Anyone vinyl wrapped their forks?



I like the look, thinking about wrapping the upper triple fork and lower fork area, keeping the sliding area unwrapped ofcourse.

Looks pretty sharp. Wonder how it holds up, and where to obtain it?

I like the thought of having to clean the forks less often to prevent seal blowouts, and it actually looks good! Well, minus the trendy carbon-fiber parts that I've never liked the look of.

A local place does vinyl wraps at $10 a square foot. I wonder what they would price that out at.

Thats cheap, but they're probally assuming you're doing a vehicle, panel of a vehicle boat ect. something with some square footage. I doubt they're cuttin start cuttin and wrappin for $17.26 lol.
