Skinz makes a trunk delete kit for them.... put one on my F1000 before I sold it... made it look 100 times better... arctic fx makes some nice wraps for them... could check ebay for different body parts.... pick up some all black side pieces and nose cone.... green.... get rid of that silver.... I put a set of sly dog skis on mine.... handled a lot better... and u can get those skis in bout any color combo u can dream up.... throw on a lower windshield.... endless possibilities just how much cash you wanna throw at it.....

2007 was the least appealing of the twin spars. 2008 was (IMO) one of the best looking. Just getting rid of the silver "spar" along the sides made a big difference in the way the sleds looked. Maybe try that for starters ... the spar cover panels are fairly inexpensive.....

Park it next to a Ski Doo......
That'll pretty it up fast.......


Personally, I do love the way my turbos look...I guess it's just me, huh?

Before picture of Ross's '07 F6 Sno Pro.
Did our own version of the '08 graphics (buddy's 08 F10 is in the pic for comparison of how AC did it). Like my version with the green hood better.
