The scoops have both convex and concave moulding so it took a lot of patience and a little whisky. I will redo the one scoop again, it has one crease on the side. 

My buddys Suzuki was done in chrome which I learned was one of the hardest materials to wrap.

Looks good. What are the brackets on the bars for? I'd say they need camouflaging too, while you're at it.

Could suddenly find yourself with a small "start up " business there, with potential for world wide franchises !

Those are from the bark busters. Could wrap them, don’t want to look to posh or I won’t be able to forget the keys in the bike!

Yeah, I almost ripped off one of the panels during application. You really have to be patient

I took it out last night and was happily surprised with the new look from the saddle

I am redoing the left scoop this cold weekend. Peeling the carbon fibre Mac-tac off the painted panel was easier than I thought. 27537A58-7D49-4A1F-BFBE-3D65959B446A.jpeg.1855b2323a9eff7239dc9a7763b2da41.jpeg

Rewrapped the panel tonight. It had been awhile since I did this, again with patience and a heat gun it worked out. 

I will trim the excess off and put it back on later.  

Still messy outside with salty snow melting. Not going anywhere soon!A1E826A6-E5B7-48D9-B3CC-ECBD6D025E48.jpeg.7ed974c6a49c727f0d2b5af8623a4d0d.jpeg

Finally did something with that grey section of the engine cowl. 

That should be it for the carbon fiber work. It’s a wrap!

So before I did the cowl on the 750, I bought a small set of bark busters for the other bike so I could fit it for some Hippo hands in the cold weather. 

Jeffprince mentioned putting carbon fiber on the other set on the Honda, but these ones were asking for them.
