aftermarket plastics or paint

my wife is interested in some aftermarket plastics for "her" rhino. nothing extreme. she just wants a color change. I was wondering what brand everyone uses and likes. I've noticed that maier are cheaper than fullbore, but wanted to get everyone's opinion. or should I just take it to a body shop for paint?

get a set of fiberglass from greenmachine, you get a set that look like fullbores with a choice of color and it;s waaaaaaaaay cheaper in price.
and you can sell your stockers for $$$$ to help pay for them.

the fiberglass come in a variety of colors and a scratch buffs out easier on fiberglass then plastic that is 3 times as exspensive. It will crack if you crash it, but so does plastic and the fiberglass piece can be replaced far cheaper
