Several weeks ago someone asked about painting a new wing. I said I was going to try wrapping. Hopefully here are a few pictures of the bike in the last stages of getting the wrap on. The person doing the wrap did a very good job and I'm very happy with the outcome.
It started out red and as you can see will now be yellow.

WOW looks like the installer is doing a great job. it's hard to tell from the pictures but it looks very nice. Did you check to see the price difference between paint and wrap? I have never looked into it but wonder how it will hold up as time goes by? I checked about having a wrap put on my pickup, I wanted the lower foot done to make the truck look two tone, they wanted 2500 dollars and so I decided two tone was not in my future for the pickup.
anyway good job

Looking very good, didn't know that was possible. Keep us informed on how it holds up.

No reason to think it won’t last a long time if it’s done properly with a good product. Wraps work great to change as well as to protect. You’ve probably seen many cars and didn’t even realize they’d been wrapped.

I’m considering a wrap myself this year since the Satin Silver is so ridiculous to protect.

A good wrapper/sign company can wrap just about anything. I’ve had helmets done, too.

Protect paint and/or change color. Completely removable with no damage.

Wrap

Sorry it took so long to reply. (Needed to work)
Anyway the cost of the wrap is about a third to half of what paint is. The person wrapping the bike said that the wrap should last eight to ten years if the bike is in a garage. As mentioned earlier the wrap can be taken off with the original paint underneath.
The person doing the wrap took off all the plastic and did a very good job. The mirrors were a little tricky. As far a durability, I'll let you know in eight to ten years.
