Has anyone ever compared Duplicolor's paints to the original Diamond Dark Green Kaw used on KZ900s? There's a deep green metalflake called "Deep Emerald Green" that to me looks very close to the Kaw color. I've painted two bikes with it using the Duplicolor as a base, letting it dry for a couple days then sanding it and hitting it with a few coats of Eastman 2K. Results have been very good and worked out well for me since I wasn't doing a museum quality restoration anyway. Just wondering how close my discount paint job is to doing the 3 part from Paintworks.

Looks great!

Not sure if it matches but the only way to tell is if an original was sitting next to it. I've been to car shows and have seen multiple Mopars painted plum crazy purple all different shades. lol

Yes, unless they're up next to each other it would be really hard to tell. The only thing I've seen with the Paintworks painted bikes is they kind of change color in different light and look a lot lighter in the sun... which is true for any dark color but the 3 part seems to do it more so.

Translucent Candy top coat over a true .002 " silver metalflake base will always pop in the sun. ......... just looking at your pics it just looks like a car color. But yours looks good and as long as you are happy with the look...most people will not notice the difference
