I am startin to get the itch so I made a couple changes.
201064215020311_24290.jpg this was what it looked like when I bought it.

201064215029530_24290.jpg phase one- black hood with the SF stickers

201064215039624_24290.jpg phase two- Looks pretty good for $5.00 in paint and a few hours of work.

haha krylon, good call havent seen that in a long time. That body style I really like, gives you lots of color options to play around with, with so many vents, LOOKS GOOD MAN, another cool touch maybe yellow along the running boards or yellow bogie wheels, paint the trailing arm black or the tow hooks on the skis yellow. Playin with colors on sleds is fun, a personal touch gives a sled that edge

Thanks jeeps I was gonna do the ski hoops but ran out of paint. She already has the yellow wheels and I just might do the black trailin arms if I really get ambitious. I have to get the shocks off to get them rebuilt so I may as well go for it then. I really like the zx chassis, at one time I had an 02 olympic edition that I bough new as a left over, never should have got rid of that. So after an exciter and two zr's I'm back on the doo. Ill post more pics as I go.

I would not go any further with the rattle can paint than your hood. It will not stay on those loops that well and will look like crap after a few rides. Just my opinion.

This is true. I did a set on a cat I had and it did start to flake off.

I like the yellow hood to but what you cant see in that picture is the spider cracks in the paint from the previous owner hit something and the fasteners that hold the hood to the hinge broke through the hood.I like the way the black shines when waxed better than the yellow.

Yeah Painting my tow hooks was tricky, and yes it does chip, so up close they look a little rough, but Im going to try some newer paint for plastic by Duplicolor, and bake it on in the oven, just to try it. But cat man doo that line up of sleds you have is pretty sweet, That Olympic edition sounds good, a pic of that would be sweet, my dad had an original olympic, and the exciter was an old favorite of mine that an uncle had. I will find a pic of one of my old favorites, it was a Husqvarna.

that is also my favorite combination. Mine is all yellow, but that body style is made for the black/yellow two tone
