I have a 2014 Cervelo R5 in black matte.
I'm removing the Cervelo label from top tube at seat tube junction and gone through the finish to bare carbon.
I would like to refinish these area to match rest of the bike. I tried matte/flat black and that doesn't match the factory finish. I also tried matte clear over bare carbon and that's not it either. Does anyone know what the best way match this finish?

Thanks
Erick

Try the matte clear over the matte black? That might knock the black back a bit more.

I looked to try painting.
I 've used it in several ways, unfortunately colors did not match.
I hope things work out to match the colors.

I contact Cervelo customer support regarding R5 paint. Cervelo frames are painted with Y.S. Paint and according to Cervelo the paint code for 2014 R5 is YS-941.
Only problem is that over at Y.S. paint site they list YS-941 as satin army green, not even close to matte black. I need to contact Cervelo again maybe some confusion or typo or Y.S. changed there paint codes.
