« on: 10 February, 2019, 12:44:56 AM »
How many out there have painted to color match their chin fairing?

I haven't seen many painted belly pans myself (not to say owners don't)
Its an area that's gets a fair amount of abuse from the weather and crap from the road  :004:
Would wrapping it be better than painting if you went down that road  :187:

I agree with Paullie, it'd soon look a shot-blasted mess. Just imo of course. Each to their own.

The later Sport  3 piece bellypan is painted on the sides, the middle section is a different material, almost rubber like. Maybe paint it and then mask off and  use a matt black underbody paint for the central bit.

I go with wrap if a color change is a goal. I've done it with a few pannier inserts and it is impossible to see the difference. What color is on the agenda?

My white '07 tiger had a white belly pan. It was on there when I bought it along with matching blue triumph text stickers on each side. I thought it looked quite good. When you got closer you could see it was a grubby white from all the road crap. I always tried to clean it but could never get it back to near new.
