|Thanks, guys. I did a web search, and didn't find anything specifically designated for this use. Seems like Loctite blue comes up quite a bit. Guess I'll give that a shot.|
Ah, el SID, you remembered the tank!
I dropped off the tank and the tail cowl piece that also had some scratches. The body shop hooked me up with their best painter, and said I could work out a deal with him. I got the feeling that they pretty much let him do side work for cash as long as he got his normal insurance work done. He's painted Harley tanks for customers, and I gotta say that this guy went to the mat for me. He tried his best, but couldn't get a match to the OEM candy blue that he liked. So he did some investigating and found that PPG has a color formula in a non-candy that is the closest base/clear to the OEM color. He showed me a sample spray-out of the color, and it looked great. He said he could repaint the tank and tail in the factory three-stage candy color, but the materials alone would cost way more than he had quoted me for the whole job. For just a little more than he quoted for the touch-up, he painted all of my tins in the non-candy matching color. I took a look at the finished tins yesterday, and they are show quality. I drove my cage today so I can pick up all of the tins at lunch. Can't wait to show her off at the local Saturday morning meet-up when she's back together.
