Default white ski loops

i have looked everywhere and no one makes white ski loops for the stock ski's.I have read guys taping and painting them but i really don't wanna use tape....If anyone has ever painted the loops or skid plates what was your method and how well did it hold up?
I am expecting the paint would crack and peel off but maybe someone has a good suggestion..Thanks

Just a thought, rough-up the ski-loops, sandpaper, sandblast etc. Buy an Adhesion Promoter and something like Krylon for plastic/vynil etc.

I have seen guys restore, redo complete car interiors with his method.

These interiors see extreme temperature differentials and the paint still stays on.

The good "anchor profile" form the sandblasting, coupled with he Adhesion Promoter and the purpose built paint make all the difference.

I want white because i am going with the black and white look and rather pay $60 for a couple ski loops than spending $300+ on ski's....Can always tie orange ribbon on the loop while riding....lol

Could be the difference between hooking a tree or missing it, not to mention you mates riding close past and running them over (lol)

Maybe you can find white heat shrink tubing? I know the black stuff goes up to at least 4 inch diameter and is really tough. Just a thought.

Or even Tool-Dip, in White. it is a can of liquid rubber that you dip a tool a handle in too give it a soft handle, might be a bit slippery though.
