    I need to paint a headlight bucket on a 69 CT70 KO in Ruby Red. Does anyone know of a spray paint that is close in color? Thanks.

    Yes, that Metalcast paint matched the paint on my Candy Yellow Honda CL100 very nicely. Not perfect but plenty close enough.

    We've seen good results with the Metalcast paint. You should probably prime the bucket with some plastic primer, before using the Metalcast, to avoid problems.

    What red is that called? MC200? How does it compare to the marble motors if using to touch up a 6 inch by 3 inch patch?

    Not sure how it compares, but I think there is a big difference in price. Marbles motors is likely better quality paint tho. Word is, technique is a HUGE factor in what you end up with. AND, word is, a good, invisible repair, is all but impossible

    Anything is better than what the previous owner did lol. I'm just looking for something passable. If that's not achievable I may make this hk1 in candy Ruby red my piranha 140 bike and get some kind of custom graphics where the shit show is.
