Note: If your paint code is a tri-stage (ANY PEARL WHITE COLOR), you will need to order two cans to get these colors. One is the base color, and the second will be your midcoat color.
Note: Not all older OEM colors or motorcycle colors will be available, also tri-stage colors will require two aerosol cans to create the color. Mavic H20 base coat will provide a blend-able match, we cannot guarantee a perfect match due to manufactures color variations from the factory.
