Question track wraps

TrackWraps - Born In The Paddock

I am seriously considering doing this rather than painting my new racer. I can do it for half the money and do a cool scheme too. I was thinking about doing the yellow and the carbon fiber for my black accents and numbers. Anyone done this before. I know its going to be a pain in the ass and I will have to have a lot of patience. I do have a heat gun for thoes tricky contours. Any thoughts?

Depends how much money you have. If your a cheapass like me..........then I'd go with the wrap. I've heard good things from the wraps. Not specifically from THIS company but in general people I've talked to seem to like them.

Plus you gotta realize........it's a race bike. It's not meant to look pretty.......but to race. Give it a try. If you don't like it........you only spent a hundred bucks.

It's a pain in the ass unless you have done it a few times... odds are you will screw up the first one somewhere...

But like was said it's only a track bike... shit primer it! 10 bucks for two cans...

I'm with ya in sentiment. Some race organizations get pissy about primer bikes running around, but rattlecan can surely get ya thru.

HAIL TO THE KING!!

my race bike last year was rattle canned and by the time the end of season the paint looked pretty pitted and comming off. I thought this would be a good looking alternitive. And rattle canning it is not all that cheap. I used Color Rite paint last time and to get good coverage it was about $150 i just paint. And green haze on everything in my garage. It all came off but sheesh. Pain in the ass. As I am everything I do DYI always has mistakes and that is fine with me. Like some of you said its a race bike and people are not looking for the bling factor. But a $700 paint job is not an option either.

I'd go for it it's not too bad looking not cheap but not as expensive as painting it

Hell yeah, I'd try it. like our dirtbikes, your plastic is all colored anyway, they're just preprinted graphics. Maybe take it to a local shop and have them do it the first time but ask if you can watch while they apply them. I've ruined more than a few background graphics before I watched my kids sponsor do his bike at the shop. Now I at least feel 90% confident I can do it myself. Good luck.
