    Any tips on how to do this? Its a light blue now and my company color is a burnt orange color.

    Aside from bondoing a few sposts, would I just sandpaper-primer-paint-clear coat?

    The best suggestion anyone could give you would be for you to get yourself a Scag.

    If it's plastic, fiberglass.... flexable material.... well then you'll want to use a good paint that is made for that application. I don't know what your means of painting are. But here is the best way I have found to do it for my own plastics.

    Might clean it with Acetone before painting.
