Hey guys, Where can I get some tsukuba red paint? Planning to buy a bumper and would be awesome if I paint it.

Or any alternative colour for tsukuba red ?

You can probably still get it directly from Hyundai. I would also consult a body shop. I am sure that if you give them a paint code and offer to pay them for a can, they would probably do it.

good luck with that, even with the "correct" paint, it's not going to be a match.
Look for an auto paint shop in your area, give them paint code NGA (might want to double check that the paint code is correct) and ask to primer to paint a plastic bumper.

Paint, then take it to the an auto paint shop and have them blend paint the bumper, to make the paint difference less noticeable.

NGA is correct but Hyundai had two different versions I think. Take the bumper hook plug along to color match.

They can get pretty damn close. I got BumperPlugs from the company to cover the drilled holes where my plate went. They matched the Silverstone PERFECTLY. I was honestly stunned. I can't tell the difference.
Granted, I have colour deficient vision.

I have tried to get paint (Silverstone) from my dealer and all they can provide me with is one of those "Touch-up" type brush and pen things. To get a match, they said I would have to check with a paint company. Seems strange that they would not be able to stock quart cans of colors for their lines of cars.

Let alone the colour. Correct me if I am wrong, but the BK2 cars had different paint codes.
