K1600GT New Graphics

Came out pretty good. Back end of bike was hit last fall. Finally got around to changing the graphics from a silver to a charcoal metallic.

Looks great. I definitely like the charcoal metallic. Did you do the wet or dry application method? I have struggled getting it right using dry method.

Rick, wet, and I mean WET. I spray both the bike and the graphic. Just takes a little while to get the air bubbles out but so much easier to adjust and get in the right place. I ordered an extra charcoal metallic (24"x8") for the top case. Made a template out of heavy paper. Took 2 tries to get that right, glad I ordered extra from AutoTrim. Got the idea to go to the darker charcoal metallic from Gary; he likes that combination on the Raptor!
