Just wondering if anyone is good with paint. My brother-in-law works for a company that powder coats and since its free for him I was thinking of haveing my A ARMS done in orange but wanted to get a look first.

The quieter and less intrusive the neighbors, the better!!! Probably can't find neighbors that are more sedate than that.

I think you have enough orange on the sled now, I for sure would not do the spindles in orange, the arms themselves might be ok but I like it best how it is now.

Yeah I like the orange A arm with black spindles, but I wasn't sure if it would be to much orange as well. As for the neighbors they keep to themself for the most part. Some weird :turd: happens now and then but not to often.

Not that my opinion matters much, but I tend to agree with the others ... it looks good with the black a-arms as it is. I think going with orange would be too much overkill (but again, that's JMO). On the other hand, I wonder what it would look like with orange skis? No, just kidding Don :moon:

You've got a great looking sled there ... I really like it.

I was going to be repainting mine (not powder coating) black with some orange pearl. I don't want just solid black, but I don't want orange either. This should give it a nice orange "haze".

Just my 2 cents...but i like it with the black arms personally.

I may paint all the arms on all my sleds in camo soon....that will help them blend in with all the marks from hitting trees....lol

Hey Don, here's another vote to keep them black! Photoshop sure is great.

I think it looks sweet with the a arms done, but I think it looks better with the spindles done, a arms left black... I think its a perfect contrast.. orange nose cone, orange springs, black a arms, orange spindles, black skis, orange tips... it flows perfectly in my opinion.

I do like the orange spindles instead of the A arms but the more I sit and look at it with the loops and the nose being orange and today I got bored so I painted the hood screens orange I'm afraid that I'm getting to much.
