    Default Rattle can denim black

    Anyone know which spray paint is close to Denim Black? I tired matte black, but not quite enough sheen.

    In Germany we have a Seller but unfortunately no RaL No.Homebrew...)))))
    Sry.allways used it on my Fat bob and the XRX 2010 in the Beginning.
    Mattblack sometimes shines Blue or Brown.So you have to buy 4 diff Cans for a Test.

    Keep in mind,all HD Bodyparts are Black before Painting.Even Orange or Silver aso.
    Using a lighter Primer will give a diff. Result from Origin.
    As i know Colors are from PPG.

    you might try a spray paint made by Krylon its also known as Fusion made to paint plastic, the color is Satin Black.
    Like any paint job, good preparation is 90% of the job, filling in any cracks or chips with body filler, sanding, sanding, and more sanding until everything is smooth and even, maybe a coat of primer first, then more sanding, grease remover and use a tack cloth and you're ready for paint!
    Good Luck, and show us your results!

    Try some cheap rattle can Satin Black on a test piece, I've used it for years with good results when I didn't want a shiny finish, I think it will be a good match for Denim.

    Harley used to sell rattle cans of Denim Black (I bought one,); not sure if they're still available, but probably worth checking at the dealer.

    I just saw a video on you tube that shows John Deere Blitz Black as a close color. I have no personal knowledge of said color.

    I used Krylon Fusion Satin Black, it's close enough until I have the XR painted over the winter.
