Custom black & white wrap

Listen, I hate to break it to you but what you call "love" is just a chemical reaction that compels animals to breed. It hits hard, then it slowly fades, leaving you stranded in a failing marriage. I did it. Your parents are gonna do it. Break the cycle. Rise above. Focus on motorcycles.

Nice, how hard was it to do the wrap?

Stunning new look buddy! Personally, (you're gonna hate me) I prefer the colour before!

Looks so good! The other mods compliment it nicely!

How much did that cost you if you don't mind me asking?

Nah nothing wrong with that, it's all subjective. I liked the previous look too of course, I just like to switch stuff up sometimes, and I work in a vinyl shop so this was a side project for me. I will probably end up pulling off the stripes and doing some other graphics a few months down the road lol. I've always liked the red version of the anniversary edition graphics, like this: https://s1.cdn.autoevolution.com/ima...on-video_5.jpg - I may replicate that.

Thank you!

It only cost me the raw materials. I did all the work myself, part of my job is wrapping vehicles (done a bunch of cars, a few boats, trucks, etc.). A 5'x15' roll of the satin white wrap was 130 from our wholesale supplier, and the stripes I printed on clear wrap we had in stock. So it didn't cost me that much, in dollars at least, took around 14.5 hours total. Was a fun/challenging little side project, spent a few hours after work each evening for about a week.

Hi Jay, The replica is what I would do! Wow it is gorgeous, in fact, if you do end up doing a replica wrap, I definitely want pictures and the wrap measurements. I may try and buy it here in the UK or you could give me a price for all the wrap and UPS it to me in the UK?

Ya I think that red anniversary edition looks nice. It will be a while before I do that though, I just spent 14.5 hours doing these graphics lol I'm gunna enjoy it for a bit before I tackle redoing it.

I will of course upload pictures if I do end up replicating the anniversary graphics. I could give you dimensions of the graphics fitted for the R3 so you could get them made somewhere local, or I could even print you a copy of the graphics and mail them to you if you'd like, but you'd still have to get your fairings plain white somehow, either by wrapping, painting or buying some chinese fairings or something. The striping is a separate layer from the satin white background, so I would keep the white as is and only remove the black striping, then print the red & black of the anniversary graphics and put them on top of the white.
