Not the usual question, I've searched and found answers to a few of my questions and narrowed down my search.

I want to know what the paint code or colorrite.com paint I need to order for the front intake fairings on the all pearl white GSX-R600. It's not a full gloss and is closer to a flat black. I've used colorrite search but havent been able to narrow it down exactly to what shade is what even with their descriptions.

My gut and common sense is telling me to order this but I'm looking for a confirmation first. Now if you'll excuse me while I put on a flame suit. Also, how much should I order? Painting roughly 50% of my fairings.

Did you ever do the paint job? I've been debating on whether or not I would be doing the same thing but I haven't seen a single picture of a bike that someone has done this to... I'm very interested to see how this turned out.

Thanks for the suggestion fixture, its between them and colorrite when the money is right.

Jason, no I haven't painted the bike yet, but with the bike dropping off its kickstand 2 days ago (read about it a couple threads down) Its more likely than ever.

I found this picture on my hard drive, this is the scheme I photoshopped for when it comes time to throw a coat on it, ignore the helmet and such. It was mostly for my own reference and I didn't plan on spreading it around.
