    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg Just sent #4 out so I thought while 3 were still here I'd take a couple of pictures for the Forum. # 5 coming tomorrow and # 6 in early June.

    Great job!

    Do you mind telling us what is a fair price to paint a Slingshot? A range would be just fine, as I know different paint choices would change cost.

    I have Painted for Forum Members at 1/2 of what I would normally charge and that is virtually any color. The black inserts or any airbrushing would be additional.

    When I got mine I can tell you that I know why body shops are scared to death to do them ..... Too weird to disassemble and unless you are aware of the material and fasteners that Polaris uses you're going to break something! And replacement parts are not cheap!

    A normal charge to paint a slingshot should hover around $3000. ( I guess you can do the math at 50% ) Considering what wraps cost and comparing the two I would feel that's a pretty good deal. A couple of Dealers have already contacted me to do some custom colors.

    I am not advertising and am not looking to paint SS's!!!!!!! But I am always willing to help out a Member if I am able.

    Thank you @TravAZ . When you belong to a forum as good as this one has become, you feel like you need to give back a bit!

    Quick paint / tint question..... @Painter (not meant to de-rail your awesome thread)

    I am want to follow the normal "tail light" tint process to tint my blade windshield. As a DIY, will the below product work just fine?

    Very nice Painter. I know what you mean about taking one apart. I had a budy ask if I would come take one apart for him at his shop. its only about a two hour job once you do the first one.

    Trav, I wish I could help you out on the spray paint but I have never used it and don't want to give any advice on something I don't know! I do know that VTH make some pretty good products. One just does not find spray cans around my shop!

    I agree @GoNfast38 .... It's the reassembly that's the real tricky part!
