Over the week-end I went riding and rolled my four wheeler. It is a 2009 Sportsman 550 XP. The pod and fenders are scratched. Got lucky and didn't break anything. Me or the machine. I bought it new in 2009 and I thought the dealer said the type of fender material Polaris started using in 2009 was easier to repair than the old plastic Polaris had been using. Does anyone know how to repair the scratches? Some scratches are very deep.

Thanks

If I am not mistaken it is auto paint on it. I would think you would need to fill it in with body filler and then repaint. The older ones were just colored plastic.

If your plastics are painted you would have to sand/fill/sand the scratches till smooth & repaint. Just like a plastic bumper on a car. If they are bare plastic you can use a heat gun to CAREFULLY melt the scratches and blend them back into the plastic.
