Apologies for the late comment on here, but in agreement with everyone else's thoughts,very well deserved. A pristine model.

Thank you! Your Rancher can shine too, cost is under $12 shipped!

Get'cha a Wipe New Recolor kit on the fLeebay.... scrub the plastics super clean with soft soapy brushes and microfiber cloths, rinse well and allow to dry. If you have some Prep-sol handy you can wipe the plastics down to insure that no waxes or oils remain on the surfaces.

Apply the Wipe New Recolor with the supplied microfiber cloths indoors out of the sunlight, keeping your cloth soaking wet with the Wipe New as you work. Take your time... remove the seat, mask off the lights, grips, controls, etc., to prevent getting it on things that should not be coated. Allow the coating to dry/harden slowly in a dark, dust free place for 48 hours. Nevermind the instructions in the package... surface preparation and wet application of the product rubbed into every surface well is the key. :-)

As far as I know the YR-222R "Zest Orange" color code appeared on the earliest 350 Ranchers only. It was dropped after two or three years I think, when Yellow first appeared on the 350 Rancher.
