Removing 1997 GP Red Plastic
I am getting my 97 repainted. I have a service manual which should help. Any guys ever removed the painted plastic that can offer some tips? I have not started yet.

HMMM been awhile since I removed mine to paint them, but it was pretty straight foward. Only problem I had was the bolts for the hadle bars under the pad were corroded and I broke 1, might want to use a little heat on them.

I got my bars off last night. Im going to try and get to the plastic today. Do the mirrors have to be un bolted first? I know the plastic is slotted where the mirrors are, so I'm thinking the mirrors can stay on.

If I remember correctly there is only the one bolt in the front holding it on, the sides just clipped into the black peices on the hull and The mirrors can stay on.

That was really easy, was expecting there to be a hidden bolt or something! I did not want to break anything.

Are you painting the plastics yourself? My plastics were really faded bad, I tried wet sanding them to bring the color back but couldn't get them a consistent color. Plus my glove box broke and I could only find a blue one so I just used a $5.00 can of Krylon Fusion spray paint for Plastic. Came out much better then expected and has been about 3 yearsd since I did them held up nice. Only problem was it's hard to eliminate overspray with a spray can.
