Default Painted my Chin Spoiler

Painted the outer sides of the spoiler and left the middle back. I like the color contrast but it obviously doesn't match perfectly ( pearl white vs. white ). I'm going to get the color code and have a local painter see if he can match. Would have taken the pics outside but it's been raining here all day.

Great Job all bike should be looking like your.

3M has a paint proctor film. Lot of body shops or specialty details do it. That would save you paint from rock and chips

Default Prep

Curious as to what prep work did you do for painting the spoiler? What work needs to be done for the center chin spoiler?

I think it looks great. Maybe the pictures don't show it we'll. sometimes the slight contrast offers just a enough difference for the Pearl to stand out.

All I did was clean it with alcohol, it's a rough texture so I'm not sure how'd you sand it even if you wanted to. As far as painting the middle part I didn't do that because the black exhaust shield ( through the cut out ) would still show through and I thought it would look funny.

I like the look. I am presently working with my painter and he was wondering how to prep the chin spoiler and mentioned texture might be an issue. You solved that for me with your pics and reply....... thanks!
