Oh, don't get me wrong, I would wrap my bike in a heartbeat!! I especially like the "Bamboo Bomber" look – and already started to get golden parts which would pair nicely with the olive-color, once I find a good wrapper that can re-create this look.

What I meant is just that I don't like wrapping metal parts. Because … what is better looking than metal? I love the fact that the CB1KR only has 6 plastic (deco) parts so much, I even ripped the badges off to make it 2 less :)

TLDR: I love wraps. Just not on metal.

Apropos polishing your boobs … I mean bits …

I lost patience and my rear seat cowl had a conversation with a power sanding tool.
Got all the way through … but at what cost? Alu looks deeeesgusting now.

But I guess I'll do it like Dori (Finding Nemo): Just keep sanding, sanding, sanding.

Project failed.
Tis just too much work to individually hand sand every nook and cranny of that gosh darn aluminium.

I will have the pieces sand blasted and powder coated now.

So long, ”industrial sink“ look. :-/ Maybe next season.

Will post pics tho, once the powder coating is done.
