Anyone ever touch up their Givi engine guards? If so, what paint was used that matches the black powder coat? Thanks!!

Satin-finish Rustoleum black.
I used this too. I gave it a coat of the Rustoleum high temp BBQ paint first, to help combat any rust (stupid mild steel), before using the satin. I would have stayed with just the high temp paint, but it comes off way too easy. It doesn't wear as well. Overall, it turned out well.

My brothers engine guards had paint damage when he bought his Wee. He removed them, sanded and used rattle can truck bed liner on them, turned out great.

+1 Truck bed liner

I strongly secnd the spray on truck bed liner. Covers all the scratches, prevents new ones, looks great color wise, and extremely forgiving to apply. More coats = more texture, and they dry very fast.

I painted mine last fall and liked it so much, I started thinking what else could paint. Ended up painting some newly fabbed aux light brackets as well, and again, couldn't be happier with the results!

I'm actuallu thinking of painting a recently aquired mnt bike all in bed liner. Good stuff.

givi black touchup

UK Hammerite Black Satin is a good match also good for the black parts on the bike swingarm and frame. If you take the Givi's through winter you will probably need a complete repaint, they rust like hell. Typical Italian quality of the 60's and it hasnt changed. I will go for the German version in future with powdercoat.
