I need your opinion. I want to paint my 1978 P200E. The original was a gray/silver color but the cowls and the nose were painted glossy black many years ago.
Now the cowls look terrible, the paint is softened oily from oil and gasoline spills. my question to you is:
1) Would it be better to try to get a original vespa color paint code or
2) Try to match the color using a existing sample
do you guys have any experience with paint? I was quoted $300 for the two cowls and nose including slight body work and $700 for the whole scooter including any body work. Here is a picture from a few years back. The cowls look terrible now.
