Brian,
I have that picture that was in Dirt Wheels of Robs Predator in my profile pics. The predator looks sweet with cut plastics, but i live in Seattle and it rains to much around here for me to cut mine.

If you want to see pictures of someone that has cut theirs, go look at the pictures in QuadJunkies profile. She cut hers a little different.

Are they pics of the "pointy style? I have a pic of a Predator someone sent me when I was trying to decide on my cut... I like all the dif cuts, but I wanted mine a little different,the pointy look was a little much for me.. Youwill have to post a pic in your profile for all us to see when you you cut them! :) TINA

i have a pic in my profile with a pic of my race cut fenders. based my cut on raths quad. but mine is a little differnt. I also found that scotch brite pads you can attach to a drill work really well for rounding the newly cut fenders to make them look a lot nicer

local buzz, did you paint your red front plastic, if yes what kind of paint did you use?

Yes, i did paint the front piece. The paint i used is made by Krylon and its called Fusion. Its specifically made for painting plastic. You can buy it an walmart type retail store. Its very simple to do. you do not have to sand the piece to prep it. just clean it good with an ammonia based household cleaner, then spray it on. I sprayed 2 coats of clear over it to make it shine and make it more durable.

I also liked the way Local's plastics looked. I copied it matter of fact. I just finished yesterday. I also cut mine though. I think it looks ALOT better with the red plastic on the front.

I think if you just paint it with the Fusion paint it will not be as durable as compared to adding the clear coat over it. That's why i put the clear coat on it. it made it a little tougher. I do have one small chip in mine now but thats it. It has held up well.

Try Krylon Triple Thick Acrilic Glaze and then a coat of clear over the Krylon Fusion paint. Holds up really well
