What's the best way to get a spray can size of OEM/OE color-matched paint for my 2008 bike? I have the code; just wondering where to begin with getting the stuff. I don't have a spray gun or that skill, and it's a small job (rear front fender).

WARNING! Some of the colors (for example - my '08 Pearl Alpine White) are actually three different layers. It can be pretty expensive by the time you get the minimum quantity of all three colors and get someone to put them in rattle cans for you!

It's a Honda colour so I went down to the motor factors, they looked up the code and they mixed up an aerosol while I waited. Give it a go if you have a motor paint supplier local to you.

Drair. I once had a paint match done by my local auto-paint store for a car. He used a special camera, shot my good part to get a color match, and put it in an aerosol can. Now as long as you're not 'taking it to the fair,' that will probably work for you.
