    Default Paint scheme?

    So i know this is a little off topic, but I just tore down a quad i just got in a trade and am going to rebuild it, im getting the frame and components powdercoated and new plastics, i need some input on what to paint it like, skys the limit really, just was thinking metallic black frame and carbon fiber white plastics, with white a-arms, what do you guys think, any pictures you guys wanna post of some good combos thatd be great too, thanks. oh ya, its a 2004 polaris predator. i have a blue on silver yfz450 already too so i want something a little differant in color.

    Hey Ryan, I think black A arms & fenders to go along with the black frame would look good. I've never seen a quad that was black & white, but I have seen a couple cars painted that b&w scheme & they just didn't look right. Small red accents look great with black, & gold looks pretty good too.... just my .02 cents

    Honestly if you really wanna stick out...orange frame with black plastics, like a KTM bike


    Edit: for example...

    well i like the black on black look, just seems like its overdone, the only reason i thought white on black was, well, look at the pictures of my truck...lol. the ktm look is pretty sweet too, definately a top contender, just dont know if i want to go that route and make it look like a ktm quad ya know.

    I'm probably the only one that would like this idea, but, How about green frame and a-arms, with white plastics...I used to have a dirtbike that scheme and really liked it

    I knew you were thinking white, that was going to be my suggestion.

    Yeah, the KTM look is pretty sweet right? I had forgotten that they make quads though, so you prob don't wanna be seen as just copying that. I like the idea of a white frame and black plastics too, or Mike's idea withe the white frame/blue plastics for the Polaris theme.
