But I did just send an email to the powder company to try and get a swatch done for me.
I ordered 5 swatches (including "Nitro Blue") to try. I'll hold them up against my NB car for you and post when they get in!

Don't forget to do it in the sun, the shade, and if possible, overcast.

And definitely not taken with a cell phone camera, please.

I got the sample of bic blue with the metallic flake. It came out awesome. I'm bringing it to FocusFest this weekend with me, hoping a NB RS will be there and I can snap some photos.

But it looks awesome. I really like this color.

bic blue doesn't even sound familiar? I thought raider got some swatches and found a great match to his Nitrous Blue RS?

Found the post, Sparks blue.

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.
Don't worry about thirdgen89gta, that dude is like that character from Rocky and Bullwinkle.

I know this is a tread resurection but unless you have a caibrated colour monitor then the colours may look different anyway on screen to in person
