So I have minor rash on my mid fairing and I plan to attempt to paint it myself. I am getting a can of 06 silver from colorite.com and a can of clean coat. (I know silver is one of the hardest colors to match)

Could someone with experience list the steps I will need to complete as far as sanding and what order to do things. I know I need to sand before putting the silver coat down then let it dry and do the clear coat. Should there be a wet sanding step somewhere in there and what grit?

If it comes out dissatisfactory I will take it to a shop to get painted but figured I could try to save myself some money.

Thanks

just a tip, wetsanding takes extreme tallent. if you've never done it before, i personally wouldn't try it out on my own bike...but usually 2-3k grit works best
