Trip to Estonia is looming ahead. I need to strap the Giant Loop bags on the bike which means that the rear plastics would get scratched to s**t. On a bike like this, that should not really matter, but I decided to try to protect them anyway.
At first I tried using clear rubber paint (not PlastiDip brand) which produced horrible results. Then I tried applying vinyl wrapping, but the awkward shape (and my lack of skill) of the rear plastics again lead to ugly results.
In retrospect this was a bit of a futile exercise. Scratches will be inevitable so why bother and the rubber paint wont protect the plastics against rocks etc. anyway. Also the rubber paint when removed, matted the tool box cover plastic.
