    I have to change all of plastic body (hood, fenders) parts. Is there any easy way to replace them without remove the cab?

    These are just a couple of M Gator pictures (in case someone wonder what it looks like). I used these as a reference when I restored mine.

    Started up the engine the first time today.



    Costs $2,229.70 until today. She is a runner.

    Most expensive parts will be plastic body parts. I am not sure that I will replace them at this time. I may do plastic welding on the plastic body parts. If it does not work out, then I will replace them at that time.

    My front left tire had no air and I could not inflate it since the tire was out of the bead. So I had to remove the wheel/tire. Then I discovered this.

    My initial thought was the mechanic wanted to wider the track. Then I put it the wheel back without washers but the rim contacted the steering end rod so I have to put washers back (for now) until I can find new front rims/tires.

    IMG_0627.jpg

    The middle tires do not touch the ground after I inflated tires to 5 PSI. Then I checked tire size. The front tires are the same size as back tires,
    25x13.00-9. That answered my suspicious. Now I have to look for 2 new front wheels/tires.

    She got some stitches on her hood and fenders.

    I plan to use plastic welder to weld it, cut zip-ties on the outsides and sand smooth. Then use Raptor bedliner to spray underneath (since I have to spray it on the bed anyway). If it holds up well, I might do on the outsides as well.

    The plastic body parts are quite expensive. The entire set costs around $900.

    I will sand it down, Bondo to smooth the outside. I will either repair it or plastic wrap. The inside will be spray with Raptor bed liner.
