    I noticed a chip in the paint on the right side engine cover (where the oil fill port is).

    Does anyone know the color code for this? Or at least one the is close.

    I used VHT pearl black on my gen 5 engine case, and it is very close. There is a post on this forum that states the can number. If you don’t find it before tonight, I will post the number when I get home.
    If it is just a small chip, you could spray into a lid of some sort and then use a small brush to dab it on the case.

    Thank you both.
    It looks like VHT is only available in the USA.

    The closest I have found is Motip. They have two anthracite grey 800C paints. Light and dark.
