I rattle canned my track fairings after repairing them. I used Rustoleum primer and paint for plastic without a clear coat on top. Two layers of primer and 3 layers of paint with dry time in between each coat. I was quite happy with the results, now time to add some decals.

Sanding and prep work was the largest determinant on the final outcome. Make sure you do a few rounds of sanding and even do a final layer of wet sanding if you wana get crazy. You also want to try and paint these inside if possible so that dust and other contaminants don't adhere to the wet paint.

Both my bikes were done with rattle cans, however I did buy better quality paint this time, not the stuff you get at any hardware store. I used Spray Max, which made a big difference especially for the clear coat.

I did minimal prepping too because I was lazy and I hate sanding.

Rattle Canned!

Next paint job will be much more professionally done. But it came out pretty good for what I spent. The ZX6R.com sticker and the Let's Ride stickers are under the clear coat even
