Painted Beartraker plastics


Recommended Posts

Big thanks to Frank Angerano for all the help he's provided. Plastics were super sun faded and decided to paint them. 

Upon Frank's recommendations, i used minwax poly to clearcoat after the painting. Turned out good, and is a very close match.

Not sure, this is the first time I've done this. I did 3 coats of paint and 3 coats of minwax polyurethane upon Frank's recommendation. 

He has used just poly on another project that turned out great. I thought mine were just too sun faded for just the clear.

Just miniwax quick drying poly in a aerosol can. I used satin. 

This beartracker was a nightmare for weeks. Nothing electrical worked, brakes were all locked up and reverse linkage was also frozen. Many, many hours on this thing.

With enough sanding of the plastics, i like to water sand so no dust. 
You take off enough layers to get back to the original color.  Its just a matter of how deep you can or want to  go. 
 

okay makes sense.
