Did you use clearcoat and wet sand them?

Looks clean, what times are you running at the 1/4? 1/8?

i slighty wet sanded with some 1000 grit to give it a tiny scratched surface. no clear, the guy that told me about said that he has had it on his bike for 2 years with no clear and still looks like it did the day he did it.



iv only ran my bike once and it was in the high 10s low 11s because i did not launch at all and did a slow roll and go. shes my daily and i dont need to be her at the track, i do it enough on the street

Hmm, I'll have to get a hold of 1000grit and give it a try again when I have my turn signals off again. Those times 1/4 mile or 1/8 mile? Your not running that strap on the street are you?

Post time slips plz.
LOL so then why was it strapped in the pics?
When I tried mine, I just did one coat, worked fine. I didn't have the right sandpaper at the time though and I really wanted to ride so I just got some Acetone and wiped it all off. I'll give it another try eventually.
