Looking forward to it. Which moto's? I've got 950s, and I'm surprised I don't see them more often.

ORO LiteDOTs

Installed ORO LED Tail Lights a couple of days ago. Enjoyed the top down this week, first real time this summer it hasn't been unbearable. Unfortunately though I would trade it for some rain, since an ant's fart seems to be enough to start a massive fire here in Texas.

Top trim of dash and door panels were removed to spray.

The rest taped up and sprayed. Couldn't figure out how to remove the grab bar and didn't feel like messing with the passenger airbag. Over spray rubs off anyway.

After a little sanding and de-greasing, I used Rustoleum rattle-can bedliner to touch up my rusty door handles. Now they good!

Washed and waxed it, since I haven't done either since I got it and it was dirty then. Vast improvement!

I think it will be durable if you spray on more than 2 coats. I cheaped out and only did 1 heavy coat.

I chose it because

1. Very easy to use, mistakes aren't permanent, just peel off and respray. If it's damaged, cut the section off and respray, it bonds to the other sections.
2. It's not permanent, if you don't like it, it pulls right off. Under $7 a can to learn something new.
3. No prep work, I'm very lazy.
4. It gives a nice textured feel. I spend a lot of time inside cars. I always start tapping panels to see if it's made of cheap plastic, how it feels, is it built cheaply etc. It honestly brought up the class a notch IMO.

I have one of the speaker panels done in krylon fusion. Looks the same but still feels like plastic. That piece is now permanently black.

Make sure it dries well before screwing things in. The screws can pull the plasti dip off. It did on one of my door panels. I just sprayed right ontop of it and called it a day . Mines is a 14 year old jeep, who really cares?

Plug and play. $98.00 plus shipping from quadratec.com huge difference over the old sealed beam lights. The Deltas say the are E (Europe) rated and DOT accept. I couldn't believe the difference last night. Very happy with them and very simple.

Yesterday I rust-o-leom/painted the door handles,because they were in the beginning stages of surface rust and was starting to see a little metal.

This morning took it out to be washed,waxed and a good coating of exterior protectant on the fenders,front bumper (JEEP) and rear bumper.....
