Stickerbombing my plastics (DR650 SuperMoto)

Hi all,

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.

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.

So hot.

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?

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.

Mr. B 02-07-2012 04:45 PM

Ditto...
 
...I had rather low expectations for the project, even though I contributed some stickers. Good job!

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

malokam 02-07-2012 10:40 PM
