In that case this is what you'll have to do, at least this is what I did for football helmets in college, and we used car paint sprayers. First get a ton of paint thinner and remove the current paint. If there is a clear coat, which there probably is you may want to call a body shop and ask if this will take it off. If it will, just pour that paint thinner onto the top(two cans should be plenty) and take a old T-shirt and start rubbing it away untill it's gone. After you do this you will want to buy the sprayers I talked about, a good one is anywhere from $175 to $250 at Sears. If you do not want to buy the motor to pressurize the spray you can rent one. After this you should get the color you need, red, but you will probably have to mix it on the spot with a few other elements (not sure what but I had my hood repainted and they said they mix the paint there with something to get a real good match since its hard to get it exact strait out of the can). After you do this paint a few coats. Let dry and then add the clear coat for portection. This would be a fun project and you probably save a couple hundred bucks doing it yourself (I'm guessing total cost of doing it yourself is $350 with rental of the presurizer). Of course there is the self satisfaction too knowing you did it. Good luck and keep us posted.rdb said:Apparently it is not vinyl. It is fiberglass.
