    paint???

    If a person wants to paint the ugly grey body parts in particular the front bumper what is the best paint to use.I was going to take it to an automotive paint shop and get it base clear coated.

    I guess it's good timing that you posted this, because just yesterday i was looking at the front of my ski and wondering the same thing. I plan on taking it sometime this week to a friend of mine that owns a paint and body shop and see what he says. I'll post or let you know what he says as soon as i find out

    You can do like JD did and take them off. If you paint plastic it will come off when it touches something.

    Yes, you would have to seal it with something else.

    I'd love to paint my plastic bits, but as much as it bumps up against the dock it would look like crap pretty quick even if the paint was properly bonded to the plastic..

    What is happening is that you are looking at your ski to much at night before you go to bed.....leave like that those bumpers are meant to protect against hits and scratches..just my 2 cents..
