Featured 1260 Carbon Dip

  1. Having been inspired by @BigAlan carbon dipped hugger and chain guard I had mine done this week, just need to get them back on the bike now but overall I’m pleased with the look.

  4. had them done here......

    Local to me, Jason is a top man and has done a lot of fine work.
    I had my lower bash plates (belly pan) powered coated rather than dipped

  6. Thanks @NOODS X

    'working from home' today, so i'll have time to get it all fitted back on the bike ;)
  7. Close to me too so I may need to pay them a visit :)
  8. New Lodge just outside Barnsley, in contrast a mate of mine had some bits done on his GS at a place in Wakefield and they aint a patch on quality compared to these :)

  9. @tyke65 dipping terminology aside I presume they’ve been wrapped?
  10. Damn, too far away from me.
  11. I saw them do dipping on wheeler dealer once where they cleaned the part, then primered it, then black paint coated, then dipped for the carbon sheet in a tank and then sealed it in with a couple of clear coates of laquer.

    That would be different from just wrapping

  13. There is a place just up the road from me in Witney who does it, A1 Hydro who are excellent, quite a few from here have sent them the bits and are happy.

    There are thousands of options which you can have not just carbon lookalike.
  14. Looks great, can you give an idea of costs?
  15. I can yes....£180 for those 4 bits of mine :upyeah:

  19. I'm just amazed how they manage to get the 'weave' in something that's been dipped into a tank of fluid. It looks v good though, well impressed:upyeah:
