    Much better than Red. Romic has made a name for itself, time for a color option.

    How do you do that?

    Is it as simple as just painting the spring, will it effect it?

    Nice color; hope it works cause I'd like to paint my own spring the same color. I'd like to see a picture of the spring after several rides. I'm a skeptic, though . . . so I called Plasti-Kote and asked them about applying this paint to a shock spring. I was told that this paint would not hold up to the flex of a spring -- and will crack and chip. This product was meant to be used on a car bumper, which "flexes" much less than your shock.

    Please update us after you ride the shock on the dirt a couple of times. Thanks.

    It's a spring, what is the worst thing that can happen? The whole process takes about 20 mins. Each coat dries very quick. So big deal, the way I see it, spray it again when it chips.
