I have a buddy that does auto body repairs and painting...he said he can paint my Z plastic, like to do a flame job, and the paint will stay on...does anyone know if the paint will stay on the plastic?

If you want an all black z400 that will never get its fenders scratched buy you some spray on bed liner and put it on your Z and say bye bye to scratches.

That 400ex in ATVSPORT had M&M's painted on it. The bedliner would weigh so much but would be kinda cool. U migh be able to something like a clear sticker or some type of cover.

i never was a fan of adding flames/lightning bolts to atvs. but i do think it would look good jet black. but i'd never have the guts to let someone actually paint it.




someone should do a photoshop job on it to see what these paint jobs would look like.

I know your buddy should know this, but you need to add a flex agent to the paint because the plastic flexes and will crack the paint.

ive asked him about the paint cracking and stuff, and he said it will be fine...i think he knows what hes doing, he'll probably do whatever needs to be done...but im not doing anything to the plastic untill i get my new black plastic, or whatever cool color...lol...but im leaning towards black, it would look nice in black...

he shouldn't have any problems. think about it, bumpers on these new cars are amost as flimsy as plastics on quads.
