But for me, it's like a night out with a porn star, every time I press that starter button. Schneller! Schneller! Tiefer! Ja, ich bin geil! Ich komme!  >:D

ek kyk nou al heel middag na tank designs, maar almal is vir roadbikes , harleys en duus meer.....ek wonder hoe a meer "bos' design sal werk....natuurlik makliker om die kunswerk akkuraat op die bike te kry in vinyl ....waar verf sal afhang van die 'skill' van die verwer....

If you need to do something about the sound, you can also get the Plaasmeisie rapped! Now for the lyrics!

have you thought of using Plasti Dip?
http://www.plastidip.com/

wow...this is amazing product...will look into it also...quite like the idea....and it would be more durable than a wrap i would assume.....so it will depend on the cost....and who can apply it...thanks ...nice idea..

Hmmm. I like this. Been toying with the carbon fiber idea for a while. The gloss finishes are just too easy to scratch. Thanks for the pics

Blazes went thru the whole process , step by step , with me on how to manufacture the carbon fiber parts...claddings if you will....its so much work.....if you dont do it yourself, i think it will be pretty pricey..... got some quotes coming in tomorrow...will update if and when.....

Laurika, most good sign companies should be able to do it. Some cars that are done have serious compound curves and the vinyl stays on.

Gee Esh: Seems great minds think alike. Here's my XC and my WD graphic to go with it.
