Polaris Slingshot Paint Job: Adding Flames
This Polaris Slingshot paint job came in for an updated look to the front end. Instead of the rebel flags, the owner wanted black flames to cover the front.
This is the first Slingshot we’ve had the pleasure of working on. It’s in between a motorcycle and a sport car, and is classified as a three-wheeled motorcycle. The owner came from over 3 hours away in Virginia to get the custom painted flames painted on it. He said he loves riding it through the mountains and it can go up to 150 mph!

Tim carefully peeled off the rebel flag decals using with a heat gun, and sanded down the entire area in the front. He taped off the lines for the flames with some fine line tape, and painted them black with the white trim, as you can see below.

Different artists and shops will have different styles of flames. You can see the style of Tim’s flames here, and he can, of course work with the design you want. To match the current paint scheme, we painted the flames black with a thin white border on all sides of the front end. It goes perfectly with the rest of the Slingshot’s colors.
