L&M Chin Scoop Paint Prep

3434 Views 17 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  bozzly
So I recieved my Chin Scoop today from L&M. I am interested in painting it to match the Frame or something close. I purchased a can of Duplicolor Low Gloss Black Engine Enamel. Do I need to sand the Chin Scoop first or can I just paint a couple of coats of this paint and be done with it?

Also I recieved a little bottle of something called accellerator, anyone know what I would be using this for?

Okay, on a related subject to this. To paint or not to paint??? Can we get some feedback from those that have have the radiator scoop for a while. If you painted, how well is it holding up to road debris?
I used the Rust-Oleum Textured Flat Black on my Reaper Front Fender for a couple months and it's holding up well.... I used the same thing to paint my chin scoop and given it's only been a day I'm sure it will b the same.... As far as prep work I just used a degreaser to clean it off then put 2 coats for now.... As soon as I find a good gloss black then I will be re-painting for sure!
