      I scored a trunk for my Cross Country from a local guy that buys Vic's and flips them. The latest XC wasn't far away so no shipping cost which translated into a slight savings for me :biggrin:
      My "First World Problem" is that it doesn't match my bikes unique paint scheme. It's black so it's about as good as I could get without a match but ………………………..
      do I dare check into getting it painted to match and matching flames on it?

      Witchdoctors has the OEM paint. I THINK (but you should check the color) you need this:

      Anti Freeze Green Paint Basecoat Paint -Pint Kit - Witchdoctors (buywitchdoctors.com)

      That will run you $200. Then you should be able to find a local body shop that will paint it for $200-ish if you take it apart and bring just the parts that need paint (the tub and the lid.) Then at least it will match color wise. If you want the flames, the body shop may be able to get them done as an applique and then clear over them. It may not add much to the cost.

      If I were to buy the matching paint would it actually match the current paint since the bike has been used?
      I had my car repaired recently from a homeless guy running into it on his bicycle and they matched the paint and it is close but not exact. I'm assuming because of the age difference and exposure to the elements over time. The car is a 2005.
      If I were to go to the trouble and expense of doing it I'd want it to actually match.

      This may all sound ignorant since I don't know anything about painting vehicles.
