Gonna revive this dead thread.  I went riding today and realized how badly I want the blasty to look better.  I think I'm going to paint it for now and see how it goes.  I'm going to use this method http://www.thequadconnection.com/walkthroughs/painting-atvmc-plastic/ and I'm debating on getting the frame powdercoated or using some spray on bed liner and getting ALOT of coats on the frame.  I can get the whole thing powdercoated by a local shop up here for $350-$400.  Has anybody had any experience or seen anyone that has used bedliner on the frame? 


Also, if I get it powdercoated and the pain job ends up looking horrible after a few rides (which I think it will look good judging by how detailed that write up in the link is) I'm just gonna get new plastics.  I just kinda feel like I'd rather paint them and have the satisfaction of saying... "yeah, that was me"  #DROLL

painting plastics can turn out looking pretty good. I've never personally tried the krylon stuff. The reason that people suggest against it is bc it chips and scratches. I've also had a lot of trouble with getting the paint to stick well around the gas tank. I guess that's from oils that have soaked into the plastic from spills over the years.
I can tell you one thing for sure. NEVER clear coat white plastics. it is an extremely painstaking process to get it off and make them look good again.
 
some people around here like to try and stir up shit out of the blue for no apparent reason.  I've seen no bashing here that wasn't deserved and nothing but good advice on how to take care of issues. So let's keep the comments meant to spark an argument to ourselves

When you say never clear coat them, you mean if you paint them white...or if the plastic is white to begin with? I am going to follow the link that I posted step by step and ill update this thread with pictures as I go. I have to get a compressor off of slick and a paint gun first but ill be getting around to painting soon enough.

I'm painting them black. Going with a monster theme. Idk, if it turns out bad ill just buy new plastics. I think that if I follow the directions listed in the link above it'll turn out awesome.

I've decided against the krylon and all other rattle cans. I'd rather buy the equipment to paint it right.
