2009 Victory Vision Motorcyle Gets Console Wrapped

One of our customers purchased 4 sq/ft of our 3M carbon fiber DI-NOC vinyl and used it to wrap the console on his brand new 2009 Midnight Cherry Victory Vision motorcycle.\r\n\r\n

\r\n\r\nAs you can see in the above picture, the console comes stock with a brushed aluminum look, which Gardner had problems with due to the glare problem it caused.  He wanted something that looked good to resolve the issue, which is why he opted to go for the carbon fiber look that 3M DI-NOC provides.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nGardner talked to us a little bit about what he thought of the material, and why he chose to go with 3M’s solution over other brands:\r\n

As far as the material, I love the look and feel of the wrap, it lends itself to giving a TRUE carbon fiber feel and look…I know what the real stuff looks like and feels like due to some work I have done in the past. It is NOT shiny and will not cause any type of glare or reflection which some of the CHEAPER stuff does. As always, I am a 3M nut, I will pay more for 3M Material than I would anybody else’s as 3M is the LEADER in this type of material.


\r\n\r\nWe also asked Gardner what he thought about the installation.  He said that having a squeegee and a hair dryer or heat gun is a necessity.  Since this was his first attempt, there was a large learning curve, and even ended up having to scrap his first piece of DI-NOC.  Once he saw the video we posted on YouTube with the squeegee and heat being used, another shot was given, this time making it much easier.  He highly recommended watching that video to see some techniques, finding it extremely helpful and informative.\r\n\r\nWe like how much attention to deal was done, including wrapped the mount for the GPS receiver.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nFor more pictures of Gardner’s install, check out the gallery.
