Coloring a Giant Loop Great Basin

Any thoughts on coloring a Giant Loop Great Basin. I purchased a used one in yellow and it is hideous. I've considered using West Marine paint for inflatables, but after painting my boat I'm not sure it's up to the task. Then again anything is better than yellow.

Thanks

Sure. Vinyl spray "paint" works quite well.
Just need the fabric to be sprayed very clean...

Why????????

Just my humble opinion but I think you will hate it more with vinyl paint than you will the yellow it was intended to be. I just don't see how a spray painted soft bag could possibly look better.

Besides, it'll be behind you!

Could be, but I've thought of painting mine.
My mistake in getting white. It gets dirty easy
and stays that way. If I paint, it will be black....

Put up an offer to trade for black (or whatever color) in the Flea Market.

Paint is a lot easier than a trade.

Vinyl paint works quite well. Some years ago,
I painted a pair of green '64 Mustang seats black.
Five years later they were still fine; and did not
appear to be "painted"...

Re: "falling"; is not for me, my loop is used on

Crashing is for teenagers and nothing is going to make this bag look uglier than it does now. Thanks for the ideas on coloring it. I do have a potential buyer so I may be out of the Giant Loop and into a Nomad anyway. We'll see.

Gonna look like Fido's ass in no time if you paint it. Then you will never be able to sell it. Hell,,,,,,, prolly have a hell of a time giving it away. Seriously, sell or trade it.

But, looks like you are absolutely determined to crap it up so shoot some pics after it's been painted for a few weeks.


And yes, I have used Mar Hyde and various other products to paint/dye dash pads, hard plastics and yes, even seats but trust me,,,,,,,, it'll look fine at first but juss give it a week or three.
