Newbie and first improvement project

Hi Guys,

Just picked up an 07 GT and am really enjoying it. 500 miles within the 1st 24 hours of ownership.

Had a bad scratch on the top of one saddlebag. Grab rails were funky and the 49 ltr trunk had been dropped by the previous owner the first day of his ownership.

So, I scuffed everything up and masked it off after picking up a few cans of Krylon truck bed coating. Sprayed 3 coats and couldn't be happier with the results.

Total cost: 12 American bucks plus an hour or so in labor by the time I get it all back together.

When can I post pix?

Re: Newbie and first improvement project

Welcome to the BMW experience! Unless you are on the "witness protection list," how 'bout adding your location. There may be others near you that could enjoy your company on occasion. Although it is not required, it could be beneficial if you ever run into a situation needing hands on assistance from a knowledgeable Beemer Buddy.

I like your quick fix for the cosmetics. Not only practical and inexpensive, but probably durable as well. Hope you enjoy many miles of smiles on your BMW. I think there's a minimum number of posts you have to accumulate before you are allowed to post pictures. (10 posts I think?), but surf the titles and post your thoughts & experiences and it shouldn't take long to qualify enough posts to allow pictures.

Never declare a cherished memory as "the best day of my life"...it will forever diminish the possibility for "Tomorrow" being the "Best Day!"
