I have a black 2003 Shadow ACE. I can't find my left side cover and the right side could use a touch up. Instead of black, I was thinking some kind of metallic red. Has anyone done this? Also, ebay doesn't have any stock ones, just a chrome set and right side. Does anyone have a left?

Sorry, I don't have any LEFT.
Watched someone else do their side covers, it looked kind of quick and easy with a rattle can. They fine steel wooled the covers, gave it a light prime spray then followed with a couple coats of blue. I think they gave a final coat of clear. It sure did look great and was darn close to the tank and fenders. I hope someone can give you some professional advice. As for the chrome covers, they are not my choice and the price was kind of high.
Good Luck.

I don`t use primer on a surface which already has paint on it, unless I sand through...
Sand the covers and paint with the paint of your choice...
The stock HONDA paint will accept MOST paints as a cover...

Paint on brother!!!
Merry Christmas,
