am painting the seat plastics right now....
Flat back....
Guess i moved a bit taking the pic.....
OOOOooooWell....



I had to repair one side....cracked from weight of saddlebags.
I reinforced-it with plastic weld/fiberglass cloth n a 1/8" welding rod cut to a length as needed put under the fiberglass cloth.
I reinforced the other side as well.
Sanded lightly..wiped clean..Primed with primer 4 plastic.
Krylon plastic paint flat black first coat.
I'll do a few more coats then 2 coats clear.
Good enough for this stuff....
I'll be scratching it again anyway putting saddlebags on n off...

i hope someone can reply with some useful info...but best bet may be to get quotes from local shops.
My limited results so far is around 350 at a body repair shop... to around 1200 at a motorcycle custom paint shop...but these are rough estimated without them seeing the bike.
Do you have an air compressor?

They are a great investment. Spray can stuff lacks durability. Paint gotta be catalyzed to hold up. Painting is not hard, just time consuming.
