Bike wraps

Has anyone ever done a vinyl wrap on their bike? I'm curious what people that have this done think. Thinking of maybe having mine done.

My Brother and I just did his golf cart and I have to say it was a pain in the . There is definitely an art to it and a golf cart has way less angles and little pieces like bike fairings. I would pay someone to do it next time.

A heat gun will help, experience will get the job done in the end. Get extra material to practice with before getting to the important pieces.

Plasti dip, its way cheaper, if money isn't an issue then go ahead but it's expensive because it's a pain in the .

Why not just pay someone to paint it for you? It's not like there's a lot of things on the bike that need painting.

Oh I will be paying someone to do it. I just like a lot of the designs and stuff you can't get the wraps in. I have been looking at kits from a website calle bikeskinz.con

I've done several. Level of difficulty kind of depends on the graphics. Take your time and it will come out nice. Be sure that you use vehicle wrap material so that it conforms the best. The tank is the hardest part if you are trying to do a one piece wrap on it.

I was looking at the full kits from bikeskinz.com they seem to have a good rep. I don't have the patience to do it myself so I figured I would find a reputable company down in Houston to quote the job
