More paint

Base coat/clear coat was what I found for my 15 Gunner. I wanted a Judge fender on the Gunner, a bit longer, which was the reason for the project. My Victory shop manual had a paint color code # for most of the colors other than the one for my bike, so I bought the paint from a Vic dealer - $$$ - rattle cans. The color coat went on well enough, but the flat clear coat didn't work out. My understanding was that the flat clear coat dried hard, but mine actually shrunk and cracked, something I have never seen before. I'm no painter so maybe I messed up. Either way, I now have a color # and can drop the thing off at a real painter's shop - after some more time and a bit of sanding.

Good luck with the project.

Happy holidays with a new year full of miles and smiles.
