Edge paint

I've got a '02 egde 600. The trailing arms and other front steel components are in need of a fresh paint job. I would like to blast them this year, paint, and probably clear coat them. Where can I get the right color paint? Does Polaris sell it? Or is this a bad idea, should I do powder coat instead?

Trailing arms are yellow, and the front springs are blue.

Can paint arms, but will have to PD springs. Springs flex too much for paint.

I also have a 2002 polaris edge x that is blue and yellow too. I want to powder coat all of the radius rods. Does anyone know what color of powder coat I should get to match?

Look up the part number for your specific trailing arm here:

You may be able to find Polaris' paint code that you can take to an auto body shop and get some of that color mixed for you.

2006 Arctic Cat Crossfire 7
2002 Polaris RMK 800
2001 Polaris Indy 500

You should be able to match colour with auto paint in your automotive parts store (in spray cans)
