I bought my XC with 6k miles on it in May 2014...I'm now approaching 34k miles and it needs some love. I bought a Touch-Up Direct Platinum paint kit
and I'm going to work....
The original owner dinged the right bag in two spots and did some gobbed on touch up repair. I color matched chin fairings in 2014 but the clear I used sucked, it did not match or protect the paint, plus something took a gouge out behind the brake res. On a trip to Lake George, NY the right side panel came loose and got caught in the the belt. That took a chunk out and caused scratches/gouges all over the panel. Sand some how got between the seat and foot of the gas tank and its scratched to hell in there(not visible...but I know its there) and there is a small chip on the tip of the front fender.
Here's are the "before" pics.
-beat up chin
-bad bag repair
-damaged rt. side panel(the cut out is staying but I'm removing the stickers, repairing the gouges and making it nice, nice
