Hi there. A friend kindly helped clean my X8 400 but managed to take off a patch of paintwork from the front mudguard. The patch is about 4x3cm. I can’t seem to reach Piaggio for advice how to get this repaired. It’s Excalibur Silver. Does anyone know where I can buy a spray can of this colour, should I get the whole mudguard re-sprayed or cheaper just to replace the mudguard with new?. I’m in the West Mids and just want it done ASAP. Thank you.

West Mid's covers quite a big area, if you're near Cradley Heath you could pop in here & have a chat ......

Or if you want to have a go yourself, these are said to be good for colour matching ...

Hi
Try Spraywell paints
http://spraywellpaintsdudley.co.uk/
Very close to Dudley Zoo & Blackcountry Museum.
They made a perfect aerosol match for my blue X9 Evo. Also if you go with the bike then can generally correct the mix for fading that may have happened over time.
No trade connection but I do know Garry, the owner who is most helpful.
Regards
