    Paint Job for RXP hood peices?

    Ok, I did a search and got some info, but only for the hull, not the hood.

    I want to have all my hood peices painted silver like the RIVA Stage 3 ski that was on display.

    What type of paint job should be done? I hear some say air brush, but what would be the best for the hood since it's plastic?

    I also want the knee pads on the sides painted black. How should I go about that?

    Where/what places would be the best for having this done?




    Thanks

    Just order the top shell off of the 04 yellow RXP. It is silver. Thats what Riva did
    Also, the 04 knee pads on the yellow RXP were black.

    Cool, thanks. I was going to go with the '04 hood peices, but then I thought they looked a little more grey than the RIVA.

    If they're the '04 hood and what RIVA did are the same that's what I'll do.


    Hydrotoys, how much did all the hood peices cost you?

    I don't remember... Maybe $500? It's been so long now.

    Painting would be alot cheaper. . .

    Heres what I used, just left over paint from my car:



    now its a real red:


    I also used a poly-urethane primer, but that was only because I had bare plastic and fiberglass showing, all you would have to do is scuff up the stock paint then its good to repaint over.

    According to RIVA that is not the '04 yellow RXP hood.

    I think Im going to have my hood painted. I like the silver color like on Bushell's CF hood.



    Jerry, when you're at the RIVA HQ, could you get some pics of this ski for me if they have it on display?


    Thanks

    Thanks Jerry.

    I plan on making my ski look sharp this year. One of a kind on my lake. Kind of annoying when everyone has the same looking ski, even though whats under the seat may be different.
