Default Painted inner fairing

I noticed in the parts book the other day, that a new painted inner fairing for a Street Glide is $519.

Would it be better to just take mine to a paint shop and have it painted? or should i just suck it up and buy the darn thing? What have you guys done?

I am in the Dallas area.. so if you know of a good paint shop let me know.. I would appreciate it.
Thanks

Mo

It depends on the color you need... For the common colors, a factory painted one is the way to go, IMHO, especially if you are having the dealer install it. For the not so common colors, I'd be tempted to find someone local to paint it during the winter.
I ordered a HD painted fairing for my '11 root beer Ultra on Feb 4th.. I am STILL waiting.

"Vivid BlacK" should be easy enough for local people to match.
Especially if you are doing all the removal & install.

You'll get it fast then if you go the HD route.
I'm going to my dealer this week and demand they contact someone at HD to see if they will EVER being doing a run of root beer inner fairings.

I bought a one off ebay and had it painted by a local guy. I ended up with 250 in mine and I have a extra inner. No down time either.

Vivid and black install yourself? Have a painter do it. Should be half the cost. Ask around at your dealer who they use for paint. Most shops that paint Harley's already have the vivid black color

I had a local painter do mine during the winter (short time here), looks great and hell of a lot cheaper.
