    I have a couple new chips in the paint on the bottom edge of my rear fender, down to the metal. I'll eventually take the fender off and have it painted, but as a temporary fix, I want to just dab on some touch up paint.
    Any pointers on technique I should know? Any prep work I need to do to the metal - sand down paint edges, etc?

    Oh, there's also a chip in the paint on the swingarm.

    I'll save you all the details about the smashed rear turn signal and baseball size, rainbow colored bruise on my arm. :56:

    Thanks,

    Here it is. Just plain black. Should be easy to hide.
