When I first seen the horrible mark on my new 1026R, I felt sick. I used a palm sander when I was building my snow cab, and some how I had gotten too close to the back fender and left deep scratches on the top near the rops. I immediately tried to rub it out, but it was too much. How could I have been so stupid to let this happen? I know this summer I will probly get a few more, but with it sitting in my shop with only 3+ hours on it, waiting for more snow, it HURTS! Does anyone know if I can repaint over this plastic fender, and make it look right?
KHOP:cry:

Sorry to hear that. Best fix for repairing plastic damaged like that is to whip out your CC and order a new one. Bummer...

Trying to repair/paint you may end up making it worse. Could always make the other side match it.

The first one is the hardest...the color is not painted on so painting to repair will not really work.

Creative use of decals maybe?

If it's near the door maybe this one (thanks Matt:laugh:)

Just hit up your dealer for more of those "business card" decals. With all of my implements combined, I swear there must be over a dozen of them on my stuff. When I get some daylight, I'll share my first scratch also! :good2:

I have repaired some scuffs on my atv plastic with heat. I used a propane torch. You have to be sure not to over heat. I have no clue how it would work here. Might just be better leaving it.

The first week after i bought a new truck in 2010, some guy tried to break into it. I rubbed out everything but a 2 inch scratch that went down to the primer. After 2 years, i dont even notice it anymore. But that was hard to over look when it happened.

You might want to enquire at a body shop. I know that they repair plastic bumpers on cars all the time.

Good luck.

Hey Gizmo

I'M THE BIG BOOB HERE. No doubt, I'll mess up again and put another scratch somewhere else that will take my mind off of this first one. KHOP

You're are no different than the rest of us. At least it wasn't a dent someplace. Our tractor(s) normally looks like it's been rode hard and put away wet (dirty).

Touch Up Paint

I've always bought the little bottle from the dealer of touch up paint for the cars and trucks I've owned. I'd get a small brush and a small can of JD paint and just, carefully, dab the scratch(s). The other thing about scratches on a tractor, it gives it "character".
