They paint them white and they are UGLY IMO. I don't mean any disrespect to the guys who have gone through the trouble pf painting them up white - there are some guys who have done a great job. I just think white would be the LAST color I choose when going that route.

At any rate....they PAINT them......

okay, thanks guys. Why do you guys dislike them so much? I think they look cool and different. Do they look like shit in person or something? just curious?

Make your sled your own and don't follow what someone else has done already.

I get PMed weekly about how I painted my belly pans, I have been copying and pasting how on A Chat, If you really want to know I will pm you but if you dont already have the materials on the shelf its not going to be cost effient for you, To do it right, I have not had any problems but this is only my 2nd yr with them, the plus side is no more exhaust stains on the rt side, It just wipes off with a towel after you are done riding. Heres what it looked like last yr and this yr now

The white fighter is sick looking IMO. To do it right it will be costly like hoeve said. Automotive paint is not cheap, and the prep work has to be done correctly for it to last.

To a point I completely agree with you.....but seriuosly ask your self. When you have been out riding how many White Fcats have you actually seen?

Me personally = ZERO

Exactly, where i live, i have NEVER seen a white firecat. Who cares if someone already has a white one, there isnt one around here. Id say go for it if you want to do it!

I agree, how many white firecat are there out there not many. a hell of a lot less than green,orange,red or black. I painted the hood at a local body shop. I would not let anyone sway you on what you want to do. I have never seen another white one.

Now all you gotta do is get rid of those yellow springs and that thing would be kick ass. If not white what color would you do? I agree ive never seen a white firecat besides on here.

Personally i would do a red sled ;)

But i might be a little partial

Bought my sled last november with 817 miles, I painted the hood my own custom mix of ice white and repainted the beak jet black. Then I gave all my suspension to my powdercoater and had it done in black and white. Next I will be getting my seat done, 3 inches of foam added and seat covered in white and black.

I have black and white handgaurds I still have to put on, along with black headlight covers and a 4-wheel kit.
