    To prevent whats left of your fender becoming oxidized like it was previous to,
    remember to regularly polish it with wax or something surpass like 303’s UV

    So I have a million dollar question. What if you own an R6, that is white
    but the head fender is early to turn yellow? I like my bike and even
    though this method seems to be an outstanding way to do it, I just feel a
    small insecure to apply it. Buying the part would cost me $454.58 and not
    only that, but this was a limited edition affect so I wouldnt even have it
    in white but rather in blue, red, yellow or silver and also if I were to
    paint it, then I would have to paint the whole bike to make an even affect.
    So Im pretty much screwed. Any suggestions? =(

    my cr125 was spray painted by the person who owned it previous to me. I started
    scraping and I saw a layer of primer and then a layer of dark paint that
    doesn’t look like honda’s factory paint. I’m trying to get the honda
    factory red on it

    I have heard of people using a similar heating method on acrylic, but I
    never would have thought it’d work so well on something like this. It’s
    like a groundbreaking new bike!

    Can you respray plastics such as these? I’ve been told that paint won’t
    stick to these types of plastics even if you sand them down and prime them.

    A much surpass way of renewing plastic is using a soft cloth to apply and
    take out a mixture of 60% paint thinner and 40% boiled linseed oil. You’ll be
    amazed at the result.

    If you want to avoid the risk of melting your fender, high grit sandpaper
    followed by buffing compound should work too.

    Sterile it, prep it, paint it with adhesion promoter, then a clear coat to
    protect it from sun hurt again.
