Touch up paint for GIVI engine guards?

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

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.

+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.
