Adventures with Plastidip

Let’s have some fun with the silver accent trim on the front of the 1200gs with Plastidip.

Before:

2008 1200gs before Plastidip

2008 1200gs side view

After:

2008 1200gs with Plastidip

Let's call it the "Double Black"

Ignore the pannier tape, of course, just playing with the front trim here. Could be a keeper.

  • Trim panels are easily removed via torx screwdriver
  • Plastidip available from local hardware store…$6/can.
  • 3 coats, sprayed evenly, 30 minutes apart.
  • Let dry 8 hours. Re-install to bike.
  • Tear it all off if you don’t like the looks.
