|leifindr||Yesterday I bought some Carbon Fiber Film at a local store and attached to the muffler cover. A little tricky to both heat, stretch and apply with only two hands, but I think the result is pretty desent. These covers are not exactly pretty from the factory, and since they are close to the passengers foot rest I thought a little extra protection wouldn't hurt.|

I wrapped my 2005 Wee's tupperware about 3 years ago. Lots of riding and it has been sitting outside more often the last couple years. Still looks good.

Plasti dip will not last like vinyl, regardless of how much prep, cleaning and waxing you do. I have done my entire bike several times.
The ease of install and forgiveness of plasti-dip is far less infuriating though!

Spray bottle with rubbing alcohol. Cleaned everything, sprayed with alcohol, wiped it down again, waited about ten minutes and got started. The key really seems to be light coats. Spray a light, light, coat, let it dry for about 10 minutes and do it again, again, and again. The first two to three coats are going to look spotty but it will even out as you continue to spray. Supposedly the light coats enable you to peel it off easier. I had one section that ran so I peeled it and started again. It came right off.
When it gets dirty I wipe it down with a soft rag and some detailing spray. It cleans right up.

I didn't remove the sub-frame to paint. I loosened and moved what I could and took a lot of time to mask off the area. Making sure to paint at certain angles to hit all visible parts. If you remove the seat you will see the silver of the frame but otherwise, all the silver is coated.
At first it was just an effort to see how it would look. It has held up so well I will spend some money on other farkles before I do anything more permanent.
