03 R6 Cowl wrap

Just wanted to share some pictures of the temporary cowl wrap I did on my R6.

The lighting in my parking garage is poor so they won't turn out very well, so I won't have proper pictures until the spring.

Pictures:
-Picked up a used cowl from dubhugger here on the forums
-Pics comparing the seat to the cowl
-Pic of my bike and the difference in color between my bike and the cowl
-Pics of the wrapped cowl and under side of the wrap before it was trimmed.

I'm letting it cure for a couple days before I trim it properly so that if it shrinks or stretches it will have enough material to do so.

This is a very tricky wrap, it took me 3 tries and finally was able to complete the wrap.
First try I didn't take my time and rushed it and didn't take care of all the wrinkles, and the second try I broke through the vinyl with my squeegee.

Installed pictures added.

Is there a company that sells an exhaust hanger bracket that doesn't bolt to the tail? I want to remove both sides.

Looks good.

RIP Matt (Ghost R6). You will be greatly missed. Be smooth and the rubber turning till we meet again.

The Vortex one looks really nice and only costs around $40. It doesn't come with any hardware, but pretty simple to figure out what you need. Otherwise there are carbon fiber ones for around $80-$100
