Sticker bombing my plastics (DR650 SuperMoto)
The bike is for sale now
Stickerbombing my plastics (DR650 SuperMoto)
I decided to stickerbomb my SuMo'ed DR650 plastics. First of all, huge thanks to everyone who sent in decals and stickers. I will be adding the names of all the people/companies that donated/sent me stickers at the end of this post.
I shamelessly stole this idea from some post on SMJ but that was a DRZ. Lets see how cool the big DR looks in a stickerbomb version. If you folks have any suggestions or advise, throw it at me.
**Mods: If you need to move this thread to another section, please do.
Please donate any unwanted stickers here -My "WTB Stickers Thread" or PM me
And I am still looking for a Rear fender. Let me know if anyone has an extra lying around.
Here is the bike almost in its present state.
Here are the plastics I got so far
And the stickers/decals I collected so far.
Now... to start cleaning the parts and planning the layout of the stickers. WIll add more pics over this weekend.
Members who constributed to this noble/silly cause :-D
Brands/Companies that sent me stickers for free
Updated the list with people/companies that contributed.. :1drink:freaky
Finally found some time to work on this.
first, get a good beer. Found this at the world market.
Cleaned up the plastic parts
Using these to strip the tank paint
All the stickers.
Well, after 2 hours of careful cutting, lining up cleaning up the edges, not to mention ironing out the creases in the stickers....
FINALLY... finished the side panels.
How do you get the stickers to conform to the compound curves (in the fuel tank for example) without wrinkles?
Do you use a pounce roller?
Judicious use of a heat gun?
Havent finished the tank yet, but will update with the potential pitfalls.
When I first started reading this thread I thought wow this will look cheesy but it looks fantastic, keep up the good work. Damn...I need to start collecting stickers now.
...I had rather low expectations for the project, even though I contributed some stickers. Good job!
I had my own doubts but I am happy as of now. Cant wait to finish up and take the bike out for a spin.. :evil
I love stickers. I have them all over my XL500R. Really cool stickers too.
That beer bottle pic makes this whole thread worthwhile, no matter how your bike turns out... :freaky
The headlight alone took more than 2 hours.. :eek1
Still havent completely stripped the tank.. probably gonna have to wait till the weekend to finish up.. :wink:
Dude -- I thought I'd stumbled upon a long lost Peter Max celebratory thread for half a mo . . . .. .. very cool looking! Good for you!
