Can I join your club?

I just picked up this 08 Model an hour ago! It runs and rides great but tree branches have scuffed the fenders pretty good. I plan to wet sand them and bring back the shine. So far I love it though and it is very comfortable.

Congratulations! I suggest you get familiar with the search function on here and start to figure out what you want to do for your tire replacement (seriously that might take a month or two)

Where are you from?

Thanks! The stock tires will hopefully last a few months but I don't need to decide what to buy, for when I do. I live in Central Point,OR but am from Louisiana.

I actually have a pretty good trick, if you can get the fenders back to smooth

It is called Pledge Floor Care Multi Surface Finish

It is an acrylic floor finish, there are several pledge products that are close, but you want the multi surface that is an acrylic. It will be clear not cloudy.

Here is a link to a guy that did a similar process check out the pic of his quad.

http://www.hondaforeman.com/145-atv-...shine-new.html

If anyone decides to do this use a sponge and go slow. It will make bubbles if you go to fast. Make sure the quad is washed and dry or dirt will get locked in the acrylic. He waxed afterwards which I have not done but sounds smart.

It leaves a finish on your quad like it is waxed so dirt and mud comes off easier and it sheets water. Minimum of 4 or 5 coats.

Even if you dont want to sand out your scratches this will put a nice shine on your quad.
