    It will lift. I wrapped some bits in the past and didn't last. Best getting it carbon dipped.

    at first i thought it would as well but nothing has peeled off or even shown signs of peeling off i was looking at it today as i checked the oil etc it looks as good as it did the day i wrapped it, i would recommend wrapping your bays its cheaper than having it sprayed plus you can get wraps in pretty much any colour, and i did it all my self its easy all you need is scalpel for precision and a halogen home heater to heat the wrap

    Could that not be a possible fire hazard....most vinyl starts ( 3M etc ) to go around +95c.

    I like the section within the main engine cover, nicely done. Less keen on the rest as it has more obvious edges that don't quite look finished, and you've got the weave going in different directions. Good effort though :)
