Some Candy Orange Paint Damage.

I noticed a small chip today about the size of a pea on the inside of my saddlebag lid. Looks like the lid has been making contact with the front screw that secures the 4 point docking hardware to fender when I open/close the bag. It's doing it on both sides but it's worse on the right. Never had the docking hardware before so never bothered to look. Anyway, the chip is down to the metal so what is the best way to cover that up? I see Candy Orange touch-up on the web both in small bottles and also in a touch-up pen. Do I also need a bottle of clear coat to go over it? Will the pen method be good enough? Appreciate advise on fixing this as I don't know anything about paint ! Thanks for any advise..

OK, size of a pea ... and it's on the inside of the bag lid?

Geeze, and my wife thinks I'm anal about my bike!

Down to the metal?? on the lid?

I have seen that same rub mark on quite a few of the bikes with the docking hardware, I just looked at my bike and it the same way, but on black its tough to notice.

If you touch it up it will just rub again unless you put a piece of thick clear vinyl sheeting on the area and be more careful when opening/closing the lid as it goes past the hardware.

It's not about being anal, it's about fixing it before it starts to rust and becomes a bigger problem..

First of all I was just teasing you, no need to get fired up. Save the hostility for that other HD Forum site.

Second, I guess we'll need a photo to figure out what you're talking about when you say it's down to the metal? The bags and lids are plastic not metal, so they're not likely to rust. I'd go check it out on my bike to try to figure out what you're talking about but it's mothballed for the winter.

I'm not fired up at you, hell I would agree that I'm somewhat anal about the bike ! Well if the lids aren't metal I guess they won't rust ! Looks like it's down to the plastic then. Here's a pic so you can see what I mean..

OK, now I understand where you're talking about. When you first said "the inside of my saddlebag lid", I thought you literally meant INSIDE the lid, which is why I made the anal comment. Maybe, as Roadhawg suggested, a piece of clear vinyl over the offending fastener ... or a small piece of felt glued to it. Now you got me wondering if my lids have similar scuffing in that spot.
