    Anyone have any recommendations for how to paint ATV plastics? My Eiger has horribly faded plastics. I made them red again with a torch, but they still look turdy.

    It isn't a huge deal, but I'd still like to clean it up and make it look nice. Just put some fancy wheels on it and now it looks goofy.

    Had good luck with krylon fusion paints for plastic on some chainsaw covers.. seems to hold up well. Ymmv.

    Edit - you may want to look into adhesion promoter and commercially available automotive paints - they stick on bumpers pretty good.

    I am in a similar situation. I have used the Krylon paints on plastic items with success, not sure about ATV plastics. I have thought about wrapping them.

    Krylon fusion camo colors, then use a satin clear over the top, works great, prep is the key

    Google using Penetrol on faded plastic - I used it on the fender flares, steps, and hard top on my TJ. Excellent results, very long lasting.

    I also had a friend who bought an old blue Yamaha dirt bike, and used Wipe New and was very happy at the color it brought back.
