    Hi All,

    May I know do you guys know is there any color code for this gold color?
    or any other brand have the closest gold color which similar to this?

    Need advice from ZTH Sifu's :adore::adore::adore:

    Thanks in advance =)

    I consulted Fazidk before for this paint color too :biggrin:
    Due to afraid of the colour that may turn out to be different that expected, I scrap the idea of it.

    Also this professional painter told me that if happen to be any damage to your car paint, is not gonna be easy to touch up the same mix of that gold. Might turn out different.

    Their Top Secret GOLD, is actually Top Secret :biggrin:

    No problem bro, just sharing. End up, choosing a Factory colour with paint code which is easier for the paint shop/fazidk to find.

    At least the color will turn out exactly the one I wanted. Example, I want Subaru WRX STi Blue.
    Then search for the Paint Code. Showing them pictures alone is hard for the paint shop pros to
    actually paint it exactly.

    So, got them the Paint Code and then they will be able to quote you the paint price accordingly. Pearl or Crystal Paint effect will cost more though.

    Factory color code is the closest, but also not 100% same unless you get same batch from the one sprayed on your car.
    If need special color mix make sure painter gives you a can to keep in case of touch up repairs...:driver:

    If its factory color then it x cause much problems when d time comes to touch up or wateva...even so I prefer to mix extra just in case eg. If a car needs 3litres normally I'll mix 4 or 5 depending on d color...for custom mix color even more...but it tends to b costly but safe in case need to respray/touch up...x all customers willing to pay d extra so if need be then bring d whole car instead of d usual petrol cap mixing...TAKE NOTE THAT EVEN BY DOING THIS COLOR X BE 100% MATCH...

    Ya, for touch ups, or repaint, when car aged, paint fades also will see the difference. Just like my Saga BLM, the doors there can see slight difference if really see properly. But acceptable. Like as though is a shade of the paint under sunlight :laugh:

    That's why I ask you for factory color instead. Don't want to risk it :laugh:
