My color vision is far from perfect but I'm going with 3 because of that metallic.

1 is looking REALLY light to me. Obviously the screen you're looking at it on will affect everything but it looks way too light.

3 looks pretty darn spot on but if you put flake in 2 I could live with that lol

You can't match this with a poll on even a $500 monitor.

Even on a color accurate Eizo monitor thats been properly calibrated won't be able to replicate the flake/metallic effect of the 4 stage paint.

if you really want to get into photography and are serious you need a color accurate display. Eizo is the standard in the printing industry when a color accurate calibrated display is needed.

Even matching a powder coat to a paint is nearly impossible. Even if you're doing it in person haha. Best I can do is get close.

It looks like 2 with a silver metallic is basically the winner.

So I think that's what we'll go with. It'll have really nice depth too since we're essentially shooting 2 coats on it.

Sounds Awesome. Is it possible to see one done when you have the product. I'm looking forward to the 6 speed with the small RS logo in the center on the Atlas shifter knob

Will the two coats help with the knob getting hot/cold?

I probably won't shoot one before I shoot the whole batch at a time.

Yeah, it'll definitely help keep temps more normal.
