Need to repair paint

I need to make some repairs to my lower front fairing. Part of the damage is the grey pinstripe that seperates the white from the blue. From the factory, is this stripe tape or paint?

I'm also looking for a shop that specializes in BMW motorcycles. I had a link to one but lost it with my computer crash. Any suggestions?

Talk to these good people. www.holtbmw.com They are the one's for Glasurit paint and can probably recommend a paint shop near you.

You can repair the stripe, whether it is paint or tape, by simply applying a tape stripe B/4 you shoot the clear. Putting the tape stripe under the clearcoat should match up really well with the original design.
