A listing of all 1989 Toyota Paint Codes and Color Names, including refinish paint codes for five major automotive paint manufactures – BASF (R-M), Dupont, PPG (Ditzler), Sherwin-Williams (Acme, Rogers, Martin-Senour), and Sikkens, is attached for your reference. Please note: Color numbers 042 and 049 are Tricoats (three-layer paint): base color coat, pearl (mica) coat and clearcoat. All colors listed as pearl or metallic have a clearcoat finish. Sikkens paint formula codes use the abbreviation “Toy” plus the Toyota paint code (for example, the paint formula code for 8G1 is Toy8GI) Martin-Senour paint formula codes are the same as Sherwin Williams codes for all new 1989 colors. Contact your Martin-Senour/NAPA dealer for all carryover 1989 paint formula codes. Please contact your local refinish paint representative if you encounter color match problems or require the actual paint mixing formula.

Attached for your reference is a listing of all 1990 paint codes and refinish paint codes for five refinish paint manufacturers – BASF, DuPont, PPG Industries, Sherwin Williams and Sikkens. Please Note: All colors listed in bold are new for 1990. Colors listed as Pearl or Metallic (M) have a clearcoat top coat finish. Colors 042 (Pearl White), 049 (Pearl White) and 051 (Diamond White Pearl) are tricoats (three stage paints), consisting of a base color coat, pearl (mica) coat and a clearcoat. Sikkens paint formulas are not separately listed in this bulletin since their paint codes simply add the characters “TOY” to our color codes in their literature. For example: Toyota color code 8D8 (Light Blue Metallic) is identified by Sikkens as “TOY 8D8.” PLEASE CONTACT YOUR LOCAL PAINT REPRESENTATIVE FOR THE ACTUAL PAINT MIXING FORMULAS OR FOR ADDITIONAL ASSISTANCE FOR COLOR MATCHING

That’s why Toyota has created the innovative Body & Paint Preferred Partner Programme. Having tested a wide range of Body & Paint repair products, Toyota has selected a number of companies whose products are of the highest calibre and offer superior results, and who offer reliable, Europe-wide distribution and support. It recommends that all Toyota Authorised Repairers across Europe use products supplied by these companies. They are of course free to choose which supplier they work with from this list of recommendations. Whilst Toyota has negotiated competitive parameters with each partner, exact contract details should be agreed between the partner and the Toyota Authorised Repairer. The programme allows savings made to be reinvested into further improvement of Body & Paint activities

it is the responsibility of the dealer to protect and maintain the quality of the vehicle’s finish after receipt at the dealership. Frequent vehicle washing, up to 4 times weekly during high heat and humidity periods, should be performed to minimize the potential for paint damage due to acid rain exposure. This is especially important in areas known for high frequency and concentration of acid rain and industrial fallout. INSPECTION AND REPAIR: Acid rain damage can frequently be identified on vehicles by the presence of visible spots on the paint surface which resemble hard water stains. Unlike water spots, however, acid rain damage cannot be removed by polishing or buffing only. Because acid rain can etch and soften the paint, normal polishing or buffing repair procedures should not be attempted, as this will result in visible depressions in the paint surface. CORRECTIVE ACTION: The repair of acid rain damaged paint surfaces varies depending on how deep the acid has penetrated. Superficial damage can usually be removed by color-sanding and polishing. If the damage extends to a depth greater than 1/2 mil of the clearcoat on a pearl or metallic color, or more than 1 mil of a solid color, sanding and repainting may be necessary. Unfortunately, there is no simple method of determining the actual extent of the acid penetration other than color sanding a representative affected area until there is no visible etching or depressions and then measuring the amount of paint removed with a magnetic type paint film thickness gauge

Step 1 — Locate ‘mold circle’ indentation on each side fairing panel (Pic 1). With panel mounted on bike, this indentation is center, at rear inside panel edge, and faces inside. Temporarily install bracket as shown in (Pic 2), align bottom bracket hole over indentation and mark for hole. Remove brackets at this time. Step 2 — Remove fairing body side panels. Four screws per side required for removal, see owners manual. Drill a 3/8″ hole at mark. If harness kit has not been installed, do not re-install left side panel until finished unless you remove tank to install harness. Removal of the tank is the best option to route harness from battery area to front of the bike. Step 3 — As required, re-install fairing body side panels. Do not re-install the top factory inner panel Torx Screw yet, as you will re-use this screw to secure the top light bracket mounting hole to the fairing panel. Step 4 — Using 10/32×1/2 screws and black shoulder washers from Hardware package, secure lights to PIAA Ezy-Mount® brackets (See Pics 3 & 4). Right side bracket is stamped ‘EZY-MOUNT’. See note below for Powersports lights. Due to close proximity of the light body to fairing side panel, access to the vertical adjustment screw on the panel side of the light will not be possible after installation. To prepare for this; before installing bracket/light assembly to panel, make sure this screw is tightened so that you can barely move the light body. After bracket is installed, final vertical adjustment can be secured with the inside screw. Torque on this screw is adequate to hold vertical adjustment, and the screw that faces the panel will not come loose. NOTE: WHEN INSTALLING POWERSPORTS LIGHTS, YOU MUST INSERT THE SHOULDER ADAPTER WASHER INTO THE LIGHT FOOT, BEFORE INSERTING SCREW TO SECURE LIGHT FOOT TO BRACKET. THIS ADAPTER CENTERS LIGHT FOOT OVER PEMNUT (TIGHTEN THIS SCREW SECURELY). Step 5 — Insert well nut into previously drilled 3/8″ hole. Place bracket assembly against fairing, aligning top hole with the top fairing mounting position; re-install the factory Torx screw at this location. Adjust as necessary and install the second supplied SS 10/32 x 5/8 Torx screw thru the lower bracket mounting hole to the well nut. With constant pressure on the screw, tighten securely. Constant pressure ensures that the rear expandable section of the well nut captures the back of the plastic inner panel as you tighten the screw. Future removal of fairing panels is now possible with light assembly installed (utilizing the bottom bracket mounting screw), thus re-alignment of lights is not required after normal maintenance.
