The best thing I have found is to use a wire brush on a drill then use a rust inhibiter. Something like Nutrarust. It turns into a hard paintable surface. There are a number of producs outthere that do the same thing. Or you can get them sandblasted and repaint. Riley
USE Bill Hirsch's black miracle paint, THE BEST STUFF ON THE MARKET,
IT REALLY WORKS THE MORE RUST THE BETTER IT WORKS,I USED IT ON MY
CAR ON THE FRONT END AND USED IT ON MY SLED, IT STOPS RUST AND WILL
NEVER RUST AGAIN.I BOUGHT IT AT A NAPA STORE IN CT. NOT TO MANY PEOPLE CARRY IT.DO A SEARCH ON Bill Hirsch's miracle paint.
lightly sand, clean greese and other dirt with a something that leaves no residute such as Prep All. Then paint with POR 15. This stuff is great and I swear by it. It is expensive, but worth every penny. It is brush on and self leveling. Check it out:
Well your in luck. Polaris has used the same spindle from the late 80's to near current, if not current.
Check the f/s forum here, amsnow, snowest, etc... I've seen new or almost new polaris oem plastic skiis (owner takes 'em off right away to replace with aftermarket skiis) go for around $100-$150. This is a fairly cheap way to go, to get lighter, better handling skiis.
Otherwise skiis like slp (I have), kimplex, simmons, etc will run you $275 and up.
