Ammo Can Pannier Modification

Hello Boys and Girls,

I have finally found two very nice sealable, water proof 20mm ammo cans. I have ordered the SW Motec Side racks. I am now in the proccess of searching for the right hardware that I can use to attach the cans to the racks, but somewhat easily remove them as well. I will attach pictures.

Do any of you have a good suggestion for paint (Silver) for the cans? The general though is to go for the leastmcost due to the eventuality of scraping, scratching and denting the cans as I travel. I have been think of that truck bed liner rattle can stuff. I have heard great things about rustoleum spray paint.

Life is a ride that should be thouroughly enjoyed. ATGATT!

I wouldn't use paint, I'd use pickup truck bed coating. It comes in silver and it's quasi-bombproof.
Regards
Mark

Hell yes. Rustoleum rattle can bedliner. Shit is awesome. And touch ups are a breeze. I have it on the cowl on my bike.

You have a fork brace on your bike Lockjaw? Do you notice any difference in the handling? I think yours is the first 08 I've ever noticed with the brace. BTW, the bedliner looks great!

Cheers,
Stew

Yeah, I won it in on contest on here. It makes a difference, but not as much as the smaller fender did. And thanks!
