Looks sharp. I'll be interested to see if it holds up. I'm planning to do the PVC pipe tool tube job on mine and I'm planning on dipping it.

I was going to ask the same thing about the windscreen? I am 5'11'" and I am wondering how the wind noise or buffeting is? If that thing has you sitting in clean air I will jump on one and use it for a summer shield. It looks great!

+1!

If the plastidip doesn't hold up, you may want to try something like the spray-on truck bed lining - http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p/d...010/10066313-P.

It was pretty easy to work with. Actually goes on like spray paint. I put about 4 light coats on it for coverage. 30 minutes between coats and a final 4 hours before use.

I didn't plan on spraying the underbelly of the fender since you wouldn't be able to see it. But the next day I noticed some white edges underneath the fender I had missed so I went ahead and shot the whole thing. The top of the fender took one can to complete.

I removed the double hose clip because it was moving around in the hole. I figured that would cause some problems with the flexible finish. I just spray painted over the others.

It does have a very subtle texture to it. It matches the molded fork covers very well. Now begins the durability tests.
Nice job on the fender. I did mine a few weeks ago. I'm not sure about the look with my blue roadie but it looks great with your white.

I believe this plasti dip is very durable. A friend of mine did his aluminum jeep wheels with it over a year ago. It is his daily driver and does some off roading with it. Multiple washes, a few tire rotations and this stuff hasn't peeled, chipped, or faded. Even around the lug nuts after rotating the tires it hasn't peeled on its own. This stuff is really amazing. I think it will hold up fine on the fender.
