Default Sunset red paint

I think I read somewhere on here that somewhere there is available paint in larger containers than touch up bottles. I am looking for sunset red. I dented my front fender and I was thinking of taking it to a body shop and pounded out then painted

I just bought paint from the only source for Midnight Cherry, so surely they'd have your Sunset Red.

That should be easy to find out. If the fender is off the bike, take it to a body shop large enough to have its own paint blending machine and get a quote. Tell them to be kind cuz its coming out of your pocket.
The new fender? Call your dealer's parts department. Let us know what you learn.

The sunset red is a two or three stage paint. I had some rocks get thrown up by a rig on the interstate a few years back and it took out a few small chunks on my left bag. It was black underneath the paint. I got the touch up bottles from Polaris and it now looks worse touched up than it before.

Yea it is hard to get a nick right. I am thinking that a body shop will charge me as much to fix and paint the fender as it would to buy a new one.
