Yeah, I did see that video, but he just kind of skipped around a bit. Was more curious to see if there was a specific grit of sandpaper used, or he used machinery to do it because I can see it sanded and know he used Colorrite to match. Thanks for the help, and I know there is just specific paint for plastic, so I assume you would need to sand it down anyway in order to take even 1 coat of paint.Here is someone who did it (not me although my bike is the same color) --
Unfortunately the area around the ignition switch has damaged paint caused by a 2nd key or key fob of a previous owner so I am going to need to sand and primer. Color Rite is expensive and shipping to Canada is a hassle and expensive.It's already been primed and painted at the factory. 600/1000 grit wet sand lightly to remove wax/etc and apply this coats of paint and clear coat.
No "special plastic paint" needed or should be used. Colorite would be fine as would autobody types.
Some years ago one of the local auto parts stores would scan/match auto body paint (since you have the paint code they should have the formula) and put "real" auto body paint in a generic aresol spray can. It was good stuff and a great nozzle system. Did some hood touch-up on an old Suburban. Worked good.Unfortunately the area around the ignition switch has damaged paint caused by a 2nd key or key fob of a previous owner so I am going to need to sand and primer.

I am going to try and get a decent match for the Honda Flared Red in Dupli Colour at the local store, when the restrictions get lifted and I can go in the store !
You mean in the middle of summer while Wing Ding and every other rally is going on? I cant imagine why it took at little while. Its not like a motorcycle vendor would be busy during those months.If you do WingBling I hope hes gotten better at his delivery times. I purchased a nav dash from him some years ago in July. I received it in October. He had nothing to say about why it took so long. That soured me on purchasing more from him.
He was only the salesman at the time he had his wife and another crew doing the work. If you want to blame Wing Ding and other venues for his issues go ahead all it shows to me as to how long it took for me and a few other friends to get our parts is that he doesnt know how to run his business. Six weeks maybe 2 months but I orderd the dash the 1st week of July,I received it at the end of October basically at the end of riding season. And to top it off one of the speaker grills the carbon fiber coloring pattern didnt follow the dash pattern like the other side. I wouldnt do business again with him.You mean in the middle of summer while Wing Ding and every other rally is going on? I cant imagine why it took at little while.
