RXL EDGE 8869 thThe popularity of our RXL hood conversion kits for Indys from 1981 to 1997 has owners of Indy Edge models wanting the same for their sleds. I offer an inexpensive way to change the look of your Edge. I am now able to supply our own RXL retro graphic kit for your Indy Edge 2001 to 2006. These are the Indys with the smooth plastic bumpers.

The seven piece graphic kit is made from high quality printed vinyl with a fuel-resistant clearcoat. The colors are red and white. The graphics will look best on darker color hoods. Apply the adhesive vinyl pieces with my instructions or have a sign company do it.

I hired world famous snowmobile photographer Wayne Davis to shoot the Edge graphics. He does all of Yamaha’s photography and a bunch for Polaris and Ski-Doo too. 

I’m no longer going to pester you with progress reports because the kit is done and has gone out to the magazines. Thanks for watching this happen.

Last Thursday I approved the changes to Indy Edge RXL graphics and placed the first order. I will be shipping soon, so if you want one let me know. The kit costs $189 and shipping to most places will be about $19. This Wednesday I’m taking the hood to world famous snowmobile photographer Wayne Davis for some studio shots then the hood will be returned to All Power Sports who kindly lent me the hood. I’ll share the photos with you.

Now you can see how this product will look. I think it will be popular. This design will look best on dark hoods (blue and black). I’m not ready to produce them yet because upon the first application design bugs appeared. That is being corrected now. If you’d like to reserve a set from the first batch of 5, three are left.

Yesterday, after months of tooth pulling, I finally approved the Edge RXL graphics and ordered the first batch of five kits. These will be digitally printed on giant computers and clear coated for lasting protection (until you hit your next tree.)

The graphics have to be applied with the water/soap method. I will have instructions (with photos) but if you don’t want to risk screwing up the installation-have a sign company do it for you. That way if they screw up you can make them pay for the replacement parts.

Midnight Blue Belly Pan

blue rxl pan wrap

Most guys would like a blue pan to match their RXL hoods. I found out it is possible without painting the poly plastic (an iffy thing). I asked a “wrap company” and they recommended a High-Tac vinyl with a gloss laminate. The gloss finish would match the hood and look terrific. The extra adhesion from the High-Tac compensates for the micro pebbly surface. You see “wrap” every day on trucks and commercial vehicles with multi-colored graphics--some with photos.

I haven’t measured how much wrap would be required for a pan but let’s guess 48” x 48”. High-Tac is $11 a square foot so just the material would cost $176. Application is another matter-it is difficult to do-especially on a pan with all the contours. I would advise you to witness the application of wrap on YouTube. If you want to surge ahead take a color sample to a wrap company. Either buy DYI material or have them do it. Their labor cost could run from $200 to $300, maybe more.

Keep in mind we are talking vinyl here. Those nasty tree stumps and saplings could create tears, etc. The same goes for paint. I thank Mike Schnobrich from Cushing MN for asking about this.
