Scratched side panels
« on: 02 September, 2013, 06:28:45 PM »
I was cleaning the bike the other day and the side panels looked like they had been cleaned with brillo pads :172:!!! anyway without wanting all of the hassle of finding the right colour and re painting them I have wrapped them in carbon effect vinyl...Waddya think...sorry about the small piccies cant delete them?

Looks good. :062:

Where did you get the carbon wrap from? How is it applied?

Looking good.
Hope you don't find the engine heat causes them to peel.

Got me thinking now...gonna go and have a look
....I think its an optical illusion, its just the mounting for the shock, you will be saying its clean next :008:
I think they should be far enough away from the heat to be ok

I bought 2metres from a guy on ebay, about £7 I bought it to cover the painted top of the bumper on our estate car, the dog isn't too fussy...then again neither is the wife with the pram, it saves the paint and when you get rid of the car it just peels off. I looked on you tube for how to apply, basically a hairdryer and a bit of patience :001:
