    Adding color to Polar Metalic 2010 R1200RT ??

    Has anyone added stripping or painted color to the Polar metalic R1200RT ? The paint kind of looks dull with no pazzaze & want to dress it up a little.

    Best regards,
    Thanks for the info , but i figured whats the difference what year my color 1200RT was on. I`m sure the color shade didn`t change no matter the year. BUT will remember that next time i ask for the exact year part.

    Thanks! The year may not make a difference if they used the same color on multiple years, but I suspect the model just might.. if they used that color on different models.

    I thought the same thing about my sand beige RT so I added some graphics made by Auto Trim Design. They make custom designs specifically for the RT. They can be ordered in many colors and finishes. I chose a metallic burgundy color to add some pop to the beige. It was relatively easy to install. I used their wet method. It took about two hours.
