I have the Wunderlich for trips, it does a great job and is excellent quality, and then a Powerbronze for around town and day rides, because the Wunderlich is goofy-looking!

Plasti-dip has no durability, it peels far too easily. You'd be better off to 3M vinyl wrap, that will hold up better and stay on longer. A little more work to get it off, however.

Well, its not the piggy-back that is saving you from a canbus fault warning, its the relay in the new horn. Whether you tap into the OEM horn or remove it entirely has no bearing on fault conditions.

Don't use sandpaper, use steel wool and rub it in with a metal polish. You can clean them up some, but not even close to 100 % that way. Still, a much nicer patina than shit brown.
