Adventures with Plastidip

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