redfjniner Posted February 6, 2015 Share Posted February 6, 2015 I decided to not paint the side bags and wrap them in vinyl. I looked at videos of others doing vinyl wraps and figured that I could give it a try. Just a warning here, it is harder than it looks and really you need to practice or watch others do this to figure out how to get out of trouble. That said, I am happy with the first bag, even though it has some issues. From the pictures the problem areas are not so obvious, but in person and close up you can see these little flaws. Since I am more interested in riding than standing around looking at the bike and will most likely only use the side bags on week long trips, which I have 6 scheduled this year, so if you are lucky enough, you can see them on one of my week long trips. Here are pictures of the first one done. Now I have to do equally as well, and hopefully better, on the second case. Sanded FJR side case. Carbon fiber vinyl wrap. Side case with vinyl wrap. On bike. w/red vinyl detail. Complete on bike. Complete project on bike. When it stops raining I will try to get some pic on side in the good light. Everything looks orange here. Edit: Added the following picture of both side bags: 1 Ken, Candy Ass L.D.R.
