    Was a tough job taking all apart, but worth it. Still room for improvement though..

    Wow I like it. Does it affect the GPS or receivers in any way?

    I think it looks sweet! I have thought about doing the exact same thing since it can be peeled off.

    Forget about peeling off. Its almost impossible to peel off completely. You can buy the white covers as spare parts cheaply. Problem is the installing and taking apart...

    Doesn't affect GPS at all.

    Sprayed them. Was easy. Just taking everything off was a real pain, especially the tail light..

    Do you know where to get the matching pattern for the latest type/look?

    If you take it to a carbon dipping place I am sure they can do this.

    That would be cool. The only ones I have seen do not match.

    About 3 hours incl remounting. Its not that its that much to do, but rather some screws are a real pain and wouldnt come off easily, mounting was difficult too. Screws and wholes are not well nor precisely made.
