Pin striping

Postby Darkwarrior75 » Mon Oct 01, 2012 5:56 am



Hey there folks. Does anyone know the easiest way to redo the pin stoping on the saddlebag lids? It seems to be clear coated over and I don't want to mess up the paint. Should I just leave the old stripe there and go over top of it?

If you don't want to mess up the paint, then the easiest way would be to just put new on top of the old. This is, however, definitely not the best way, as you are going to be getting even more of a raised stripe than you have now, and if you clear coat over it, you will need to at least scuff the paint that is there now. If you do not clear coat over it, then it is in danger of being rubbed off.

If it was me - I would either just leave it alone, or do it right and remove the old, clean it up, and put new followed by clear coat.

But this is all just an opinion.

It's a good opinion though. Do it right or don't do it at all. After all its a Goldwing, not a Schwinn. Thanks.
