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.

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
