I had good results with Pactra satin black paint from the local hobby shop to cover scratches on my old ST3 panniers. I was able to sand out the scratches, and the color matched pretty much perfectly. Honest guy that I am, I pointed out my repairs to the dealer when I traded the ST3 in. They hadn't noticed them.

Will the black stonechip paint not give a textured effect on the pannier ?

I will call around and see who might carry that product and see what happens. I will keep you all posted for sure

I agree, I don't think you "can" bring it back perfectly. Seems that you'd have to work the entire black surface- essentially creating a new surface on all of it. Perfect is an awfully high bar.

I started using Meguiars Back to Black everytime I wash once a week and saw that black plastic forms a different coat all together and shines after a while.

You Can Only Master If your not scared to try

I had the bed liner applied by a shop that does that sort of thing and seem to recall it cost $100 or thereabouts. I'll post some pics tomorrow.

Don't wash the darn thing.
I have your matching left side with scratches wanna trade or flip a coin and see who gets the scratchy panniers.
For sure don't use fine sand paper .
What I did is to roll some 40 0r 80 grit sand paper to give the closer looking not smooth surface . warmed it up a bit and try anything it is messed up already!?
Yes a kitchen rolling pin will/may get some better results,
Some have said that plastic paint (rattle can ) will do the trick.

Splosh the armor all on and see wht works for you.
I spent some time and ended up saying good enuff, It will only bother you if you let it bother you...
I can live with some warts and all... I am Thrifty....

Bad decisions make for good stories
Take my Advice, I don't use it.

Same here. Once a bike gets that first ding, I just live with the rest that come along. The only time my bikes get much in the way of cosmetics is when it's time to sell or trade.

Well if I was not so particular about my bike I would not mind it. I have a bunch of rock chips and such on the front fender that I have come to live with (until I paint the bike or just get all the colored plastics painted with rhino liner...I have heard that makes one hell of a shield that is vertually indestructable. Still working on a few ideas I have and once I get one that works I will have some details for everyone. Keep the ideas coming!!!
