Talking Color change using 3M Vinyl

After two years of riding my blue 2006 DL650 I decided to change its color. I've found great alternative for painting: 3M Carwrap Vinyl. After few hour I've found shop in Poland selling this stuff. I bought piece 2m x 1,5m and started my work.

First I had to deliver vinyl to my friends garage. It wasn't easy but Vee can also be used as truck



Here are some photos before wrapping:









Tools that I needed:



Step 1.
Remove all fairings, remove all stickers and clean fairing surface.





Step 2.
Cut vinyl about 10cm more than fairing. Heat it with heating gun and wrap.





Step 3.
Stick new stickers. I decided to buy stickers with my individual project: 2011 DL650 White with aditional logo "Adventure"



Step 4.
Assembly all fairings.

Efects:





Orange turn signals weren't looking good on white Vee so I replaced them with white.













Everything took about 14 hours. I hope you like it.
Paul

Very impressive work, I like it. I also like how you GIVI engine guards have the wrap around below the headlights - I WANT IT TOO. Do you have pictures on how you made it?

Wait! That's not 2006 Blue (Euclase Silver)? Had it been painted before?

EDIT: Oh, I just noticed your location...must have been different colors that year over there.

That's pretty damned cool! I am always amazed at some of the ideas and creativity people have on this site.
