This project was inspired by a friend, we had been discussing summer projects, I wanted a different color for my sled and he came up with Mountain Doo (ski doo- mountain dew). Anyways, I like the color green, don't like yellow so much, not saying I'm a cat fan or anything. This is what I came up with.

I'll start off with a photoshopped pic I used for ideas

This is the original before photoshop. What you see here is the result of last year's project.
I'm not sure if I'll go with the Mountain Doo graphics or not. That's starting too sound kind of cheesy, but it is what started the whole thing in the first place. Dumb idea?

Here's some for fun: This is what it looked like when I first bought it three years ago as a 440

last one. The first thing I did when I got it was take off all the stickers as I'm not a fan of that look. I mean, I'm not driving an Amsoil you know? I also took off the huge risers and sold them which I regret (see what's on there now?)

So last summer an 02 440mxzx turned into a 440/670 with a 151.
Here's a link if you want to see that

work in progress, swapping out the belly pan for a black one. Green would have been cool but I don't think paint would hold up very good on the belly pan

I got a clear hood to replace the one I had squashed at Vail Pass last winter. After a lot of debating I decided to go with a design that wouldn't follow the contours of the hood. I wanted something different, and everybody does something that follows the lines. Silly string was a key part of my design

finished product. Painting the inside gives a nice glossy appearance with no clear coat. Also protects the paint!

coming along.. Got the front springs powdercoated black and took the stickers off the shocks. I think I'll leave the ski doo on the front, it's kind of hidden anyways
