I'm looking to get the forged bar (plastic chrome) caps painted pearl white to match my 2012 CCT. Before soliciting the local shops I thought I'd try to support a fellow Victory enthusiast. Please let me know if you're a painter who can get these done.

I read on another thread the pearl white may be a match for a 2010 Mazda 3. Anyone know if this is true?

Get in touch with member Goody2667. He has done quite a bit of painting for members here including myself.

Those are relatively small parts. You may be able to paint them yourself using OEM rattle can paint.

I sent out my black KewlMetal fork guards a year or so ago, for Goody to paint. Reasonable pricing, and a perfect match to the sparkly stock sunset red paint.

You are better off calling or texting Goody... He isn't on here regularly. He does great work, highly recommended! He painted my chin spoiler.

Man, it seems you have everyone's number today.

BTW, Ken and I had lunch at the Royal Diner in Brattleboro on Monday, on the way to Loudon. I would've let you know, but it was a last-minute decision.

For small parts the Victory or ColorRite "rattle can" paints properly applied will do a very good job. Note I BOLDED "properly".

As an FYI, I was (in a former life so to speak) an auto body shop owner/operator and have done lot's of painting including rattle can stuff and one can produce a "professional" looking result when done PROPERLY on SMALLER PARTS.

I agree , I use the Pure Polaris paint in the rattle can , has been beautiful so far and I use the Polaris flat clear over it . I couldn't be happier with the results .

Where or how would I go about finding the color and finish for the forks of my Vegas? The previous owner marred them up a bit transporting the bike somewhere. Would love to be able to make it right. I find the color P-266 Victory Cruiser Black but the forks are not shiny like the tank and such. I guess it's satin?

you might need a "clear" coat wherever you buy pain from see if they have a 2 part epoxy clear. NAPA sells it

If you buy and use a 2-part paint it's a great idea to wear a breathing mask as it's very hazardous to the lungs.
As mentioned above brilliant results can be achieved from a spray can provided the directions are strictly followed.
Best leave 2-pac to the experts.

I painted the chin fairings last winter. The clear I used wasn't gloss enough and never really matched, plus it hasn't held up very well. There are some deep scratches and pocks in the finish. Since I'm keeping the XC they need a redo and there is a few small love marks elsewhere on the bike I want to take care of.
I'm ordering this kit.
