Blaster Plastics

This may sound dumb...I'm going to either be painting my plastics with krylon fusion or buyin new plastics....more than likely just painting with krylon for now...anyway...there's two questions here...has anybody ever used krylon fusion...and is it good for atv plastics...second question is if I buy new plastics can I use 03+ on my 01 or do they have to be older style plastics...not sure if the new ones will bolt up or not...also...any suggestions on paint brands for atv plastics would be much appreciated... Thanks guys

Yes you can fit the hood, it will only bolt up next to the fuel tank so you might need to drill a few holes to hold it firmly in place, if you want to fit the head light you will need to make a mounting bracket or you can just mesh it out, personally it looks better meshed out  ;)

Have to make a bracket for front mounting as Project Blaster is no more. Did little search, found nothing that shows the bracket on E2s.

So it will bolt up to the holes that hold the hood in place now? And ill have to drill holesdown towards the bumper to hold it in place?

Pretty much , There are more holes in the 03+ hood that do not bolt on to a 88-02 .. allot of people just grab some metal and make some brackets for it to mount a little more solid . Or Zip Ties would work haha .


That works, I'm just looking into painting my plastics for now.  I neeed to buy a front rigth fender and a fender stay.  I'm going to use Krylon Fusion paint (i've heard good things about it online).  All in all it shouldn't run me more than $100 to get the plastics looking new.  I'll def. be posting some pics of the process when I tackle it!

You'd be a savior dude!  My front plastics just flop around right now and OEM is $50 for the stay.... I couldn't believe it when I saw how much a little piece of metal was!

Jeez that's crazy High for that bracket . I know for sure I have one here that's a little used , might have some surface rust and black coating is chipping some


If you find one and you're willing to part with it, shoot me a PM and I'll give you my e-mail to send the invoice to.

I'm actually seeing quite a few plastic sets on ebay brand new for like 350.  Can't decide if I like the race front end more than the regular fenders... I ride mostly woods and mud... so I'd imagine that the race front end would get me insanely muddy... regardless there are really good deals on new plastics... think i'm gonna just go that route

He got the slick hook up!


SURE DID!!  I'm waiting to put it on until I get another front fender.  I'm gonna be ripping it apart in the fall to paint everything.  I have a full garage now, so I can do some real painting if I get an air compressor and gun!

Ummmm, speaking of a compressor, Would you be interested in the one I have here in my garage it's 5gallon, 110V.  I'd give it to you, My bro in law has been bugging me to come get his huge compressor system out of his garage, and I'd donate this one to you. All ya need to get is hose and you could borrow my paint gun.  Harbor freight has hose for like $10

You know I won't just take it off of you, but YEAH I WANT IT! Seriously, when I bring you the heat gun I'll pick up the compressor.  I have a garage and no tools, so this can be a good start to my garage! :) You're the man!
