Anybody painted their front shock springs a different color?

My yellow is chipped a little so going to get it repainted, just wondering if any colors look good.

My sled is a 03 440 sno pro.

Thanks

ya spend the extra cash and get a body shop to do it with an extremly flexable paint, otherwise they will be chipped up and yellow showing through as soon as you get them on the sled.

I know because i did it last year and regret wasting the cash on the spray bomb paint, and time.

Doing the same thing myself, just took shocks off last night. Checking into the powdercoating, don't want chipping. Gotta get rid of the yellow anyway....reminds me of SkiDogs.

I was told by my body shop that Powder coating will not hold up on the springs because of the constant moving.

make sure you sandblast the factory powdercoating off or get it stripped. if you bake the factory stuff off the temp. which they do it at is too hot and the springs will lose their temper. learned that the hard way years ago
