It looks like the English weather has really got a hold on my X8 street, I finally got round to painting the lower frame the other the day, well the bits I could get to . I used some hammerite smooth but on doing this, I noticed underneath the cvt cover, the paint had all bubbled and started to come away, AHHH !. I was wondering if any of you guys would have an idea of how much a shot blast and respray would cost, to return the cvt cover to it's original state?. That said, my bike ain't no show pony and I've had to use her in some pretty crap winter weather conditions, so I guess it's faired quite well with all things considered.

No idea, but I'd hazard a guess more than the job is worth. Better just to wire brush it down and apply more hammerite.
The amount of paint needed is very little but a workshop would charge you for a litre, maybe two as a minimum mix amount. If you want a better finish use aerosols. You can get Hammerite in aerosols too.

Yep, I guess DIY would be the cheaper option, tbh as soon as I've got my full licence sorted, I'm thinking of removing the panels completely so I can do a proper job on the frame, might as well attempt the cover then.
