Default Re: jaguar paint?

I found two that were close. Neither are an absolute perfect match but close enough that you will be hard pressed to see the difference. Coincidentally, these paints also match the blue used on a Huffy that I built for my nephew.

DupliColor automotive touchup paint: Ford Royal Blue, code # DSFM 340

Tamiya model car paint: Deep Metallic Blue, code # TS-53

A word of caution. Neither of these are gasoline resistant. You'll need to top coat them with a good clear coat. Don't try Duplicolor clear. It doesn't like gas either. I've had good luck with model airplane clear. It will take gasoline, alcohol, nitromethane and just about anything else you want to throw at it. Always paint indoors because as you know, there's 'dust in the wind'. Good luck and let's see some pictures of your finished bike.
