If I get bored, I may want to respray my Swing when I get it, but I was curious if there was a site somewhere that sold replacement unpainted or otherwise body panels, that way if I get OCD I can switch out for a different colour scheme. Razz Anyone know of a place or how much they'd cost?

I replaced almost every piece of painted plastic on my wife's bike and 3 pieces on mine. I ordered through Service Honda, www.servicehonda.com, they had the best prices (when I did my comparison). They were also great to interact with and provided excellent customer service.

Two other options: Ride Now & Honda Direct

Dale, If you look on this Forum you will not my Swing was knocked over and damaged all of the composit parts on the left side. They will have to be replaced. I got an estimate from my local Honda dealer on time involved at $60 an hour and it came to under $200. They figured under 4 hours to replace the parts. They do come pre-painted Titanium Metallic so just a matter of exchanging parts. I do not think they estimated the time right as it takes me considerable time just to replace the W/S. etc. I do have Dennis' driving lights and a T-Box to replace also. What do you think?

I've not had every part off my bike yet, but I can take the front cowl off and reinstall it in under an hour. 4 hours seems reasonable.

Stay tuned this winter, I'm thinking of vinyl wrapping my scoot. 2003 model with 40k miles is showing signs of wear on the paint

I'd recommend a mortuary for the body parts, and TENA for Men for your incontinence problems. Wink

The Insurance co gave me a check for 2353.51 dollars for the damage when it was knocked over. The composit panels don't take much abuse. It is a 2005 with 37,400 smiles on it and it never had a scratch on it. Was in excellent condition. I am debating on whether I will spend the money on it or not. What is everyone's opinion? Is it worth it or should I keep the money toward a newer replacement...

Panels are not hard to replace and not all that much money. You get to learn how take the part off with the old panel, so the new one goes back on easier. I would fix it.  I would fix my Wing if it needed some new panels. Have you looked up how much it would cost for the parts you need?
