You must have some serious $'s wrapped up in that bad boy. How many miles a year do you put on it?

yeah its not really worth it. I wet sanded my old plastics to get the rough edges out and then i sanded them with some 180 to scuff them a little bit. My cousin even owns a paint shop so I took every lil bit of advice he gave i bought the bulldog to spray the plastics first so it acted as an adhesive component... Well needless to say the paint was nice for about 3 months and then after that it peeled right off as if it were spray paint so don't waste your money..IMO

<div class="FTQUOTE"><begin quote>the paint was nice for about 3 months and then after that it peeled right off as if it were spray paint</end quote></div> What caused it to peel? Did it come off with a pressure washer or from scratches or ?? How much is left on the quad?

This is something I'm considering doing to my old Kodiak, so I'd like to understand the pitfalls.
