Anyone ever paint Motorsport stripes on the wall of a home office or garage? I want to do this in my office in my new house :) Any suggestions on the colors would be helpfull. I looked at Home Depot yesterday and was overwhelmed by the selection and slight differences in colors.

We did our garage in Gloss white with a "BMW logo blue" stripe running around just below chest height. (Sorry no pictures yet).

We figured the gloss white would be easier to keep clean and brighten up the space.

Get something with the Motorsports colors on them, and take it to Home Depot. They can use their magic computer system and color match them.

Somewhere I have the exact Motorsports colors, but it must be at home, and I am in Brazil.

As for garage walls (sort of OT) I use Kinnser bathroom/kitchen paint in gloss white. This paint film forms after basic drying is avery water resistant, so you can actually wash the walls. Also mildew resistant to avoid problems if your garage is at all damp.

I painted my office goss white and then overlaid with blue to about 5 feet high from the floor. My wife and I shared office at home-we both agreed on this combo. The floor belong to my 13 months old son, we have a tracetrack carpet for his 1/18"-Z3. My next project to paint the garage with motorsport roundel in the center of the floor - whenever I come around to it.

I got my paint from Home Depot. If I can find the left over paint can, I will PM with the paint code.

Those are the numbers I have at home. :)

Who needs a GALLON, you can paint the whole room with a gallon. You need a quart of each, and you will have plenty of paint left over.

I'm a "retired" printer and 5rakete is right on with the colors. When my ex was a CCA Regional VP we had "The Book" and those were the colors listed. If your paint store can't deal with a Pantone color number, go somewhere else.
