It was much easier to start with the fairing on the bike - this allows you to pull and stretch and be aggressive with the vinyl. I took it back off to finish all the inside edges on the work bench.
I think you may have stumbled into a side business

AWESOME WORK!!!

So, I mentioned in a previous post that I was giving it a try with wrapping. I like the white color, just wanted to add a bit of color. So, here she is. Whatcha all think? I'm not sure about it. I like it but ......

I'd mistake your bike for a police bike if not really paying attention. Red and Blue with some Hi-Vis.
I like the Hi-Vis - especially against a darker color than white.

It looks better in person. I'm just not sure about the highlighter yellow stripes on the sides of the bike, especially the bottom of the tank covers. I'm thinking about removing the ones on the tank cover altogether. The replacing the others on the side with a blue & red stripe to replace the remainder of the floro ones. If that makes any sense, lol.

I bought a sample pack of all the different colors and am contemplating doing my whole bike but after seeing yours maybe I'll try some accent graphics first, I'm afraid the vinyl, being soft, will scratch easily and end up not looking so good in the long run.

UPDATE: Been too busy with life and the upcoming holidays to spend any time on the project. That should change after Christmas as I plan to get a lot more, if not all of it, done between then and New Years! Stay tuned!
