Dave, check out the other one I put up, actually raises up for extra storage if needed. I like the one you put up too!
Purchased another fender, had Painter Kitty Hair it in... and apply his magic to it... http://www.furyforums.com/forum/fury-diy-area/2457-diy-how-paint.html then Uptown Cycles did the rest...What does everyone use to cover up the hole left by the backseat?
Thanks Snuff, much appreciated. Sounds like a logical explanation.I would say if you don't wax it and you leave them on for months on end then you'd probably see rings but if it is just for a ride and you remove it I'd say you'll be fine. Doesn't really matter whether or not the fender is metal, what matters is how the paint is and how you take care of it.
Pulling a Sea Dawg and bumping myself... Just ordered this next day, so should get it Friday, will let everybody know how it is.Google is handy, but here you go:
Cruise Pack Suction Cup Bag / Pillion Pad For Any Harley Model With A Solo Seat
Yea, this is wise advice, was thinking about this all day long scratching the 800 paint job I just got on this one fender... lol ... Reminds me, I'll add this to the FAQ as well, thanks Jay Cee!I would also take great pains to ensure both the suction cup and the fender are spotless. A small spec of anything under that cup will be ground into your finish.
Just got the paint job done, think I need to let the clear coat's rest for a month before applying wax (least that's what I remember Painter telling me, but I am really tired atm... so, don't know)... I'll call and ask tomorrow about it.I have a suction cup pillion pad for my Johnny Pag Spyder. The suction cups do not scratch the paint if everything is clean but getting it off is a bastard of a job. I find marks from my fingernails on the paintwork after I get it off and I am super careful.
I suggest that in addition to the suction cups being totally clean that you apply 3 or 4 coats of wax on your rear mud guard (fender) before you put it on, that way the wax keeps the paint from getting any marks.
Sure thing...Great find RSS! For sure let me know what you think of it!
