    Question help with yamaha engine color code or mix for powdercoating

    ok I am getting ready to get my skis up and running again (took a long break form them) and going to rebuild all the engines they also have allot of corrosion form years of salt water use so I would like to bead blast the cases and re-powder coat them but I can't find the exact color name and mix information so I can get someone to mix me a few pounds of powdercoating

    Does anyone know the mix for paint or powder coat for the exact original Yamaha engine color?

    yamaha did grey ,black and nothing
    seadoo did yellow,white,silver,black

    on my stuff i blast it clean then paint it with zinc primer then paint it black
    the zinc primer stops corrosion! it is also $$$$$ but well worth it

    ok well it's the blueish/grayish metallic type color and there yamaha engines of course 93 & 94 650 vxr's and 93 (I think) 701 blaster. The engines are original factory coating and probably don't need to do a complete engine rebuild if it wasn't for wanting to redo the finish, I mean after all it is a Yamaha and only it's 16 or 17 years old there just barely broke in .....lol. I'm also doing a older 1200 non powervalve engine for a poject but want it the same color trying to get all four back on the water

    I don't mind spending a little more for the zinc primers and paints I would rather do it right once then wrong a dozen times (I learn slow but I do learn...lol) I am really wanting to powder coat them even though it is a little more work I think it is more durable but painting is my second choice I can do either my self just have to buy the correct powder or paint. I like the yamaha color I just don't know exactly what color to ask for when ordering my powder coat

    Don't know if this helps you at all, but when I repainted mine, my buddy who owns a body shop mixed up the paint for me and the closest it came too was a BMW silver. You can also buy the spray cans of paint with close to original yamaha colors for outboards.
