Make sure before you paint it you scotchbrite it with a brown pad and rewipe it down. I would strongly suggest Bulldogging it too if you want the paint to stick.... Bulldog is and adhiesion promoter for plastic and slick surfaces. good luck.

I still like the bonding primer and polylon because of it's water resistance,elasticity,fade resistance,and does not scratch easy. I've used it on bridges and water towers and a few bardges and it held up really well. Since my 300 is red I figured I would go back with red and the fender has a small crack in it and the polylon will help fill and hold it together and not fade for several years. I've been a commercial and industrial painting contractor for years and just love this type of epoxy.

It holds up great because it's made to flex. It's a super flexible poly epoxy (like plastic)

Yep it's tough only way to remove it after it has cured is a grinder with a wire wheel on it.

I used krylon fusion on my busted up back plastic just because it was soooo faded it looked pink. It worked well but if you have nice plastic and want a good shine I'd use a more professional product such what you are going to use.

Do anyone here know the mixing codes for the tan color used on some of the trx300 fourtrax? I'm getting mine painted this week & need to find the formual for it, my body shop can't find it & the local dealer doesn't have the paint.

For one the reason they don't carry the paint is because the plastics are not painted they are Dyed, the only reason you will have paint on them is if someone else painted them in the past. . Your local paint supplier can scan your plastic and get the color codes for mixing any reputable body shop uses this method. but Tans are whites, browns,yellows,reds, greens, depending on what desired color tan you are looking for. But I have to tell you unless you are bulldogging it, using a flex based paint and plan on baking the paint on the don't look for it to last. Good Luck though

I'm just having the gas tank painted, I have almost every piece of plastic brand new for it that is why I was going to piaint my tank & we can't come up with the mix formual. His scan gun is sent off for repairs right now & he is doing this free for me, I guess we will just to try to find a close match & keep on till we get it right.
