Just pulled the trigger on a low and mean radiator cover. It comes unpainted and as they put it " gel coat " . Anyone have any suggestions on primer, sanding, or paint techniques? Would a 15 dollars can of spray paint do the job ? Thanks for your advice.

I bought a can of krylon fusion. Supposedly the best paint, will stick to almost anything. I will sand the gel finish with 400 grit paper . Then top coat it with krylon clear gloss after painting it. If the color match is not what I want then I will go back and finish with a black color to match the frame. I hope not, because I'd like to have the radiator cover stand out . We'll see what happens. I'll keep you all posted

Yep, easy to do. I use Dominion Truck Bedliner on most of my bike painted parts. The stuff requires virtually no prep (quick run over with a scotch pad) and it is durable and tough as nails. Looks like Harley Crinkle Coat when done.

Nope. It's solid as regular paint and goes on thin, not clumpy.

Here is my writeup with all the details on the Triumph forum...
