PostSubject: Remove all plastics   Remove all plastics EmptyMon Jun 30, 2008 11:04 am

gonna have a few weekends on my hands here shortly.... going to remove the plastics and paint em....

any pointers on hwo to remove them all EFFECTIVELY?

shoudl i go ahead and order a kit of the small plastic attachement devices before I put them back on?

Also, I am going to buy fender flares.... should I paint them installed - or install them after painting??? Unfortunately, I know what will look better, just being lazy Wink


anyway - an insight would be much appreciated - of course I will keep everyone posted with pics.

You are going to paint your plastics? What are you going to make it look like? How do you get it to stick? I guess you gotta rough it pretty good then a good thick base coat of primer?

I have already replaced 4 of the factory ones. Chances are, with my experiance, you wil be replacing some due to already broken ones and damaged ones that you remove. If you havent replaced any of them here is a tip; completely remove the plastic screw and then pop out the female part, either from the backside or a small flat blade screwdrive to prize it out. IMO, fresh paint with old attaching screws = ugly.

rcmass,

I would get built replacements if you have the money. I took my plastics off for the camo job and the stock CRAP attachment devices do not tighten down to my like-in. You are going to break some anyways. Good luck.

Dude WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do not use Krylon!!!!! It sprays dry and you will not get it to shine!!! Use Valspar for plastic from Lowe's. It atomizes much better than the krylon. I've seen the orange Valspar at Ace-Hardware, not at Lowe's. I've had time on my hands this week waiting on parts. I will take you through the steps if you want, I learned from trial and error.

You can also get the body-pins at Lowes 1/4 inch 2-pack for ,I think it was 1.29 ea.

1st remove the plastics of course.

2nd remove the stock-stickers-you can get replacements, newer year,same year-from www. yamahasportsplaza.com- cheap-I've got some ordered, 08 RHINO, chrome-rasied-sport for the hood

3rd -wet-sand with 400, knock all the shine off, this is very important!! Then wet-sand with 600.

4th-dry and check for shiny-spots, they will be mostly in the creases, then hit it with Scotch-Brite pad, (about 1000-grit).

5- Very important!!!! wipe-down with laquer-Thinner, soak-it if you have too!!!! Wipe it twice, this will prevent "fish-eyes" I tried Prep-Sol the first time,it did not take all the Plezus, or Armor-All off, I got fish-eyes big time.

6th- Tack it off with a tack-rag, this will get most of the trash off, not all, but most.

7- Here's where the "skill" comes in. Dust it with a few light coats, sort of like a primer-coat. Do all the edges first. Let it dry about 5 mins between dustings. This light coat will kill any trouble-spots, "fish-eyes". It will look dry of course and ugly, but wait............

8- Now here's where it counts. Do total-leanth strokes, in other words, hold the button on the can from one side to the other, don't stop in between or you will get "splatter-spots". Build the paint until it "melts". You will think "it's gonna run" it won't. You will see the 'Melting" process begin when you get the whole piece "wet" enough and it will start to shine. Keep the can close, the further away , the dryer the finish will get. It takes some practice, try it on a scrap piece of smooth plastic first.

If you see it going-south, "fish-eyes" ect., you loaded it too heavy during the first "primer' coats, stop,you will not cover them, and just take the wet, or dry-paint off with laquer-thinner and a rag and try again.

I did the hood first, which was a mistake. The best parts I did were the later parts, after practice, of course, which were the bed-sides . Do a bed-side first, so if you mess-up, it's less to correct.

The gloss on the later bed-sides look like they were dipped in water, they look awesome!!!!

After drying for a few days, I'm going to try the protection-part of the story. My guess is either a thick-coat of paste-wax or sanding with 1500 and hand-buffing with a non-abrasive compound, then waxing. I'll up-date after the holidays.

If it ends-up too course looking, orange-peel, or dry-spots, wait about two-hours and sand back down with wet-600, Scotch-Brite, tack-it and try again. Just smooth it out, no need to remove all the paint. Wet it out again..........

I tried using the Krylon for some graphics, same steps,it looked like shit, it dries too quickly to get it to 'Wet" out. That's why I say don't use it. Some over at RF.Net have used it (Krylon) but I wasn't impressed with the results unless they clear-coated it.

I would definately get the billit hardware from ebay. I did and love them. You can reuse them 'cause they don't break like the factory plastic ones do.

Robbie, they are the exact same ones. They are usually in the hardware section in those metal pull-out displays, the ones with springs,plugs,rollers, ect. look close you'll find them.
