    Wrapping instead of paint.

    Anyone know of a company in Perth that does the vinyl wrap for motorbikes/can you get it done in reflective wrap?

    Reflective vinyl isn't designed to be used as a wrap. Due to the composition required to provide the reflection, it is generally very thick versus your normal wrapping vinyls, and doesn't conform to curves very well. You might be able to use it on flat sections as stripes or shapes, but wouldn't be able to use it on any complex curves at all (curve in 2 directions), as it wouldn't sit flat or stick well.

    Most automotive wrapping shops / sign-writing shops would probably do a wrap, however the price can be pretty expensive depending on the bike and vinyl type/colour you might choose, as well as how much you want wrapped.

    I do sign-writing/decals/wrapping of an evening/weekends, and could give you a quote if you wanted.

    I wont do a bike under eleventy billion dollars as life is too short and people wont pay for quality workmanship nowadays

    but i'll do parts etc-, got a good selection of blades, sharpening stones, circle cutters, a hairdryer, a 500w lamp, and good at templates.
    no bunching, splits , tears, and I hide edges, align patterns, use lots of material and I don't rush or cut paint.








    You'll see on YouTube '3 minute door pillars' I just wonder what it looks like within a metre lol.
