Here it is resting.



Note the scratch on the Zega from when it was resting.


One thing you might consider is to take the bags to a place that does spray on bedliner material. Not only will this help keep the scratches down, but it will help keep the zega bags water tight at the bottom seal. Looks nice too.

Or go to Walmart buy some Plasti-kote bediner and roll it on yourself,cheap and easy note sides of Elefant in post 3019 were it lays down when its tired and the operators not paying attention.DB

That also sounds like a great solution. I haven't used the roll on stuff myself but I'll have to take a look.

Also, a word of advice if you do to to the spray on place to have it done.. try and leave the bags there and have them do it when they have to do a truck... that will save you some cash.. they will probably do the job for less then $50... turns out nice and uniform... at least it did for me.

Plasticote sells a nice spray on bedliner that works great, is durable, touchupable, and smoother finish than the roll on stuff. Buy it at most autoparts store.

I painted my whole KLR with it, and it worked great!

Just a little nicer, and a hell of a lot more fun, and expensive!

Its the same stuff the trick is not to stir the roll on stuff much and all the rubber chunks lay at the bottom, its interesting as you can sand it.If you buy the gallon every GS owner you know,in your club and or state can do their Panniers spots that always hit the ground when it lays down etc etc etc. I had the Elefant in 3019 laying on her side to drag it out of a mud hole (boy do I have alot to learn) this PM, hosed her off good as new.
