    Hey there,

    I recently had the sudden urge to mod an RG8 similar to Ben Eller's RG550-7 build -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kgJFPCjdMLk

    I know he states he used dayglo paint and it pretty much solves the problem of how to get those colours BUT I live in the UK and I'm not really wanting to pay $150 for a tin of paint.

    So I was wondering if anyone had researched this before, the old RG550 colours, not after a specific one so if there is a close match on any colour I'll take it.

    Cheers!

    Calum

    Have a look at the canbrush range of sprays,avalible across the UK (£3-4 a can at my local hardware stockist)

    C72 looks pretty close to bens RFR color (hard to tell as no 2 pics of road flare red i can find online look the same! some are more orange some a lot more pink)

    Ive used the c55 flu orange on a dx350 over a white gloss base and man in the sunlight it's pretty F'in Orange!

    "...we resemble, but are legally distinct, from..."
    That's really the problem with trying to find similar products here in Europe- the trademarked names make it quite a challenge.
