66 Auto Color

Has anyone used 66 Auto Color? It looks like a good way to go if you do not have a spray gun.

Thanks!!

I'll let you know how it goes. I found the formula for Monza blue and they will make it and put it in a spray can. According to their web site the spray cans are more like a gun with the spray pattern.
I just want to paint a "S" fairing to match and this looks like it will work. At least I hope so.

You have to use a clear top coat with the base colour, so if you have any defects in the base coat you can cut them down before the clear top coat.

Makes getting a good smooth deep gloss finish a bit easier.

Pity they cant ship to Oz - I cant find anyone who can match Red 695 here.

Just ordered paint from them for my 1995 R110GS. They have the Alpine White which is the color of my bike. I already used their paint to paint my Speed Triple in black. I finished yesterday, and it realy turned out great. I think it looks better than one stage urethane paint that I painted my R100RT with couple of years back. I will paint my GS, and let you know how close their color was to original, and how it turned out.

I noticed that Monza blue was not on their list. My R75 is Monza blue, will they add it or will I need the formula?

Here's the glasurit formula for monza blue, although they list this for the years 1987-1990. They didn't have an earlier color listed. Those amounts are grams and are what goes into 1 liter of mixed paint.

BMW 038 MONZA BLAU MET


Base Amount Cumulative UNIT
M4 625.1 625.1 g
M99/02 112.9 738.1 g
A563 259.2 997.3 g
A926 11.3 1008.6 g
A427 11.3 1019.9 g
A527 2.3 1022.2 g
A430 0.8 1022.9 g

I got their Monza Blue for a 74 R90/6 and it was metalic so it did not match. I used it on a S fairing and it turned out looking good.
The one thing about it is that you have 12 hours to use it then it starts to harden in the can so no left overs for touch up.
