    5010 Matte Grey color code

    Does anyone know the Pantone or hex color code for a 2014 5010c matte grey?

    I emailed santa cruz and they said "The paint code for the decal is TA62038 and PMS 3405c. The color for the frame is just matte carbon."
    Thanks,
    Evan

    I have a 2017 Matte Grey TB. Not sure if your 5010 is the same color, but Santa Cruz said the Pantone code was PMS 445c for the 17' TB.

    During a recent bearing overhaul, I ended up taking the rear triangle of the frame to my local Home Depot paint dept. They have a really cool scanner that allows them to create a custom paints. After a few seconds of scanning they had the custom paint code and I purchased one of the small samples they sell, about $5 bucks, for exterior matte. They also sell a small paint brush set, that's perfect for touching up nicks and scratches on the frame. So far, the paint is holding up great!

    I also saw another post where someone found a grey color with Testors Model paint that seems to match up pretty well.

    Good luck and let me know if you find any other good sources. btw, with the PMS code you can also order custom paints online, but they're pretty expensive unless you buy in bulk.
