I have painted my Edge from the factory "BLACK" ski loops,
grill screens and rear shroud vents to the screaming yellow scheme. I used spray paint that bonds well with plastics and polymeres; the plastic components have taken the paint well and I am very impressed with the results.

Make sure the paint cures in for a week before placing the plastics back on to the sled. Once the paint has cured there was no notable flaking when handling the ski loops.

as for the vents that flank the gas tank, I purchased some gutter guard mesh and cut the mesh to fit the vents. I painted he mesh screaming yellow and I have to say it was the best $1.50 set of screens that i have ever seen!!!

That looks great.  Good job.  Where did you get the paint for the plastic at and what brand is it.

Very nice work.  You inspired me to maybe pull the cover off my sled, and see what I can do to it this weekend.

I would also be interested in the paint type.

Hmmm. Now I'm wondering what I can do for my ride. Did that paint come in green?

Thanks !!!  i used the same kind of paint. Kyrlon is made by sherwin williams so its goos paint !  

The floors come from a house that had a flood so they ripped evething out, i took the good part and made a nice and cosey house for my sled, Its not as big as i would want it, its only 14 x 20 but for the sled its perfect ! Oh yeah the flood was in the kitchen so that is why i have thoes nice kitchen cabinets also ! il take a better pic and post it !

I moved the Phazer from the shed to the garage on Friday to start tearing it apart (I'm putting a Cat skid in it and cleaning it up), and the darn thing started on the second pull after sitting since Feb/March.  What a great sound!  Driving it 200 feet across the grass was the most fun I've had in months.  I had my 20 month-old son on with me (wife was at work) so it was a very short ride, otherwise I probably would've ripped up and down my backyard until it overheated.  The exhaust brought a tear to my eye (or maybe that was the Injex;  I gotta switch to Amsoil.)
Can't wait for snow!
