Paint protection methods?

Recommended Posts

GreatDistances

Hey all, I've seen numerous posts with T7 owners noting damage to the finish of the rear plastics from luggage, and was wondering:  what sort of methods / supplies are you using to protect the plastics so you don't suffer the same fate?
 

Thanks in advance!

Just some clear 3m vinyl tape works great. Lay it on, cut to fit and when you're done with your trip and take your bags off it peals off and the plastic looks good as new. Did a couple thousand miles of touring and off-road with my KTM 690 Enduro and Mosko Moto Reckless 80 and after each trip the vinyl was very very scratched up but peeling it off and the plastic looked new under it. 

 

Here's what I picked up and it worked great.

3M Scotchgard Paint Protection Film protects the leading edge of your vehicle with the application of a thin and virtually undetectable clear urethane film. You get maximum coverage on the most chip prone areas, such as the hood, mirrors, fenders and bumper.

While nowhere near as good as 3M, I found a super budget material stuff made of clear vinyl material on ebay. I'll see if it ends up being worth my $19!

I'm definitely considering these side racks.  I'm running the B&B Off-Road compact rear rack, am wondering if the AdventureSpec side racks would be compatible.

I picked up these and love it. 

Kind of spendy but already cut to shape and size and pretty thick!

Ah cool!  I'm nowhere near as crafty as some of the other people on this forum so easy solutions like these are definitely appealing to me.  Thanks Nelson!
