Satin Paintwork
« on: July 31, 2021, 12:40:55 PM »
Hi Guys,. I had a 0mph drop on the drive this morning. Indicator and handguard easily replaced. Engine bars will be fetched off then repainted, if that looks naff then an upgrade is on the cards for these - probably sw motech.

However I have a small scratch on the fairing, if the bike wasn't pretty much immaculate I wouldn't bother. If it was normal paint I'm pretty sure I could get it looking almost back to normal with some cutting compound. However it is the satin marine colour paint and I'm really not sure if the cutting compound would 'gloss it'. Other question I suppose then is - does anyone know a 'chips away' type person in the west midlands that can do satin paint?

Tiger 800xca 2018, Marine colour.

Many thanks guys.

Bit of an update if anyone is interested - turns out the fairing I have scratched is only 47.47 from fowler's painted with decal (I believe as it says 'as it would be from factory') - gobsmacked! Any other bike I've owned does not have one single fairing part below 200 and that's without paint.

Only problem now is finding the paint code - but feeling a little happier.
