I'm not a "paint and body" guy, so please be patient. I have removed my "front leg shield" (the largest piece of tupperware on my '03 650) so that I can have a lot of little cracks welded and some other repairs done. I have NO idea how/why/when it cracked, but it was sometime while I was riding it last summer/fall. Maybe hit a pothole or took a set of railroad tracks too fast. Anyway . . . when the welding is done, I'll have to repaint that piece. How much paint should it take? I see that the Colorrite website offers half-pint, pint, and quart sizes. While I'm at it, I may touch up a few things, or even paint the wheels (Thanks, LeDude, for that idea).

Thanks for your advice.

You need the least amount of paint you can get. My brother uses a basecoat/clearcoat system and he painted the fairing and the lids of 2 bags for my BMW with .2 of a pint and had plenty left over.

Thanks. That's the direction I was leaning, but needed confirmation. I'll be buying the half-pint.
