Awesome! Looks stock, but the metallic finish gives it a nice flair!

What kind of decals are you putting on? Design? Color?

^A little too much white I think^ (nice edit, btw)

I think it'd look awesome if you could get some Indy 500 decals that looked something like Dragon decals! That kind of ripped/torn looking script.

Get some decals like first-year Dragon ones. It doesn't need the 'Indy' or even '500', just put 'Dragon':

Looks great and I like the color. If it was mine, I would either add some kind of graphic "500" lettering or maybe just pinstripe?

I wouldn't bother with a Indy or Polaris logo as virtually the entire snowmobile community already knows what model it is. When I repainted my VMax a couple years ago, all I did was add a little accent pinstriping.
