Looks very cool !

Where did you buy the tank pads ?

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

Morning.
I'm going to do a tank cover respray, but need advice on removing the tank protector.
Will this come off and can it be used again?  I'm thinking of using a hairdryer to remove it?

Any pointers or wisdom to guide me, please

I changed my colour from Graphite to White and managed to reuse the tank pad.

A bit off topic but where did you find those Dzus fasteners for the plastics? Getting tired of the constant fiddling with the hex bolts

Yes, they were standard.
