Agostini AMA Vintage Days Help

Well,

I am going to the AMA Vintage Days for MV event and they have a autograph session for Noon Saturday with Ago.

I was thinking of taking off my side panels/that cover up the gas tank area. Not the side cowls that cover the engine and getting them signed by Ago.

Any recommendations on exactly what I should do. I have talked to several body/paint shops and they say don't use a sharpie they wont be able to clear coat over them especially silver sharpie color.

I know this has been suggested before but I have a 2002 model and they seem to have a ton of clear coat on these earlier models compared to todays. The paint shop advised to scuff it up a little with some 200 grit sand paper so the signature would stick.

Not sure what to do.

I've seen people put theirs on Ebay for sale after the disaster of trying to clear coating it.
I saw some one removing their tacho screen and have it signed. I thought that was a classy move...

That is exactly why I am making 100% sure I don't F*&K it up. That is also why I am using a very small piece for the bike. I was going to do the tail section below my EVO II decal. But no way I am chancing that.

I finally found a motorcycle painter in Indianapolis. He highly advised I use a Pigma Micron Ink Paint Pen.

He has used it thousands of times with this type of application and says it has never run or bled during clear coat applications.
