Hey Ryder, do you know what kind of clear plastic wrap it is? Did you wrap your bike? Are you happy with the results? Does it cloud the paint in any way? thank you

Don't know the details, found them on social media pages for a company out of toronto called CarBox industries. @Frio , the owner below might be able to answer this.

The film is from a company named Suntek. It was chosen because it is thinner than the 3M one, and the installers recommended it (they also sell/install 3M, Xpel, etc.)

I have not seen the finished bike yet, I have to pick it up this week...

Frio, could you please tell me the details about the plastic wrap? The photo looks like the paint isn't clouded in anyway. Is it that way in real life? Did you do the installation yourself, or hire someone to do it? Could you tell me what brand the plastic is, the thickness, the warranty, how long it would last, and if it can be replaced (safely) with no damage to the paint? If a person wanted to cover all of the painted surfaces, how much plastic would a person need? Is it possible to plan the seams to be in an area where it isn't seen al that much?
Thank you.

Frio, maybe after you pick your bike up, you could answer my questions?
Thank you.

You could try asking the shop that is working on his H2, they might provide some https://www.facebook.com/CarboxIndustries

Ok, it turns out the bike in the pictures is not mine, it's another H2 being worked on at the same shop.

The owner of the bike in those pictures requested that only a paint protection ceramic coating be applied, therefore the pictures you see do not have any film applied to the bike.

The transparent film in the pictures is only for protection of the parts that do not need the coating to be applied to.

I have requested to have the most exposed parts of my bike wrapped with the film, and then all the painted surfaces (including the ones protected by the film) coated with the ceramic coating.

I do not have any pictures of my bike with the film applied to it yet, the owner of the company who provides the service assures me that it is essentially impossible to see the film, unless you get close enough to see the seams where it is cut.

Never mind, the bike in the pictures (at least the ones with the film being applied) is actually mine! :-)

The film in the pictures is the actual paint protection film they applied.
