Who does vinyl wrap?

Every shop ive called said they don't do "small stuff" I'm looking to get a few panels on my XR650R wrapped in 3M CF wrap. If you guys have any suggestions please let me know.

No one wants to touch MC parts because of the sharp curves. the wrap wrinkles upon those curves, leaving a nasty looking finish.

You could buy the stuff online and try to apply it yourself....

Yeah the same reason shops wont touch them is the same reason i wont. I just figured a shop that specialized in wrapping would have it figured out by now.

This is an old thread, but maybe someone still does it. I searched around early this year, but had no luck.

I just dropped the headlight and side panels off at innovative designs on 529/Eldridge. We will see how it goes.

I'm still looking for a real good shop that does this in Houston or in the greater Houston areas. Seems like all the hydrographic shops are in DFW areas

Here's another option, plasti dip.

This is a good read as well: http://speed.academy/plastidip-how-t...ice-spray-car/
