Hello everyone! I'm looking for some recommendations on what everyones favorite pearl white is. My wife and I are restoring a Vespa and will be doing a two tone turquoise and white. The turquoise will be Toyota 6W9....

Any suggestions?

The Lexus pearl white (can't remember the code) is nice. It has a blue tint that would go nice with your turquoise.
 
I prefer to blend in a good white base. So many choices and effects you can make, from one tone to rainbow with Pearl FX powder

Just googled that, it's a beaut! I've also been looking at Toyota's Blizzard White Pearl, might be very similar given they are the same, give or take, company.

just a pure white base with a little xirillic white pearl over.
I thought about doing that as I have some pure white and pearl powder, but I'm trying to keep this as simple as possible in case she beats it up....she has never driven a moped/motorcycle before! I will play with that in the future on some side projects though.

I agree with Jim - he recommended that to me 8 years ago - my wife’s Durango is painted that way - pearl shows up on body lines and when the sun hits it from the sides - morning and evening- otherwise it looks white most of the time over most of the car surprises a lot of people that didn’t realize it was pearl

yeah i dont know how it can get any more simple than that lol. no tints or toners. just pure white and pearl. the xirillic stuff is really white. not creamy and its more coarse with sparkle. give a nice snow white.

You don't think it would be hard to match down the road?
