I have seen some of yall have different colored grill/radiator covers on your raptors, did you sand off all the original paint then put on new, my dad thought he would be a hot dog on my rapt from his old dirt bike days and he scraped up my radiator cover

the actual grill i wouldn't honestly worry to much about as there isn't much flexing that goes on there.. I used krylon fusion though as well.

scuff it with a scotch brite pad, just knock the shine off it, use a poly based paint ,color of choice and used binder in the primer,paint and clear,it's what we used when we paint plastic (abs ) bumpers on newer cars. it won't crack unless you really flip and hit it really hard.and if you do, just scuff and reshoot it :thumbsup:

I think I'll just rub it with something frictiony and try the krylone paint (black) if worse comes to worse I'll get a new one from dealer

scuffed mine with a brillow pad, cleaned it off, and sprayed. used the fusion paint also, in black. havent had any problems, i also bought some cheap spray clear coat too.

isnt perfect, but unless your within 1 foot of the grill its not noticable. i spent under an hour on it.

yeah, you shouldn't have a problem at all, honestly, just get a scotch brite pad from like walmart or even the dollar store and you should be set :thumbsup:

Does that krylon fusion have any shine to it or is it dull?

my dad had 2 ranchers and one got stolen one night, he owns a warehouse buisness. Anyways he found the guy that did it later in the warehouse again, he drew his pistol on him, backed him up to the docking door (for the semi trailors) then picked him up and threw him about 7 feet down right on his head. Of course he was black........... thats memphis, TN for ya(2nd highest crime city nation wide) You should here the story about another black that was trying to steal toilet paper, he thought he was stealing something nice and big in a brown box when he opened it, it was a bunch of TP, then he got his azz kicked
