cidered666 Posted January 1, 2006 Share Posted January 1, 2006 Hi chaps & chapesses, happy new year to you all. This photo is of my arai astro j lid. I recently took a tumble from my bike during which the lid took a glancing blow on the road. As you can see, just above the visor-hinge(?) there is a 1p coin-sized chip off the paintwork but NO other damage whatsoever. Should I be thinking about replacing it? The scrape seems too superficial to warrant the expense of a new lid. I thought that until next year, maybe, i could touch it up with some light filler silver touch-up paint or even filler and a sticker any suggestions gratefully received. I enquired at a bike shop but all thay wanted to do was flog me a new one with bullshit like 'well they don't always show the damge sustained blah blah blah of course you should buy a new helmet sir, step this way.......' know what I mean Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
