Wish your PM was anything but white?

So you bought the generic white PM and wish you could be anything but white.......... Check this video out of a full body wrap in silver.

They missed an opportunity to have the pretty where it shows, but leave white on top for heat reflectance.

May look good when new, but got to wonder how durable "a full body wrap" would be?

Also wonder how competitive "a full body wrap" in a solid color would be cost wise to just painting?

The 3M material most shops use is super durable. Better than paint. The problem is cost. 159 high roof would be $2500-$3500.

Sorry, but watching them stretch & perforate the body wrap material over the fresh air grille openings still leaves me skeptical.

Seriously doubt even the best body wrap material will be "Better than paint" when it comes to durability on such convoluted corners/edges.

Some of the vinyl wraps out there are pretty impressive. I've got a 3mil textured leather look wrap made by MacTac on a BMW r1200GSA that I ride on and off road. The stuff holds up amazingly well. I even did the saddle bags and side panels. The side panels consist of compound curves, recessed lettering, angled surfaces, etc and its where my knees rub against it when sitting. I've had no issues with wear and tear. Sure, a premium paint professionally applied at a factory is going to be better than vinyl, but it's also better than aftermarket paint jobs as well.
