Thread: Help with touch up on Harley Saddle bag

    Default Help with touch up on Harley Saddle bag

    Hey guys, Ive painted a few bikes and I have some bodywork experience (NOT A PRO), and I really need some good advice on this little mishap. I originally painted these bags about 6 months ago and I have about 8 ounces of base, pearl, and clear. Ive feathered the scratch out with 800 and the surrounding area with 1500. Here is where I need pro advice...
    1. Should I paint the whole thing or can this be blended? Its a tricoat pearl HD brand (colorite).

    2. Should I prime in this? Its over ABS plastic.

    Its a very small area to blend so I am worrying about overspray on the surrounding sides of the bag. I know I can tape it off but am worried about a line.
    Any ideas? 20180425_203404_resized.jpg

    You can use a light colored primer.
    Or you can use a white sealer (wet on wet)
