Side Covers

So, I bought a couple of sets of side covers ($22 each set) to experiment with. Put a decal on one set and spray painted the other set red.

regular spray paint with a spearate primer coat. The right side came out like crap but the left side is smooth as silk.

i think i like that enough to do it on mine. debating if i should use plasti dip in case i'm not thrilled i can pull it off. closest color seems to be gun metal. or should I just go for a silver in spray paint...

Thatís exactly why I bought an extra set. If it gets ruined itís no big deal.

Thanks, that is where I ordered mine. Also, I bought a set at the dealer that had to be ordered. They were $12 each but there was no shipping charge and they were received at the dealer the next day - Babbits charged $9.95 for shipping so it was basically the same price.
