I am doing some powder coating on my 2015 Anniversary Switchback and was wondering if there was any way to find out Pantone color of the red on the Switchback?

Cat lists their pantone colors on line......Your best bet might be to stop by your local sign or paint shop and compare your parts with their color charts......IMO as a sign guy, it's still a crap shoot as different printers and mixes produce different colors. Usually takes us two or three tries to get exact matches from our printers.......

You can go to the prismatic powder web site and look for the color and shades your looking for and send for samples. Someone may know the color and chime in, but this is one way. Keep it simple when looking.... they’re not going to use a custom color, it doesn’t have flake, and it will be a one coat color.

You have 2 options. Allpowderpaints.com buys the Indy red from Midwest coatings who manufactures it for Polaris and repackages it in smaller quanties. Midwest will only sell it in 50 lb. boxes. Prismaticpowders.com has a red that is spot on also.
