Touch up paint for grab rail
« on: August 22, 2013, 08:59:06 PM »
I managed to gouge the grab rail.  Any idea of the color and source of touch up paint for this part?

Thanks in advance!

No but I need some for both the grab rails and bars (key scratches).

Why not start at your Trophy retailer/supplier?

Your right!  Sorry, the grab rails are body color on my other bike!  Still, it was it only place I could find Lunar Silver touch up paint. The closest thing I can think of for you is Argent wheel paint. I've seen it before; try  www.eastwood.com.  Best of luck!

You may find that the grab rails as with the frame are powder coated. I had some scuff marks on the frame side gear lever side.  I did manage to get a very good match from a motor parts retailer  (in the UK halfords)

prepared it properly and re sprayed. then I made the film protectors for both sides.

I would be tempted to spray the damaged area indstead of touch up. As any touch up om metallic paint will be layed in a different direction to the spray and it will stand out.
