Candy Lime Match

Hi Folks,
I picked up one of those large JC Whitney trunks (47.99 USD!) and like most others didn't like the orange trim.
I got lucky at a local hobby shop finding this Tamiya Color Candy Lime Green(TS-52) paint. $4.99 CDN for 100ml.Did three coats and clear and it looks very close to the real thing.It's not as light as the photo on the tank would indicate(reflection I assume).
I might do my lowers next. Right now I have one black and one silver.

Looks nice. That adds a great highlight to the back of the bike.

Mean Green

Now all you need is a green hugger.
Great job.

Hey, thanks for the tip on the paint find. Hopefully I can find it in the US. Then I'll cancel the da_m factory saddlebags (I wanted them for the color match trim) and order the Givi from TwistedThrottle.

My toys:
'09 Versys in Cool Lime ~ '06 Harley Roadking
'95 Suzuki DR350S ~ '94 Suzuki DR350S
'09 Kawi STX15F jet ski ~ '07 Kawi STX12F Jetski
'09 Yamaha Superjet ~ '13 Ram 4X4 3500 Cummins
'09 BMW 535i ~ '10 Kubota B3300SU

Here's the link to it at Tower Hobbies. I'm pretty big into RC as well and use Tamiya paint on my models.
