Default Anyone ever had their entire XC painted?

I'm looking to change mine from red (2012) to white. Just a plain bright flat white.

I'm just looking for what you paid and whether you found it worth it.

I was oolong at doing the same thing. However, I want to go to the bright red. I wish mine was white so we could just trade tins.

Instead of asking us. You should hop on the bike and ride around to some paint shops.
A good paint job will coast guessing now 3 grand or more

Bigger job going from Red to white.
Because of the strong pigments in red it'll bleed and give you a pretty pink bike.
Unless you kill the red with a coat of black first.
That's why repair shops hate getting red used replacement panels for cars.
A bit more work involved.
Just so you're aware.

Just now wondering.........would a good primer over the red paint be a sufficient cover? I had a red fairing covered with a primer painted to a titanium metallic gloss ..........IMHO it covers great.

That should work just fine. Not rattlecan primer but regular primer sprayed on with a gun. Much less expensive than black paint.

An entire XC is quite a bit of coverage area with the fairing and bags. The rear fender is kinda big too.

If I were to go through all that trouble though I would at least make it a two tone or put some stripes in it to break up the solid color; regardless of what that color might be.

Takes less paint to cover gray primer as a posed to black.
