carbon fiber tins!

I'm in the process of doing a carbon fiber set of tins! The carbon fiber is not painted on, but it's not real carbon fiber, either! I'm doing the entire bike this way, both fenders, the tank, the sidecovers, the radiator shroud, and the headlight housing!

What you see here is JUST the beginning. I'm adding some "brushed aluminum" effects, and then I'll be spraying blue candy over all of it.

i've seen a place on the net that has blue CF vinyl along with red and conventional. There is also an embossed CF vinyl that looks pretty real from Hexis and 3M Di-noc

I was wondering if you could successfully clear over this to give it a legit CF appearance. What i wish someone made was CF touring bags, side covers, fenders...but most likely i couldn't afford it anyway...

Did you get yours done. I did do mine in Carbon Fiber. I did not do the inner fairing because it is very complex.

Long Bags matching Fender.
18" wrap front fender
Stretch tank and center console.
Side covers
