Yeah for Seattle Silver Rattle Can Touch Up Paint!
Written by ocartprof on 5/4/2011 at 04:52 am

My 89 had the usual dings and scratches especially on the crash bars and mirror
holders. I ordered two vials of touch up paint from Honda. Here are the new
part numbers
08704-NH1251P-PN Pearl Pacific White and
08704-NH253M-PN Ocean Grey Metallic.
Both came in 1/2 oz containers with a built-in brush and a roller ball mechanism
that was supposed to deliver paint like a ballpoint pen but didn't work at all.
They cost $6.99 each

I tried both colors but they were not opaque enough to cover scratches that went
deep o into the black plastic body. So off to the auto store (Pep Boys) for
some Duplicolor touch up paint. I got a vial of HA 00950 Honda Frost White
NH538 and used that for an undercoat. It was a fair match for the main body
color by itself and an excellent base for both the pearl white and the metallic
grey.

But the huge success was a can of Duplicolor spray paint, BHA0957 Seattle Silver
Metallic that I also got at Pep Boys. It's a *perfect* match for the lower
panels of our PC's. My crash bars were badly scratched and I did an under coat
of the frost white to cover the black plastic followed by the Seattle Silver
spray and then a couple of coats of Acrylic lacquer from a rattle can. Ta-Da!
Perfectly touched-up.

Every PC owner should buy a can of Seattle Silver Metallic-- Its a winner!

    Thanks for the info, Dave! Gonna swing by my local Pep Boys and see if they have any in stock. Got a worn heal spot on my lower right side behind the peg I need to touch up. --- In

    Not so much for owners of 96-98s, but I guess they already know that ;) Phil Northern VA 1994 PC800 - Obsession > > But the huge success was a can of Duplicolor spray paint, BHA0957 Seattle Silver Metallic that I also g

    Coasters, What is involved with a motorcycle inspection in VA? I've looked on the VA DMV web site; it looks pretty standard (tire tread, lights, turn signals, brake lights, brakes), but will I have to remove the front wheel covers

      Mike, If they require inspecting the VIN, you ought to practice finding it before you get there. IIRC, it is described in the Owner's Manual. It is also in the Service Manual:

        All, Does anyone have the two metal fender brackets lying around that attach the front fender to the bike? I ordered a new front fender for my 89 about three years ago and never got around to putting it on. Finally decided to repla

          Mike, Those brackets don't come with the fender, you have to order each part. They should be available from Honda. Fred --- In

          I'll double check my box of stuff. I think that I got those with the 'hardware' that I bought on flea-bay. I know that the special bolts are not there, I ended up ordering through the dealer. Be in touch, or write me off line (private ema

          Mike, I just got done cleaning up the garage. In doing so, I found the 2 brackets you are looking for from a 96 PC (Mr Hyde's). If you are still interested in getting a set, let me know. $15 +_ shipping. Jerry --- In

      Mike, Bike inspections in VA are done at inspection stations like cars except they usually need you to be on hand to operate signals, horn, brake light, etc.. Some inspectors also ride so you can drop the bike off and car pool to work.

      Hi Mike, I doubt things are much different down in Norfolk than they are up here in Northern VA. You shouldn't have to remove any plastic. I take my bike to the Honda dealer for inspection, but apparently any inspection station can do it.
