Wrap or Paint?

Recommended Posts

I picked up some near pristine OEM fairings recently for next to nothing, and thought about using them to change the color of my bike.  The paint is flawless on the fairings, and matches my bike's OEM color.  I'm reluctant to sand and paint them should I need one, and have been looking into vinyl wrap (which allegedly can be removed) as an alternate.  I've done all the on-line research but thought I'd confer with the VFRD SME's before I go any further.

 

Anyone wrap their bike?  How's it hold up?

You can also look into Plasti-dip. Spray it on and peel it off.

There is now spray on vinyl wrap. I can’t remember the name but they claim it can be wet sanded and polished. Comes in metallics also. Comes in spray cans or by the quart.

Yep, Plasti-Dip or Dupli-Colors version of it. Peels right off

Duc2V4,

I looked at PlastiDip and saw that some folks struggled with removal, even when applied thick enough.  Scared me, don't want to end up there.

Sweeper,

Perhaps this spray on vinyl may be the ticket.  I'll look into it.  Thanks.

The goal to removal is making sure its 100% super clean prior to application. Smoother the surface, easier the peel.
