Default Color of stripes

It is time for ERA 696 to go to the paint shop.

It will be painted red (Honda R51) with white stripes.

Should the stripes be Wimbledon White or just plain white?

I went with the plain white and have heard of some stripes that have a touch of the body colour in them.

The Wimbeldon white is a little more cream.

Perhaps try a little of each on a card and lay it on the body see what looks better...

i agree with bernie. it is an important decision. so make sure you are going to get what you really want.

get a sample of some metal painted the honda red and then lay a sample of a white / white and a wimbledon white next to it.

i have the SPF red with bright white stripes. my white stripes look pale next to the creamy look of a wimbledon white. two distinctly /vastly different hues of white , which could also affect the appearance of the red . some accents might turn the red more orange red and others might make it appear more blue red.

having the paint mixed and samples painted would be the cheapest $75-$100 you spend on your paint job. bill.
