Gonna get the inner fairings painted on my GF's Street Glide (Big Blue Pearl) and my Roadie (Cool Blue Pearl). We are also having her king tour-pak done to match her bike. We kept it when she sold her Road King.
A friend has a custom bike shop and he can work us into the schedule yet this year.

Her inner and tour pak will be done in BBP. I am going to have mine done as a fade from CBP at the top into black at the bottom.

Can't wait to get them done. Only downside is that he'll need the bikes for a week - but they'll do the removal and re-installs.

Like I told you. What I said. Steal your face right off your head.

This guy just opened a Facebook page and will install a painted inner fairing for $475. He is located in Jacksonville but will travel if there are enough customers lined up in a specific area to knock them out at once. If you want to do the install yourself knock $75 off the price.

Check into (FBI) for painted inner fairings. The last I knew Fatbaggers has the FLTR painted inner fairing for $500 it is a exchange program so you will have to return your old inner or pay the core charge if you keep your inner. I been to Fatbaggers and from what I understand the owner of FBI owns the HD dealership next door so he has access to all HD paint colors, I got my candy red sunglo painted inner from FBI and that is a 3 part paint and it was a perfect match. Other then that take your inner to a local painter and you should pay somewhere around $300 to $350 for the inner to be painted. The good thing about FBI is that you don't have much down time because when you get the painted inner you can swap out the inner fairing in a day and be back on the road, taking the inner to a painter it may take a week or two to get your inner back. By the way do the removal and installation yourself and save some bucks it is a easy job it just take some time.

Just check FBI web site and the painted inner fairing list for $959.95 this includes the core charge of $460.00 when you return your inner fairing your $460.00 will be refunded to you so your total cost comes to $499.95. There may be a additional charge for some colors so you would need to contact them if your color is not listed.

08 FLTR candy red sunglo,with 2015 103 HO, V&H Dresser Duals with Monster Rounds, Power Vision tuner, Willy Shiny Wheels and Forks and a bunch of other stuff.

Not to knock FBI, I have bought many parts from them over the years with great success......but this year I ordered there dash and since its a vivid black bike I figured I'd just have them paint it, vivid black cant be hard to match, right? Well I'd didn't match, it was black but not vivid black that's for sure. I called and emailed without getting a response to the problem, literally 7 months later and I've never heard a word from them on it.........

Just good for thought, I've learned my lesson. If I buy something pre painted it will come from the MoCo or I pay for it once I see it in person. Other than that I'll just have my painter paint it
