Faded plastic gas tank

Recommended Posts

Help! I'm in need of advice on how to restore the color back to the gas tank on my oil xr250. It was once red but now is faded to a weird orange color. It has a few scuffs but is in great overall condition. Do I attempt to paint it or just get a tank cover , or ???

First scrape off oxidized plastic with razor blade. Then wet sand in steps from about 600 grit down to 2000 grit. Polishing compound will take it the rest of the way. Or you can pay about $200 to have it done professionally. If your gonna run oem tank stickers, you must air out and coat the inside of the tank or the stickers will only last days.
