I bought one this spring. It's a large fridge magnet like you get from realtors, no stronger or thicker. I was expecting something more substantial. Good luck getting the damn thing to fit like I know you want it to. For me it was close but like I was trying to fit the wrong size sheet on my bed. The instructions say to set it out in the sun to get it just right and when I tried to carefully make an adjustment, (there was a pucker that would let in dust and water) it ripped a little. I boxed it up and returned it for an 80% refund. Maybe I'm a moron or they have a good idea that isn't executed quite well enough. Hey...you might love it.

I didn't even get as far as "foot" did. I baked the crap out of it with my wife's hair dryer and couldn't get it to fit to the tank. It's on my desk right now to be returned. After seeing the Tankslapper on Nate and Angela's bikes, I'm going that route.

Yep. Love out Tanslappers. Anglea is the one who found them, cut them and applied them. Hell, she does all the work on her bike and helps or does a good portion on mine.

I really like how they let the paint show through and you can barely tell they are there from 5 feet away.

Thanks for the feedback- the tankslapper looks like the way to go.

I made one my self, it is not a perfect fit, but close enough...

It only cost me my time and $0.00 for the material since my Dad/Uncle are in the printing business and they had this material in the shop that he used for a few jobs for some customer..

This is an old version of the few I have made, the newer one I have currently on the bike has rounder edges...

The only issue I have is the fit around the bottom edges from the front the tank to the side of the tank where I have not figured out how to make it so it is flush with the tank..
