I am also very interested in re-painting my Silverwing but dread taking the body parts off cause it is going to be a pain in the butt, I'm sure. Just taking off small parts to install the windshield or to change the air filter seems to be a challenge not to break tabs in the process. OH

Hello again Jose from Panama City.
I have had to paint the right side, front and through trial and error came up with a well done paint job. I did not change the color so that helped.
I believe the only place to buy all you need for the job except the sand paper, is www.colorrite.com It is very time consuming and removing all the toperwhere is a pain in the butt, because of all the different screws that go in different places and learning to repair the broken tabs in the inside, if you have any.
Once everything is off it might be a good time to install a loud horn.
Good luck and my the force be with you.alien beamed up

We have a store in town called "Wholesale Automotive," which has a camera they just put on the painted panel take a picture per say and it will give them an exact match for mixing the paint. I had a little chip so had them mix me some paint and it matches perfect.
I am going to need to do more than just a little now though because I went to a store this morning and was parked in the middle of a parking spot. A man was backing into pick up some salt. He said, "I did not see your bike parked there." Well to make a long story short, it laid my Swing over on the left side. Scratched the front left panel, broke the tabs etc. and the left rear panel is scratched pretty bad. I have a "Bestem" T-Box which it broke the mount pin off of the mounting bracket, and scratched up the T-box. I am sure it will just have to be replaced. I know the person pretty well that did it and he has insurance so hopefully I can get it fixed at no out of pocket money. Accidents do happen! I am glad I was not riding it when it happened. What can a person say, "pshaw!"

I have looked at all of the parts places I can find on the computer, but can not find how to purchase the tupper ware panels. Maybe someone on this Forum will be kind enough to point me in the right direction. It is a 2005 FS600 and I would need a front left panel, and left rear panel where the Key lock is. Thank you all!Smile

Something similiar happend to me.  Just for kicks I tried to fix it myself - crack reinforcement, body putty, sanding, can of primer, can of matching paint from local auto painting store - the whole bit.  When I was done it looked a mess. Guessing I need a lot more practice doing this - and a decent spray gun setup.  When I was done it was very functional - but you could see where the clack had been.  Eventually I sold that SWing - in part so I would not have to continually look at the (non) quality of my body repair.

I have GEICO insurance.  Tipovers are covered by Comprehensive - not Collision.   With Geico (guessing same with others) you can get low deductable Comprehensive (I think I have $100) for only a few bucks more than a $1000 deductable.   I have not had any tipovers with current SWing - but I know it could happen - and if it is a big tipover it could cost $500-$1000 to repair - so next tipover, I call Geico.
