    Hello,I have snowbear plow markers that are sunfaded,so I got them looking bright again. I thought I'd post a before & after of my plow marker I restored to better then new looking. I think it's better then before anyway(alot more visable) I only got 1 done so far.
    Heres what I did if any1 wants to know.

    lightly sanded (120grit),cleaned with iso., painted with florescent marker paint, painted with reflective clear coat, added a piece of white dot reflective tape.

    no one should have dull markers :nono:

    Have a happy holidays everyone

    Looks good. I thought about the DOT tape. I was concerned that it would reflect too bright from the headlights. If it does, use red tape.

    Thanks everyone! FYI it was 180grit i used not 120. I found 220 to be to fine 180 was just right. I will see if there is too much reflection from the white tape & let everyone know. I just painted the 2nd marker tonight, so i'll have to wait till morning till I put it on.
