Carbon Fiber Wrap

Think I did a good job keeping it classy as an accent. My first time doing this. If you are patient and plan it out you shouldn't have an issue.

Looks great. I've learned a lot playing around with vinyl wrap this winter. Adds a nice flare to the bike. Did you wrap the front fender with one piece? What brand/style carbon fiber wrap did you use? I've been using Avery wrap and like their Carbon Fiber High Gloss D 2.0.

I am using Vvivid vinyl. I tried to do front fender in one piece but had to do it in 3. One each side then top. You wouldn't be able to tell looking at it.

There are so many online resources for buying this but I would like to remove some of the risk so if any of you are willing to publish links to where you bought from I would be appreciative

@charlie3133 , this is the company I've been using. After doing my homework I've stuck exclusively with Avery Supreme wrap. All wraps have their ups/downs and require a little different working/application technique. This company, if your order is >$100, shipping is free.

I used 3M 1080 vinyl wrap purchased on Amazon. I first bought this sample swatch kit https://www.amazon.com/Wrap-Vinyl-10...%2C198&sr=8-44 looking at colors and such on your screen may not accurately show what you are buying but with this swatch kit you will know exactly what each color and finish is like.
