    Painting sponsons

    Has anybody ever painted their sponsons? If so how well did it hold up? After seeing the 2015 Kawi with the green ones I'm wondering if it would be possible to paint OEM RXP-X sponsons. I think it would look good. Anyone have a paint code for the 2014 "viper red"?

    Thanks Jack I will try to match it up and be the guinea pig if nobody has done it with the red or dayglo yellow yet. If I fail and it doesn't hold up it just gives me a reason to buy Riva/R&D sponsons.

    No Problem! Let me know the results! Tip: Clean it good before painting! Also, I would recommend that you put a nice coat of prime paint before colors to make it look better and stronger! Good Luck!

    i'm willing to bet its green plastic the sponsons are made out of. i'd lay quite a few coats of clear over them once you paint them so it holds up.

    People have tried it but have a very hard time getting paint to stick to the textured surface of the sponson since it takes the beating with water pressure that it does....

    I have many parts of my ski hydro dipped,(not sponsons tho) They're holding up great. Outlaw Hydrographics in myrtle beach SC has done a great job on all of my stuff. Highly recommend them. I bring down a different part every time I go on vaca!!

    What about that plasti dip stuff? I've seen wheels done with it and it stands up to pressure washers.
