It's actually approx. $110/qt, you can order from any Polaris dealership. You need two, one red and one clear. It's best to use the Polaris clear for the most accurate results. The paint should also include a can of activator which is needed for the process. The codes are available, but it doesn't help, paint only available from Polaris. You can try and match it, and come close, but it won't be exact.

Well $400 was not to far off for quart (plus the activator) was not far off from the above quote. Pretty damn expensive red paint if you ask me:(

I just painted some parts to match the base model.
Color match came up a hyundai paint code.
There was 4 variables, the middle color was a great match
Paint code is YDG
Werked for me, I would test it before I sprayed it to see if it needed tinted. Like I said there is 4 variables

So just for base color chip touch up would it be the same as the 2015 Victory Cross Country "Havasu Red" - VIC030 ?
