    Hi Smitty :)
    It's white or maybe light grey. I will keep Walter in mind. Thanks

    My Dad has a Honda 4 wheeler that peeled, Honda replaced the body panels and that has been several years ago and no more peeling.

    I still have my 99 300...those things are all but bulletproof! Guess that is why they stopped making them! :(

    Chet did they give you a guarantee that your new panels wouldn't peel ? I'm just trying to figure out what I want to do when I talk to them. :)

    Yes, Miss_Oak, my 2016 P700 has the same issue and I believe everyone who has that camo pattern is probably having the same problem. Mine started chipping just a few months after I bought it and now it's really looking shabby. When I bought it the salesman said "it's good you're getting the camo pattern, you'll still have a good looking machine long after other colored machines are looking bad",,,yeah, right,,it looks like crap and a lot worse than yours looks,,I'm afraid you're headed downhill with yours as well. Honda sorely needs to do a recall on the camo wrap. Everyone needs to speak up about this issue. I hate that I missed my chance to file it as a warranty item, but I intend to call Honda today and voice my opinion on issuing a recall. I hope everyone who has this issue does the same. They know it's happening to us all and they need to make it right.

    Well I talked to Honda and I talked to my local service manager. They took pictures and are making a report and I will find out next week or the week after if they're going to replace them. They were all very nice to deal with so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. :)

    Great! Have you thought about a solid color instead? They will replace panels for the fix.

    Yeah who knows what percentage of them peel. I just happen to be in the unlucky group.

    I wonder if it's environment, or cleaning products, or something. I live in Michigan, clean it with a pressure washer and dish soap, stored inside and ride in the woods. My plastic is scratched from trees but not any peeling.

    Mine is in a shed 85% of the time, sometimes i leave it out. A cleaning product has never touched it... it was lucky to be rinsed with a water hose twice. Haha The hose was just to knock the dust off. I ride in open country so a tree branch has never even scratched it. No mud ect. on it. It truly couldn't have had a more babied existence. Haha

    Miss Oak, I did not ask about a guarantee on the new panels. I felt fortunate that they were willing to replace them at all. I just got my P1000 back today, it took about 4 days to get back from the dealer once the parts came in. They replaced all the panels on the hood, doors, and bed for no charge. I am very happy, it looks great. Now I need to wash the rest of it. LOL. Sorry I never answered sooner. I work 6 to 7 days a week and do not have time to get on here much.

    I think mine was from exposure to heat and sunlight. It looked like it shrunk, cracked, and then peeled.
