Matte panel repair
I'm hoping someone can share some wisdom regarding panel repair, specifically to the candy orange matte finish on my V650. Long story short, the bike was struck on and just above the headlight, taking a gouge out of the plastic fairing and putting a deep scratch up the headlight.
From my understanding of matte finishes and what reading I've done tonight, I'm gathering it would be a challenge to repair the gash and achieve a uniform, as-new finish? If replacing it is the only option, any advice on the best place to source the parts would be great.
As for the headlight, I'm sure that will simply need replacing.
Thanks in advance
