Nice! What type of paint did you use?
IMO, the flat doesnt look ratty at all. I painted mine with flat black Krylon Fusion and it matches the other shield perfectly. It has been on there for about 7 monthes and still looks great.Looks great NF. I'd leave it like that. The satin is more easily cleanable than flat. I think the flat paint would look ratty.
Thanks! I have been thinking of doing mine with bedliner...any one have pictures of a maize colored 650 with the exhaust shield painted black? I thought I had one, but must not have saved it.Angrypeppers, I painted mine with Rustoleum Textured black paint. Sanded first with 400 grit wet/dry paper. This paint matches the lower guard perfectly. I left the chrome bolts for a little contrast. Looks great. Greg
The only aluminum part was the heel guard. The sprocket cover is plastic painted to look like part of the engine, I used cheap walmart paint. Neither side shows scuff marks after 400 miles.By the way, for those aluminum parts that you painted....what kind of paint did you use? I would think standard, spray can paint would wear off pretty quickly.
