Nice little touch
« on: May 31, 2020, 08:46:44 PM »
Got the idea off a fellow tiger owner, I've just wrapped the beak and had some wrap left so I thought I'd do the side plastic inserts. I think it looks pretty nice, nice little touch to break the plastic up.

You should wrap the frame then intimate to people that you have secret one off factory protype carbon fibre frame.   :001: :001:

That looks really good.  Please excuse my ignorance, I know nothing about vinyl wrapping but how dd you get the material to contour to the shape of the numbers, if you know what I mean.

It's the first time I've ever used a wrap before, I just used the Mrs hairdryer to get it hot and contour to the 800 logo but it has lost some of its definition with the hot sun recently, I think I higher quality wrap would hold its shape better.
