I used Carbon Fiber Vinyl for the first time and the front fender was a learning experience which must be redone. I needed to use 3M Primer 94 on the fender given it's complex curves. Total cost was $21. I added COB LED Daytime Running Lights and they are very bright. They were $19.33 on Amazon. Beware: some COB LED's have a very short life; therefore, it's best not to buy the less expensive ones.

Question: how did you change those little lights on the inside of the headlight?
just did it today for the first time. just take the 4 bolts off the top of the headlight assembly, and the 2 on the right and left of the assembly. Pull the turns out a bit and you can get to the lights fairly easily. took me 5 minutes including finding the right Allen key.

Did you remove the front wheel or headlight (or anything) to wrap your forks? I really want to do this to mine but I'm wondering which is more work... removing wheel and headlight so that the wrapping is easier, or removing nothing and saving effort there but having to wrap with everything in the way.
