Thanks for the kind words.
The painting part was pretty straight forward.
The CF wrap was very time consuming!
Almost 2 hours to do one side panel.. :shock:
I've used 3 diffrent kinds of CF film before, and this was by far the best quality and very stiff and durrable.
But put some heat on it and it turns to plastic wrap
...for a few seconds

Heres the rear flap before install.
Image

FYI
I didnt paint the down tubes, just used some of my OLD CF wrap (that really doenst look like CF wrap) to disguise that I didnt paint those parts


And thanks fpr the "members ride" move...I never thought of that :ucrazy:

stupid me!
