    GSA Crash Bar Colour

    Looking for a bit of help guys and gals. I have used my 08 GSA off road and of course dropped it a few times. Anyway I have now bought a XChallenge for my dirty pleasure and am giving the GSA a makeover to restore it to it's former glory. So my question is has anyone any idea what Silver is the best match for spraying the crash bars. As looking at Halfords range of sprays their are loads which look close but I wondered if anyone has knowledge of which is the best match.

    Not sure of exact match on silver however consider a nice gloss black to match the frame... and do the engine covers at the same time. Very fetching!

    Been there and done that etc ---- Hammerite spray silver (smooth) is perfect.
    Also a perfect match for Hepco Becker engine bars as well

    A BWM dealer will be able to give you the paint code.

    Standard GSA engine/tank bars aren't painted are they!
    I'm sure they are peened stainless steel?
