    Question Has anyone painted their Polaris?

    I bought a used 180 and the the top cover is faded. I was wondering if I could just use a plastic paint and give it some color. Not sure if anyone has had experience with this.

    Re: Has anyone painted their Polaris?

    I was a manufacturing engineer for a while and your question made me think. Why aren't there many, if any, painted items around/in swimming pools? I know you can get a pretty good bond between plastic and paint so I'm thinking that bumps and dings chip it away pretty quick. If you go the paint route read up on it because surface prep is the key to just adequate performance much less submarine duty.
