Plasti Dip

Plasti Dipped my right side cover. Opinions please. I plan to do the other side and the tank where the knee pads should go if favorible. http://www.triumphrat.net/attachment...1&d=1354756183

I'd not thought of using it on sidecovers, etc., but the spray-on stuff is great! I've used it on turn signal housings, fender braces, even an old helmet. Makes a great satin finish spray paint and it's durable as hell.

The sidecover looks great, BTW.

.....Looks good , a lot like the T-Bird Storm design ! The "black out" look seems to be the fad . Even the Rockett has that type of knee protectors on the tank. Appears that you have done a good job--could be factory work to anyone that doesn't know what stock looks like.
.........The important thing being ; do you like it ? I'd let you do my bike but I live in Nevada----way too far especially in the winter !

Plasti Dip is way too easy and very forgiving. If you don't like it or mess it up it peels right off.

I think if you like it then go with the look,for my tastes it doesnt look right but I think that area should be devoid of anything such as covers or airboxes.

It seems like Plasti Dip is becoming quite popular in the auto/cycle world these days. I also belong to an Audi forum and guys are Plasti Dipping grilles, emblems, whole cars, etc.

I don't have first hand experience with it, but those who use it swear by it.

So who's going to be the first one here to Plasti Dip their whole bike?
