Color match inner fairing. Would.you?

Spend the money for a Black Quartz inner even if your's was a special and vivid black? I hate the swirls and spider lines already.

I'm thinking about doing it at Bike week with the Fairing Exchange.

What's your thoughts. I mean. When the sun hits that paint. It really pops. And you know it's not just a black bike.

Color match inner faring would you

I have a road glide special so it came with the vivid black painted inner faring. I personally really like it.

Your bike is BQ but your inner is Vivid? Yeah, that would drive me nuts. Get it done.

But your bike is Vivid Black. So it matches.

Ya. All the specials are vied black. No matter the color of the bike.

I'll email them today. See what the cost is. I get to Gettysburg bike week usually a day early. The vendors open on Thursday morning. I just want to make sure the do the speedo bezel and the other covers. The front small cowl under the fairing is BQ as are my Cowbells. I had them painted when I did the front end.

Could the metal flake in the BQ cause an undesired effect with the sun? My paint set has a black metallic, but not as obvious as the BQ. I'm fine with the inner fairing remaining slightly off.

I would not do my Sedona Orange, but would do Vivid Black. I've seen several that have been Hydro-Dipped & they look good.

I believe the fairing exchange is $699

The hydrodipped may solve the scratching/hazing etc...

Maybe go to an offset color like the color of your pinstripes? Lighter colors dont show as much..

If you love your freedom, thank a Vet!!

Thanks. Now it's a wait. They have the extensions in Stock. But none in the BQ. He said he'll have them painted up and shipped by Monday. So next weekend I'll have them on. I want to do the inner. But I was technically done for the year. Lol.
