Carbon Fiber Wrap In The Snow: 2006 Yamaha Nytro ER Snowmobile

While it probably wouldn’t be the first thing you would guess that DI-NOC would be installed on, one of our customers decided to put it on his 2006 Yamaha Nytro ER snowmobile.

You can see how it looked like before installation, because the DI-NOC gives off a matte look, it will help keep his snowmobile looking new.

Jeff initially came to us with a few concerns about installation.  3M DI-NOC has no problems holding up in cold weather, though the optimal temperature when installing is between 60-100 degrees.  Luckily the snowmobile is stored indoors, and this wasn’t a problem.  We also highly recommend using 3M Primer94 to better bond the material and keep the edges from peeling.

Jeff thought the material was great, it had a nice texture, and so far had no problem holding up to the elements.  It was his first time ever working with vinyl, so there was a bit of a learning curve.  The complete install took about 3 hours with another person helping.  He recommends having somebody help you out, and to use a lot of heat which makes the material a lot easier to apply smoothly (he used a hair dryer).

The hardest parts working around all of the tight spots making it look perfect, while the visor was the easiest section.  You’ll need patience if you want it perfect!

Great job Jeff!  For more picture examples, check out our gallery.
