My tiger panniers are really showing their age.

Scratched and scuffed.

Is there any repair / filler that can be bought (UK) that can be used to do a quick or reasonable repair?

Will to give it a go......

Cheers, for any feedback.

Gavin, I used Jif to get rid of all the scuffs off my white panniers that other cleaners did not move. Do you have a photo of the scratches, presumably paint missing? Regards Cec.

Cec,
Aye there is paint missing, which is a bit of an understatement.
Minor scratches and scuffs I managed to remove with a combination of cleaner and believe it or not, ordinary toothpaste.
I guess I am looking for the kind of filler you can get for car or vehicle profiles.
Apply and cure.
I may have answered my own question here.
A visit to a car body shop to see if they sell any product over the counter.

Check with World of Triumph first. If available from Triumph, replacement infill panels for my Sprint were cheaper than the local body shop wanted to repaint them. Even with shipping costs to the US.

Excellent suggestion.
I will contact my local Triumph dealership.
See what they say........
However with Christmas looming on the horizon, this may have to wait till the coffers are topped up in the New Year.... :D
