Sticker bombing my plastics (DR650 SuperMoto)

The bike is for sale now

Stickerbombing my plastics (DR650 SuperMoto)

Hi all,

I decided to stickerbomb my SuMo'ed DR650 plastics. First of all, huge thanks to everyone who sent in decals and stickers. I will be adding the names of all the people/companies that donated/sent me stickers at the end of this post.

I shamelessly stole this idea from some post on SMJ but that was a DRZ. Lets see how cool the big DR looks in a stickerbomb version. If you folks have any suggestions or advise, throw it at me.

**Mods: If you need to move this thread to another section, please do.

Please donate any unwanted stickers here -My "WTB Stickers Thread" or PM me
And I am still looking for a Rear fender. Let me know if anyone has an extra lying around.

Here is the bike almost in its present state.


Here are the plastics I got so far


And the stickers/decals I collected so far.




Now... to start cleaning the parts and planning the layout of the stickers. WIll add more pics over this weekend.

Well, after 2 hours of careful cutting, lining up cleaning up the edges, not to mention ironing out the creases in the stickers....

FINALLY... finished the side panels.

How do you get the stickers to conform to the compound curves (in the fuel tank for example) without wrinkles?

Do you use a pounce roller?

Judicious use of a heat gun?

Ditto...

...I had rather low expectations for the project, even though I contributed some stickers. Good job!

That beer bottle pic makes this whole thread worthwhile, no matter how your bike turns out...
