Super stoked to be at this point in fatherhood! :D
This will be my first project and i'm keeping it pretty simple.

Picked up a curb side Perego Rzr 900 in unknown condition.

Brought it home, bought a battery and everything worked! Speed 1, 2 and reverse!

Finally getting around to this this week.

Plans:
Get it to work like regular
Clean it up/Restore it
Paint it red/black
Install LED emergency lights and maybe a siren
No Upgrades to motor/drivetrain since my son is only 1.5yr old.
Maybe add headlights or fogs and tail lights


Picking it up, Here's how I found it! No battery, Obviously left outside and plastic faded with stickers all coming off.

Image

It barely fit in the SUV.... :o

Image

Its not int he best condition...

Peg perego, Rzr 900

Alright, So lets get some before photos of it!

BE SURE TO CLICK THE PHOTOS, SMALL VERSIONS DON'T DO THEM JUSTICE


Image

Image

Image


Alright so let's plan out the lights. Fogs? Headlights?

Image

Let's photoshop the idea...

Image

Add some headlights in there too....

Image


So the plan is to add some LED Strobe lights in the front, and the back.

Add a led strip on the front as a fog light. And maybe I can do some headlights too?

TEARDOWN
I broke the headlight lenses. D'OH!

Image

Image

9310 headlight lenses?

Image

Used a heat gun to remove the stickers

Image

And then Goo Gone to remove the glue residue.

Image

Then I started scuffing it all with some steel wool I had near by.

Image

So I made a mistake.... I didn't wash the panels. Luckily I started with some small ones and learned that the paint was NOT going to work.
It beaded up and looked terrible because the Goo Gone residue was still all over the plastic not letting it adhere.

Image

Looks terrible

Image


So at this point, I have to wash all the panels with dawn and sand those I painted back down to plastic.

The driver rear fairing (like in the photo) was brittle and broke into pieces.

I had considered driving an hr and buying an f150 in good condition but I had already started this one so figured I would save it for next year.

So, I bought these!

Some lights. I'll rewire the harness.

Image

A siren horn combo with 3 large buttons and colors which should work well for my son.

Image

And, I bought him a Q! It's an important part of a fire truck siren so this should be really cool!

Image


STAY TUNED!

Great project! If you click my projects link in my signature I have a similar Rzr800 that I did many of those mods too. It won't directly apply but you can see some mistakes to avoid ;) :lol:
