Tenni Paint code cracked ?
« on: July 23, 2011, 03:29:53 PM »
So I was at my local Lowes today getting a new and long over due home A/C system filter, So I'm walking down the paint aisle and just for S**ts and grins started looking at the spray paint selection, Eh What's this, why it is a can of Rust-Oleum Satin Spruce Green.



I have been searching for a color match to apply on the Flat Black Givi A770 screen that I have. I want to paint the lower part of the fairing screen the "Tenni" color, the middle leave flat black and a white accent tape where it meets the screen. Bought the can home and when I put the color cap up against the Fuel tank on the Griso, I was stunned, I then sprayed an flat black piece of extra Guzzi plastic, I became overjoyed.

Look at the results comparing it to the front fender.



More then close enough for Government work

Now to spray paint one of your fenders, and see if it matches!
 ;D

Actually, it's probably worth a shot on that fairing you are going to add.  Worst case, it will make a nice primer.

RH Lacke sells all kind of ducati paints too.

It might not pass the EPA restrictions at USA customs. We've regressed to watercolors and crayons here in the USA.  ;D

Sure looks like that color will work.  I love that green, especially with silver or white.  Nice find.  Show us your results if you would.
