    Paint protection film
    « on: 2020-11-24 18:08:01 »
    Anybody got any recommendations for clear paint protection films?
    My knees have been rubbing against the underside of the tank, when I checked the oil today I could see that the paint has dulled slightly. This is on both sides.
    Just looking for something that is pre- cut and covers the area to stop it getting any worse.
    Looked on Nippy Normans site and could  find pre-shaped pieces for the back of the tank but what I need is something that will cover the underside (just above where the grey panel meets the painted tank).

      I've just fitted this Hornig product to my R1250RT.

      It's good quality and was easy to fit  :)

        I know you said you wanted something pre-cut, but I used regular PPF and made a DIY template. Easy and an awful lot more reasonably priced than the precut stuff

          I've always had mine professionally applied as it is not easy to get a clean finish on a complex-curve panel (it's easy for some!!). If you search for a Ventureshield installer, he should be able to put the film exactly where you need it.


          Hope this helps. My chap has now moved to Sussex - the pandemic killed his own business in Outer London.

            Thanks for the replies, gives me a few options to think about.


            John, just remembered that you showed me the protection film on your RT at the Peterborough meet up this year. Very nice job, don't think I would have noticed it if you hadn't pointed it out.

              Hi Mike, I wrapped my 1250 two weeks ago using an kit from paintguard UK.  The kit comprised of all pieces apart from the ones you describe.  I sent a reversible paper pattern to Steve at paintguard who made LHS and RHS pieces to fit.  You could make your own pattern, or if you like, I'll send you mine.  The pieces Steve made are a perfect fit and easy to apply as long as you have some patience and follow the instructions.

                Thanks for that, I'll have a look on their website.

                  I got mine from The Tankslapperz. Absolutely brilliant stuff.

                    Looks like a good recommendation from Bandytales.  Tankslapperz do the pieces you are after Mike.  I take it they will supply to a UK address?  If you use them don't forget you will need to pay import duty.
