often recommended Duplicolor DE1615 for the silver fenders...
I picked up an old front fender in real nice shape for my '75 DT250-B and I need to paint it.  Seeing as the DE1615 is marketed as a high heat engine enamel with ceramic, will it adhere ok to the plastic?  Also, does anyone recommend a specific primer before the final coat on plastic parts such as the front fenders?
Thanks in advance!

   Still need to do tank decal and clear coat for my 69 CT1 but here is the outcome. Had a custom match at a locate auto paint store. I can ask for the formula if anyone needs it. Haven’t seen this color discussed yet.

  Stopped by House of Kolor for a few cans of spray max clear and asked about a candy color to better match the CT3 than the VHT burnt copper. Here are a few swatches. I personally think the lighter one called pagan gold would work great.

I have a 72 mini enduro and 71 DT1 250.  They are both supposed to be mandarin orange when I look up the serial numbers.  However the 250 is clearly lighter in color.  Either it is faded or a different color.  It really waxed up nice and does have a nice shine so maybe it is supposed to look that shade of orange.  Any thoughts ?

Sometime back I had some nos headlamp ears and a nos oil tank for a 71 250. 
Paint didn't match on them either. I think that color was one of the worse to 
fade that Yamaha made. D
