Wrap the tank??

Has anyone wrapped the tank a different color?

I purchased the red/ silver color which is my least favorite color but i got it at an awesome deal i couldn't pass up. But knew maybe later i could wrap it or paint it.

Any pics, ideas, suggestions?

Whilst I wouldn’t tackle the job myself given that wrapping a tank would be a pita it of course can be done. I have been considering the use of vinyl to at least partially add colour to my colour scheme because I like how reversible it is.

But for the same reasons more recently have been researching Plasti Dip, which is something I feel I could work with myself.

Duck over to Triumph Rat.net and have a look at this blokes work on his Thruxton......https://www.triumphrat.net/water-coo...inyl-wrap.html


There's a couple of vids on Youtube, but best left to the pro's. I wouldn't contemplate myself.

Yes for sure it can be done but as others have said, it's a specialist job so choose whoever does it carefully.

Depending on cost, it might be cheaper to look for a tank in the color that IS your favorite in case someone upgraded to a larger tank and is selling their old one. I've seen a couple up for sale in Black or Ironstone, so it may be worth a look anyway.

Each one matters.

Yea but I wanted to wrap it in a totally different color like dark green for instance.
Anyone in the NorCal area who can wrap the tank?
