    Frame paint?

    I need to give my EXC frame a bit of a spruce in places as it has surface rust due to wear and weather and doesn't look its best.

    I haven't been able to find anywhere to get the paint and my local KTM dealer has no info on this. Think I read something about using PJ1 spray but can't find anyone selling it as paint for these bikes as such.

    I know obviously stripping the frame and powder coating would probably be best but not an option really. I just want stuff either in cans, or that I can thin and spray via compressor.

    It's an 04 EXC450, and the colour is that sort of cross between grey/silver/gold if you know what I mean.

    Anyone know if there is an official paint code to get it mixed by a paintshop, or somewhere I can order it etc? And also, in light of not doing the whole frame, what kind of paint would be most hardwearing - presume it'd be 2k stuff to give the hardest finish?

    Cheers all!

    PJ1 used to do the KTM frame paints - but no more I'm afraid. Your best bet is probably getting a car place to paint match it - but get it done in good light, the last place I got to do that must have been blind and his guide dog was sick - proper dog's dinner!

    OK - had a rummage and I have a third of a can of ktm/silver grey 1998 - 2003 and most of a can of ktm gold 2003 - 2005.Also have the white sandable primer that I think you'll need.
    I'm in Bishops Stortford so either come around and pick it up or send me a couple of quid for p & p.
    p.m me what you want to do
