    Painting hood

    Is the hoods on an RXP painted or gelcoated? I assume it's paint because it is plastic but am unsure. Anyone done anything crazy paint wise in the hood? (full chrome, ghost flames , gold plating lol) pics would be great thx

    i dont know if they did it , but someone suggested a special paint that changes colors (black to tan or white or different colors) depending on temperature...
    black=cold, white =warm....

    and someone else did the chameleon with purple/green sparkles in it...

    im wanting to do my hood aswell... as soon as the weather starts heating up..

    I would like to find someone to do some chrome plating on the hood. Not having much luck getting someone to plate plastic.

    Last year I found a place on the web that would plate my grab handle for 600 which I thought was out of line
