3M DiNoc Carbon Vinyl

I wrapped my sidecovers today in this stuff and it looks pretty good! It's not the greatest job, as I've never wrapped anything in my life, but it's a hell of a lot cheaper than buying carbon pieces (I got a 12"x48" piece for $27 shipped). I will say one thing, if you try this yourself, a heat gun should be your best friend.

I had about a 12" x 8" piece left. Good enough to cover the back of my friends iPhone! You have to cut it larger than the piece, obviously, but large enough that you can pull and stretch it, so there was some waste pieces.

Thanks! It's got some creases on the hard corners, but most of them are hidden by the seat or tank, so it's all good. Like I said, not perfect, but much cheaper than actual carbon!! I'll try and get a picture of them on the bike tomorrow.

Hey, that turned out great! How much did a roll of that stuff cost you? If you have a link to wherever you bought it, I'll check it out!

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

Here's the link to what I bought...

eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices


I didn't use the primer though, because, from what I understand, the Primer makes it a bit harder to remove the vinyl if you need to, and I wasn't sure how it would look (or how bad I would be at it).

Cool. Just thinking of a swoosh/stripe here and there rather than an actual full wrap.

I used an actual heat gun, but I have heard of people using a dryer as well, so I'm sure it would work.

I think it will look real good in the sunlight. Everyone of my friends/family I have shown says it looks fantastic. When I had it on the bike, my one buddy said it looked like 'factory carbon'. For 26 bucks it's definitely worth a shot!

Only problem is I keep looking at random things and wondering what they would look like wrapped in carbon...

Did mine a couple weeks ago. Took a pic of both the CF on my Scorpion can as well as the side covers, very close match.

What I like about this stuff is it's actually a 3D print, so light is reflected differently when looking at it (exactly like CF does). VERY good imitation product.
