I was wondering if anyone knew the color code or exact name of the silver paint on the exhaust shields. I hit something that fell off a truck in front of me that left some scratches. No other damage, thank goodness!
I opted for bed lining on mine. Never a scar or a scuff, and touch ups are easy. Just an option to consider. As a side note, I did the same thing on my front lower cowl. The chrome on the plastic was starting to peel and was quite dinged up. I could have replaced it for $107, but opted to make it match the bike for about $8. Some prep required, but the results are great and very durable.
DupliColor #BFM0225 Medium Charcoal Metallic (1B) is a replacement for their DSFM225 and is OEM color used by Ford. I took one of the toe warmer doors with me to the car guy store to ensure a good match and found this was pretty decent and when primed with their Scratch Filler primer and a bit of Scotch Brite maroon for prep then covered with their clear coat, it turned out beautifully. Like others, I suspect I'll wait until the season is over then do the bug collector cowl. Just thought I'd throw the numbers out their so you don't have to spend $35/can for paint from the UK.
