Body Paint


I have a 2004 GT and I've dropped my bike. Any suggestion on a body shop other than the dealer, where I can have it painted.

Body shop

Any good body shop should be able to paint your bike.
They most likly will need the paint code # so they can match you up, unless your getting the whole thing done then you can go with whatever you want.
Don't think just because they don't have a large computer paint mixing system that they are not good. Look at their work, the human eye can pick up over 10K colors and shades where, even good cameras limit out, at about 4K.

I had a bike fall off the sidestand once . . . non-moving. Comprehensive with Progressive covered it with new tupperware. No increase to insurance . . . consider 'Act of God'.
