Hi Jayjay, no Idea on cost but also thought about this when I first saw it a few weeks back. Then I thought about rapping my existing as have seen it done on cars and you would never know. just also wondered how it might react with a drop or two of petrol.Has anyone seen this tank yet? Or have any idea on prices etc for it? This is what I'm basing my whole design around in my head!
Aha but next week if you wrap it you could change it to a different style hypothetically!!!you're not the only one wondering! Curious though if simply stripping and finishing the stock tank will cost less...
Fair point but dependant on the the look one is after. I'm of the opinion that a wrap will never give the depth of polished metal, then again a wrap will work better if you is looking for say a change in colour or perhaps a pattern...Aha but next week if you wrap it you could change it to a different style hypothetically!!!
You may be surprised, due to my previous job I have a critical eye so to speak however I have seen this kind of finish close up, in fact on a door mirror on a VW golf Mk7R they had replicated the wing mirror finish of an Audi RS 4 I honestly feel one would not know.Fair point but dependant on the the look one is after.

Why, in that case wrapping is no different than adding any other addition to your bike that was not fitted as standard is it?wrapping...really? never understood how folks think a wrap can replace the real thing. It's like you're just lying every time you ride.
You can look for a Plasti Dip dealer in your area.Does anyone know of any companies that have experience of applying wrap to motorcycle fuel tanks and other bodywork parts?
@gmac that tank looks awesome! Honestly shocked that a wrap looks that good.I wrapped my bike a few years ago. Spilled petrol never harmed it. The bike looked great and got a lot of comments. Paint underneath was kept in pristine condition.
Here is a pic of the wrapped tank.
I will wrap my Scrambler!
Did you wrap the fenders as well? How did the wrap hold up to rock chips and such?I wrapped my bike a few years ago.
İs it easy wraping plastic parts? Doesnt it need high heat to stick on the surface?Here is a pic of the full bike. Fenders, faring, tank, headlight, other bits all wrapped. The bike is candy blue underneath. The wrap is much more resistant to chips and rocks than the paint.
I'm thinking I'll do a silver strip down the middle of the tank to match the scrambler side panels on the tank and do both fenders in the same silver... maybe
