side cover paint

Does anyone know where or what kind of paint I can use on my side covers. The black and red is chipping off.

Blessings!
Richard

Grace and Peace to you!

As long as you sand and prime (plastic primer) you can use just about anything.

I've used regular primer on the plastic side cases and they turned out fine

that shouldn't matter - surface is surface just prepare it correctly with sanding to accept the new paint. This I know alot about in the way I have designed my bike. Just prep the area correctly and paint will bond - right down to the pleather seat if need be.
