Default Any Paint Shops in IL that can fix a matte finish scratch?

Hi,

So my Highball arrived from an out of state dealer (not Victory) with a scratch on the tank.

I contacted the dealer and they are willing to pay to get it fixed...pretty cool of them.

Any recommended paint shop in IL that can fix a black matte finish?

THANKS!!

As far as I am aware, you cannot "fix" or remove scratches on matte finish paint, so you're looking at having the tank repainted.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Thanks, I was afraid that was going to be the answerÖ.

I called 3 Victory dealerships and none were able to help, and/or provide a number to a paint shop that could help.

I called a number of automotive body shops today, and all mentioned that theyíd have to see it in person (I can understand that).

I had one person ask if itís powder coated or not. He indicated if itís powder coated, he canít help me.

Does anyone have the details behind the matte paint that Victory uses?

I'd like to have the dealership pay to get fixed, but I'm running out of energy on this...I attached a picture of it (it's not minor to me)

THANKS

I do plenty of paint work and alot of paint shops will tell you that matte black and flat black are normally something they hate to try to fix or match. As for fixing that, the only fix would be to repaint the tank since you cant wet sand blend and buff a matte finish due to the buffing process will shine the finish up.
You are probably better off telling that dealer ship to just order you a new tank from victory that is already painted. It will most likely end up coming out around the same price if you find someone to repaint it.
Good luck!!
If you where alittle closer i would say bring it on over and we can get you fixed up.
