Paint: once in awhile I get minor chipping (like an 1/8" chip so nothing serious or too obvious), nothing a little touch up here and there can't quickly fix. If you scratch up the panels 1st with fine-medium sandpaper prior to paint it'll grab better, or try plastic primer as a bottom coat. I didn't clear coat it since I wanted to have the satin finish, I did use carbunba wax they day later to get it a more satin sheen to it. I didn't sand it smooth afterwards so there's some texture on it (so it's not mirror smooth). I've got compliments from the local scooterists as well so the texture thing isn't a big deal IMO, but sanding will make it smoother if you put the extra effort into it. Rubbing wax onto it (well more like the cloth I used) took off some of the texture as well. Ya, Montana has tons of great color choices.

I actually scuffed up most of my panels 1st, but didn't use primer. The panels where I scuffed it up prior isn't chipping as much, but still does a little bit. But overall there's maybe 4 chips, so it's not like it's chipping everywhere; and have put at least 500 miles since the paint job.

I'm reviving this thread. PLEASE tell me you're still around? My girl is getting into the scooter scene and she digs the look of the C3. Of course there is now way in hell I'm letting her roll stock. Modders mod! :banger:

Now at 13,000km (and a few years since my last post), I decided to redo my C3. New paint (Montana spray paint), handlebars, mirrors, and shocks. New projection headlights and fiberglass-modified the front panel to fill in the stock headlight and horn holes. I got the headlight years ago, most likely from eBay.
