You do realise how badly I wish I could send my stuff to you for PC...
I ship items to some of your fellow "Ozians". Ridiculous prices, shipping is
often more than the goods. I'm considering renting space in a shipping
crate - we'll trade cost for time.
The RAL 3020 is as close as you will get without a custom mixed powder.
True statement. In fact, the RAL 3020 is a better match for the VMX plastic
than actual Tahitian Red. If you go with original plastic, use the custom
matched color. If you use aftermarket plastic, I recommend the RAL 3020.
So you do your own powder coating and have a curing oven???
Yes. Until recently, I did all of my own work. But I'm in the middle of a
giant mess relocating three shops into one new facility that is being built.

I have moved all of my gear from my California and Florida shops and only
have the smaller equipment left at my Tennessee shop. I still have my
powder coating guns and booth, but I'm limited to a 16 cu. ft. curing oven
as my large oven is in storage to be moved. Anything bigger than, let's say
a CR500 engine, I have to "rent" space in a friends oven. Same goes for
media blasting. I'm limited to a bench top cabinet because my "mongo"
blaster is also in storage. This is why I'm not taking powder coat work
right now for any of the larger items, like frames.

Once I get this new shop finished and set up - about the same time I hope
to take an early retirement from my day job, I'll be in gearhead heaven.

Does anyone know the closest equivalent RAL code for the Shasta White?

Cool on the larger single facility Dogger! It must have been a challenge to have things spread out over 3 locations like that. I am tempted to build a shop out in 29 palms but I live in orange county and I would have separate projects going at each or transport bits back and forth.
