Since I am married I had to ask Mrs. HMFIC for ATV funding approval and got denied the first 864 times. I am the man of the house and I put my foot down (read: begged, cried and pleaded) I got partial funding and had to scrap the the new Polaris Sportsman 500 for a Polaris '03 Trail Boss 330. So now I can run over deer and other cute animals when I get tired of shooting them (if it can even catch them.)

Anyway, it runs great but its purple and I look like I'm riding Barney around W. Texas. I would like to try to salvage whats left of my ego and camo it up so little girls will stop laughing at me when I tow it on the Highway. I don't want to paint it for sure. (yeah, I saw your last Krylon camo AR...) I looked at the Camoclad vinyl kits that you wet and sqeegee on and I have a feeling that it will look like a 5th grade art project gone horribly wrong and last all of about 5 minutes of riding. Can anyone suggest a company that will dip the plastic on Barney like shotguns and flashlights? I Googled and found a couple places but I think those companies just sell the the process or they dip production runs for other companies.

Ideas?

You should watch "Trading Spaces" and get some ideas for faux finishes or decorative fabrics to spice up your ATV.

That is exactly what I am trying to avoid, lol. I'm not talented enough to paint something that looks good and it drives me crazy to see something that isn't finished as good as the factory finish. I'm just weird that way.

Hurl buckets of mud at it before leaving, then pray that a rainstorm does not appear along the way and reveal your shame to all.
