    If you want to change the color of your CT....

    I wouldn't suggest trying to wrap it.  Maybe if you find a pro who is willing.  I bought about 150.00 USD of vinyl and after watching about 10 hours of Utube videos thought I would give it a try.  So, if you can imagine taking Christmas wrapping paper and wrapping a bowling ball, with the idea you are going to achieve that wrinkle free, you get the approximate challenge in this task.  I personally love the color as I just found the black unattractive,not the paint itself but the fact that there are so many variations of black textures and colors-gloss, flat and matte that I was uninspiring.  Plus I wanted the bike to stand out to give me a chance on the road not to get run over.
    Its a sh#t job if you see it up close as there are too many convex and concave surfaces and even if I used the knifeless tape to try and use different pieces it just added another set of challenges.  I am going to leave this for a year and if I still like the color I will have it painted.  Take a look....
