Vinyl it yourself, its easy all you need is a hair dryer to heat it up to avoid creases.

8m x 600mm is £13.50 on ebay delivered.

im as bald as a coot and haven't owned a hairdryer for over 20 years  :blank:

not a bad idea though.....have you done it before?

Not the best quality vinyl in the world but it does the job.

Yeah I'm in the process of doing mates race bike for next season. Its coming along quite well really.

I will post pictures on Sunday.

I would recommend one of these for certain areas, but I tend to just use my fingers.

Hair dryer will apply the heat needed to stretch the vinyl and remove any creases.

Essential for the trimming.
