Hi, Thread ressurection time- Sorry! It is winter so it's quite topical..
I'm interested to know what others members POV's are on using the stuff too.
I've got a tatty UV faded frame on the way to the spray shop for a wet painting and when it comes back I'm tempted to 'stop the rot' before it starts by way of Helitaping it..
After some experimentation with various brands and suppliers, I have found this to be the best:http://www.biketart.com/AdvancedSearch.aspx?Term=biketape
OK, Its not cheap but it's supple, goes around curves and sticks without crud sneaking in. The frame looks shiny and well finished if you cut, apply accurately and zap it with a hairdrier to make it tight- almost
as if it doesn't have helitape applied.
I gather most use it to cover specific wear points from cables etc. I do this. But has anyone had a respray done and used it to protect their nice new minty paint job/decals..i.e Has anyone used it to fully protect the main tubes? Did it last? Did it knacker the decals? - assuming they were not under the lacquer - Is it worth the hassle in the long run?
