Givi Bags/Fusion Paint

My Givi V35 bags received some road rash and needs cosmetic help. Has anyone painted the bags using Krylon Fusion plastic paint ? My bags are basic black.

Well, anything looks better than Road Rash.

Follow the 95% prep time 5% painting time rule though, you don't want scratches showing through or dirt or grease causing the paint to flake off.

I've used the krylon fusion on the silver side covers on my 08, it has adhered well so far.

I painted some of the plastic parts of my truck. And i was told by a buddy of mine that works at a body shop to use "bumper paint." Clean and sand the surface REALLY GOOD and then spray on your paint. I did the grill of my Xterra which I beat on offroad all the time, and the paint still looks perfect.

The sanding should take care of the road rash. Can you post a before photo so we can see the rash you speak of?

I have the black Givi E21 bags, one with road rash. I was wondering if the scratches can be sanded then buffed and polished out? Has anyone tried this?
