    Source for color matched spray paint

    I just got myself a 1988 K100RS with the "special edition" paint scheme.

    The fairing has been repaired and repainted by one of the previous owners and what they did was not quite the right color and has not held up well. They also didn't do the colors right on the fairing (it should be 2 tone blue and white)

    I'm wondering if there is a source of spray touch up paint that would be correct.

    They charge a small fortune to paint it for you. They will sell you small quantities of base coat, paint and clear coat. You just need to ask them if it comes in cans and you use a compressor on your own, or bring the can to a body shop for possibly better results, or if they can put it in an aerosol or non-aerosol can for you. They have the correct paint codes for all things BMW, are very knowledgeable and friendly.

    You could also try http://www.colorrite.com/, but don't expect miracles from them with an exact match.
