I think it will help if I take the plastic panels off my machine and photograph them next to a yard stick, or something to provide size reference.

That way y'all may have a better idea what I'm dealing with.

One plastic part is blue and has no stickers.

The other five parts are white, and all have stickers. Is it possible these white parts are just clear coat on top of white plastic (no paint)?

From what I can tell, all the stickers/decals are "under" some sort of clear coat.

I have to keep reminding myself that eventually I'll be painting on paint not plastic. That's a strange concept for someone like me who's new to this stuff.


Took it to the mountains yesterday - it performed flawlessly.
