ColorRite review from first time user

I recently purchased a dedicated track bike from another forum member that had some road rash on the right side track fairing:

[IMG][/IMG]


The OCD in me had to do something about this but my options were pretty limited due to my own ignorance in not knowing how to fix it. To the forums and interwebs I went. Repair shops wanted half the value of just buying new ones and just about every video I found on how to "properly" fix this looked way too intensive and time consuming as well as partially expensive for me to get into. After a few weeks of about just saying fuck it and ordering a new fairing set I came across the website for ColorRite and I'm glad I did. You can order the paint to match what ever color you have, for me it was Kawi 777. The kit was 80 bucks and came with different types of sand paper, primer in a rattle can, paint in a rattle can, and clear coat in a rattle can. Sanded my ass off and actually needed to buy some more to get the texture smooth. I wasnt to worried about the actual physical damage the fairing had on it as I would live with it. After sanding it took 2 coats of primer. 3 coats of paint to get it to match my color, and 2 clear coats. For 80 bucks and the experience, not to mention their how to videos on youtube, I really just couldn't be happier with the results. I will probably get another set all together once I get back from my deployment next year but to anyone going through what I did and is OCD I cant recommend this company and their product enough. THey also have different kits from touch up pens all the way up and their very easy to understand instructions really made the world of difference in this learning experience.

After 2 coats of primer:




2nd coat of paint drying before 3rd:


Final product:





In summery: ColorRite is a pretty damn good, cheap product comparatively, and I still suck at sanding and repairing fairings but I can live with this.

Glad you're happy with the results.... can't see the photos, but that's okay too.

Thank you for your service, and wishing you a safe deployment.

"Basic stuff fellas. Use your head for something other than to break your next fall."

"There's this adage that we have 2 ears and one mouth so we should listen twice as much as we talk. Unfortunately with the Internet people have taken this old adage and turned it around. They have two eyes and 10 fingers so they think they need to post 5 times as much as they read. And since they have 10 fingers and one brain, they only have to think 10% of the time! "
