Sure we always like to see pics
This is them , I rode the bike home after delivery. Had to readjust the tank, so I thought that since it is an 06 I would freshen up there mounts for the tank..
Now my next project is a new set of pipes. they are getting a little blue and need to put baffles in. Way too loud for me ( I wear hearing aids due to being a pilot) so just a little muffled will help...
That is one standout flame bike, and I like the old school new school look. Same question as asked before where did you get the 3m protector?
What pipes do you have?
You can get sheets or rolls online, search 3M Clear bra
JR runs a really cool gel p-pad that stays stuck really well.
If the pad and fender are clean, there's no rub.
Personally not a big fan of cups... seems no matter what, something rubs.
Just my ,02
Gorgeous paint, really pops.
I put the 3m on if ya take your time it comes out perfect my pillion sticks vey well actually it's tough to remove
Is that permanent?
If it is marred by the pad, can it be removed/replaced?
Its removable, its like a big decal
Hey Kevin, I just bought a 4'x12" roll to do my rear fender. I like to have extra in case I mess it up lol. Anyways, did you lay a fresh coat of wax down before the 3M?
It's 3m clear bra Donna and Derek sell it sore cut it will peel off, I'm sure goo b gone will need to be used afterwards tho no big deal
Yes I did and used warm soapy water take your time it will come out nice, really only took me maybe an hour start to finish and don't put the rear seat on for about 24 hours let it set up
Ok cool. I plan to cover where the single seat cups rest as well. Trying to prevent any further marring.
Use 2 pieces of ya do it that way it will be easier
Exactly what i was thinkimg too. One long piece will be harder to get perfect. Did you use a little heat gun action to shrink it carefully?
I only used heat and very little after it was flat and smooth just to help dry it
Did you use your hair dryer?
No I have a damn heat gun, the hair dryer is my daughters
There is a place here in Bixby, OK called White Glove. they specialize in clear protective wraps for exotic cars. called them up and found pout that they have the thickest clear wrap \, so I had them do my rear fender and gas tank. they charged be 75 bucks to install it and it was well worth the 75 as this stuff is hard to apply. Heat gun its is not fun on a new paint...
