Default Painting a Yamaha G2A

Hi everyone,

I have an early 90's Yamaha G2A that is cosmetically in need of fresh paint, new seat covers, and shocks for its age. Other than that, the cart is good and gas motor on it is excellent beyond belief of its age and the abuse it suffered over the years with the kids.

Instead of buying a new Cart - so that my teenage daughter can impress her friends, I was thinking about painting it instead. I have done small metal and fiberglass paint jobs before, but this cart has flexible plastic body on both front and back. What type of paint should I use? and what is the proper procedure?

I've read on the forum about Krylon Fusion for plastic but I'm wanting to give it a good paint job instead of simply splashing color that may either peel off or make it look even worse.

You can read the sticky on prep work for plastic bodies and that should give you the information you need about that portion of the job. As far as the paint goes you can use either a uerathane base coat clear coat system (wich is what is on vehicles) or a single stage acrylic enamel system. There are others but these are the most common.
The base coat clear coat system is really the easiest in my opinion and lets you sand and buff out any imperfections such as debris, dust, runs etc. The single stage is pretty much just mix and shoot, now you can clear over it but if you are going to do that you might as well do the base clear. As always these are just my opinions and I am sure others will have some also, good luck and happy painting.
