someone needs a midol and a nap!
Had my plasitics Line-X yesterday. I love it. No more worrying about scratching the paint. Notice the 7.1 gallon tank. Ho Ho Ho.
doggone man!! you make it look like high artwork. good work!
what type of BL was/is that ????
wow, good job guys, thats definitly a very good possibilty on my adventure!!!!! thanks
Thanks for the compliments. It's rattle-can bedliner from PepBoys. Sprays on easy and it's tough stuff. I dropped that tank when I was carrying it across my concrete driveway and it didn't even scuff.
good job. looks exactly like the other side of that other BMW....
After going down at bout 20 in the dirt
Man, that looks good on the 640 adventure. I like it
Have you had any problems cleaning the surface, after the fact? I figure a stiff scrub brush ought to do the job...
Great minds think alike
I ended up with some broken plastics this weekend and am considering some bedliner on my F650GS.
Let's see pictures of the bedliner on your bike.
Heres a big thread on bedlliner...
Stiff scrub brush does the trick
EDIT: just read your reply to the same question a few pages back...thanks!
+1 on the spraycan sucking! Which one is the roll on and how good is it compared to professionally applied liner? I ask because I'm thinking about doing my Dodge pickup rocker panels. It's a dark blue truck, so the black would blend in well and no more worries blasting down gravel roads. Can you get a good finish with roll on? will it sag on a vertical surface?
Kinda lost track of this thread, but thanks! Never thought of the trouble of aerosols via air-mail. You got a point there!
None the less, I'll find out fees at the US postal site
The thing is that pick-up trucks are not very common on the other side of the big pond, and as a result procucts related are not common too...even the manufacturers that sell the products in the US dont have the same productline overseas..
Bringing the parts to a workshop is possible, that'll set me back a $200 or more for just the tank......naahhh
To be continued
Duplicolor spray bedliner on MZ Baghira...
That's cool as shit!
maybe I'm just a cheap #$$%, being a KLR owner and all--
but I don't get the idea of buying these expensive, alphabet-soup bikes, and then painting them black bedliner.
At least stick with the "look at me, I bought an overpriced bike" colors
-signed, a somewhat-jealous KLR owner who has given consideration to painting his beast Orange
not because I care about KTM- but because I like orange, and it's my team's colors.
Hard to plead cheapass when you list 6 vehicles, including a 2006..oser
and doubly hard to bash alphabet soup when you have KLR, XJ, GT, ZJ, R, etc..
FYI:A used 1997-2000 BMW F650 costs $2500-$3500.
Most everyone here had the choice between:
1) colors they don't like
2) damaged plastics or bodywork
3) knowing that they would soon damage their plastics or bodywork
A new paint job is $200+. Then you adventure ride your bike, and wa-la, you're back to the damaged plastic. Now, no worries about plastic. Only worries about the ride.
My brother always says:
"Bike are like women, they are meant to riden, not looked at."
Actually, I may have said that.
But my brother with the 55lb head, did say this:
"A bike, sitting in the garage, is worthless to me."
Don't be afraid, Jeepmaster, go ride! Your KLR will have a whole new opinion of you.
