Belly Pan Painting?

Picked up an Ermax belly pan for my 919. Should be a fun project for the off-season. I am most likely going to go with Color Rite to match the Candy Glory Red of my 2007. Has anyone had any experience with using the complete aerosol repair package?

ALSO has anyone had experience painting an Ermax belly pan? It came it two pieces and am not sure if I should paint the halves separately and then assemble after painting or assemble first, then paint.

Normally, you want to paint it first and then paint. It'll allow for a better look... Multiple layers ftw.

Well, I ordered the Color Rite base coat and aerosol repair package which comes with primer, color coat, and clear coat, as well as some little things like various grits of sandpaper, a tack cloth, and a fine cut polishing compound for final polishing.

I will try to remember to take some photos of the pan as soon as I can.

Here's a photo which I originally found on the wrist twisters forum a while back. Not my bike, but the same belly pan I will be painting.

Needs more black parts and a USD conversion. Then it would be almost perfect.

Just to point out... the photo is not my bike. Just a photo with the belly pan I am painting already installed.

I would paint them separated. I would primer it first to find flat spots then soft sand with water

Was a bit pricey after the currency change and $35 shipping, but I haven't been able to find a belly pan that I like nearly as close to as much and these guys had it for my model for the most reasonable price.

I actually just got an email that the Color Rite products I ordered were delivered just now, so this weekend begins a nice project. I will be sure to post photos this time. And I'll be sure to take some photos of my actual bike with it installed.

After fiddling with the pan together, I think you are right. I am going to paint it separated and then assemble after. Should make getting a nice even coat of primer, base, color, and clear, instead of fumbling around with a cumbersome part.
