Starting The Saddlebag Refinish

Took off all the top coat and primer and much of the gel coat.

I'm choosing to leave some of that. I took off all the cracks in it... Soooo... I'm thinking I'm good. We shall see.

First coat of resin is on. But it's pretty cool so curing will take quite a bit longer.

Plan is to sand it with very fine paper and after cleaning that, apply a second thin coat.

I'll let that cure a few days before I prep and apply the new paint.

Speaking of which, I'm going a "cheaper" but what I think is more reasonably maintainable route this time around...

... More reasonable for "hard used" equipment I think. More on that saddle bag paint later. ;)
