painting your atv plastics
hi guys i notice alot of people asking about how to paint there atv plastics. let me start out by saying it is not hard but not simple. the one thing that i always have done is to flash the plastic what that is is to heat up the plastics a 2 by 2 are with a torch or heat gun then spry it with 90 to 95 alcohal to get the oils and things out of the plastics that provent the paint from sticking for a long time so if u want to take the time that is the first step. after that step u need to sand the plastics with 220 wet sand paper clean the plastics when done with alcohal and put on to light coats of paint. let it dry for 6 hours then sand it with 320 and do the same thing always doing good prep. next you will use a 600 wet sand paper sand and paint the same as every other time. you will need to do this process with the 600 3 to 4 times to fill in the scratches and build them up. after u are satified with the filling in of the scratches you will do the same process with 800 or 1000 wet 2 times then put on your final 4 coats of paint let it dry for 1 week and you are good to go with paint that will bond good and strong for a long time. i hope this helps but you can take short cuts this is just how to get the best finish. PREP AND SAND IS KEY.
