to do a total repaint is much more involved than trying to match the places that need to be painted, as you know. The problem is they are not matching the new paint very well to the original. Granted it's a 16 year old paint job but that problem is now there problem. They are saying "you can barely tell the difference." Problem being, there is a difference and I'm supposed to be ok with that. I don't think so. Currently in the process of trying to get it worked out. If only they would have been more careful when moving bikes around. We shall see.Does that mean they are fighting in hopes of not doing a total paint job or do you not want one?
I'm doing well John, and you? I'm still working 3 sometimes 4 days a week, thankfully my work has not been affected by this madness. Hoping it will soon run its course and get back to normal. I'm not participating. I'm doing what I always do. Can't watch was is called "news" because that doesn't exist anymore. Sure I stay informed just not from the MSM. I have a feeling you have your own sources as well. Things are not going well for my bike in the Harley shop. I'm not happy with their color match and that is causing a few people to be uncomfortable. But I'm not letting it slide...

Actually I am not paying them. They damaged the bike while in storage at the dealership. Broken parts have been replaced no problem but paint if not so good. I may not mind so much if it were a spot on the fender that didn't match the tank. But it is the tank itself and instead of stripping the tank and repainting it they are trying to spot paint it. Ain't happening."am I paying you for excuses or am I paying you for results?" But I guess you're not paying them then, huh.
In the case of old bikes, I tend to think a full respray is easier than trying to match a color faded bike, especially since areas fade differently. If the frame needs to be sprayed too that really complicates things. With an old bike, places around here will have their insurance declare the bike a loss and pay you the value if you throw a stink about it because it's not worth it to them.
Good luck, hope it turns out for the best.
