Default Trunk

Got my trunk yesterday. Did anyone else have poor paint on the mounts and brackets? Kind of disappointed in the quality of the paint. Trunk is OK though.

On the right side mount one of the nuts is very close to the saddlebag lid when shutting. I think this is going to end up chipping the lip of the saddlbag lid over time. Did anyone else notice one side being very close, almosting touching?

Looks like some careless handling of those parts during powder coating and elsewhere. Should probably just use some touch up paint and maybe some clear fingernail polish to seal it.

Looks like the very same place (first pic) mine was missing paint - was a bit of a headache getting it replaced with the correct one. Be sure and take off anything removable, I was sent back a bare support with no hardware on the incorrect one so I had to emphasize as much to the outfit I got it from when getting the right one sent back to me. You'll need a decent rivet gun if you don't already have one as mine didn't come assembled.

My bracket was fine, no missing or chipped powdercoat. I'd take it back and ask for another one. You paid good money for it, don't settle

I agree, for what these trunks cost, no way would I accept that condition yours came in

Honda East sent me a return label today. I am returning the brackets and mount.
