Wrap that Matches Ocean Blue Color - Updated 12/8/18
« on: October 24, 2018, 09:15:30 PM »
Has anyone found a matte vinyl wrap that matches the Ocean Blue color of these bikes?  I'm not a big fan of the grey bags on a blue bike and the blue is my preferred bike color.

TIA

UPDATE - Well, I received the wrap samples this week, and since I don't have an XR anymore (hopefully soon) I went up to the local dealer and took the pic below showing all 4 samples next to the Ocean Blue Paint.  None are perfect but I'm partial to number 1 I think.  Anyone interested in these wraps can go to the website indicated or call metrorestyling.com.  Make note of the wrap model number/item name of course.

I'm a little uncertain how the wrap will work on a basically square side case as I'd prefer a no-seam job but I can't see how you would not have excess material that would need to be removed when you pull the wrap over the 4 edges of the of the vertical portion of the case, working your way toward the edge of the plastic.  Any input would be appreciated.

Ok, I just came across these options.  Not sure this is the route I will go, but I'll post these up and see what folks think.  To my eye, the second looks closest...I'm going to request samples if that's an option.

I ordered 4 samples from these guys (the above colors and 2 others that look reasonably close):

I've bought from them in the past so I know they are a quality group.  Since I no longer have an XR, I'll have to find an Ocean Blue one I can compare to....but if one of these is close it will be good to know as I'm still targeting an Ocean Blue bike in the near term. 

FWIW, I also noticed in another thread here, the Ocean Blue Met paint code is M4E in case its just easier/better to paint them.

If you’re keeping it long term, I’d certainly get them painted, with code in hand I doubt it would cost a great deal and would look excellent ?!?
Not personally qualified to confuse cats, but I can recommend an extremely good service.

I was surfing the interweb today and stumbled across this photo.  Its an Ocean Blue with matching painted panniers (not a fan of the top box though...).  I think this is the route I'll go...looks great to me.

Indeed, wipe the topbox and go for it
