Ok guys I have a Red AC, with the Grey rims. (See pic) I really want to paint them black. I was gonna get them powder coated by a buddy of mine, but he said for what i use my ATV for I'd be better off just spray painting them. What do you guys think? I also wanted to do the racks (same color as rims) black too, I was almost thinking of getting them sprayed w/ a spray on truck bed liner. What do you guys think on this also?

I would put bed liner on the racks and Paint the rims. If powder coating is faily inexpensive I would do that. IMHO

thanks for the replies, I'll defiantly just spray paint them. Cheaper on my part anyways.

I put bed liner on my V2 and it worked well. I might suggest bringing in the racks into a body shop and have them sandblast it. It's a LOT easier than sanding it by hand.

One more Question, would it look better flat black or gloss?

When I put the bed liner on my stuff I bought the spray on. It seemed to work great.

I got some Duplicolor stuff from Walmart. Ended up using something like 5 cans in all. Worked great, but make sure you sand the racks first so it sticks to it good.

I'll probably end up sand blasting the racks, if not i'll be sanding for a while.
