Hi all !1
Trying to workout / locate paint 1983 XV 750 MK midnight special is the Australian / New Zealand version ( paint should be the same ) tried to match without code but black I have is not 100 % ( under flouro light grey tinge is visible when side by side with original )
Using acrylic paint...
