    First ever attempt at wrapping vinyl and it turned out well enough that I didn't rip it off. That's a success in my book.

    The design is noisy. I do like it but I'm only using that for 3 and a half pieces of side plastic. Fenders are getting a satin red carbon fiber. Gas tank & headlight trim will be black carbon fiber. Number plate and fork covers will be white carbon fiber. If I can pull this off, the whole makeover will cost ~75 bucks...and should be less. I bought way more than needed

    Countertops, with "free" builtin kitchen sink, installed this morning, leaving me just the "easy" hookup of the new one hole faucet and the drain. The hoses that came with the sink are only 24" long, and I need 30", and the sink is deeper than the old one so the drain, with dishwasher attachment, doesn't fit either. Lowes doesn't carry these "foreign" hoses, so I just ordered everything from Amazon.

    I wanted to finish this before my back surgery tomorrow, but NO.........

    Hope it goes well and you have a quick recovery! Most of all, hopefully you will be pain free once the dust clears.

    So, I don't like the vinyl wrap on the bike. It just looks...off. Since the red digital camo doesn't impress me, I'm not going to waste time with any of the carbon fiber wrap.

    Surprised you don't have some old hydraulic hoses, heater hose, etc. from your old Porsches you could use for sink hoses/drain. Enough duct tape and baling wire should have adapted any old hose to work!

    Don't try to tackle that too soon after surgery!!! Hiring it done is far cheaper than screwing up your back... beyond repair!!!!

    Laugh it up. I deserve it. I'm not really sure where I even come up with the idea.

    So were you going for the flower girl look, or did you just get lucky and it came out that way? :p

    I like your moxie. I think you are the only one here who would tell me if I had a booger hanging out of my nose.

    Also, you were right....my 2 boys told me it looks "sick!" Anyone know a young girl interested in a dual sport?

    Think I should rip the floral wrap off? You twats aren't giving me any feedback. MC's daughter said she wanted a ride but she didn't mention my motorcycle. MC said I lucked out. All these vague replies aren't helpful. I thought I could count on you guys to shoot me straight.

    I’m not a bike guy but yeah, looks very...ummm... not good. It may be camo up close but from a distance it looks like a nice floral arrangement pattern.

    I have found full plastics in black or green (Chinese abs for $230) but I can't find the same as what's on it. Wondering now if eye appeal will make that much of a difference when I sell it
