Anyone used bikeskinz before?

I thought some of these looked pretty cool, anyone ever messed with them.

True and the guys in the video are professionals. I actually contacted the owner because it looked similar to putting on window tint , he told me it was nothing like it.

i've seen two shops do that kinda stuff, (light em up, and graphics to go) and it's alot of spray water with a heat gun, and a whole lot of steady hands and patience

It is VERY hard for an inexperienced person to work vinyl over curves.
If you mess up just once, you will have creases, bubbles, etc.

550 is alot for a messed up sticker...

Have a shop install it if, you decide against having an airbrush.

one of the members on my team uses stuff from spastic design its just dirtbike graphics really but he does it in more then a couple pieces so if you do screw up its not so costly, guy kurt who owns the comp is a cool dude and supports the industry

there is another company that i saw making the same stuff named FJ designs or something, they had a bike in the FMF booth in indy this year but cant remeber the exact name of the people. If i get a second i will look in my pictures and find it.
