View Full Version : re pasting graphics???
December 30th, 2001, 03:37 PM
i bought my bike used, it has fmf graphics on it! the shroud graphics are in good shape but on the tank its looking pretty raunchy! its starting to peel off! they are super thick graphics and i am almost positive you could repaste them! but i don't know what to use to get them off! gasoline won't do it! and if i do get them off what should i use as a good adhesive to repaste them???

This might work, but i have never tested it. There is this stuff called "super 77" adhesive spray. The stuff is amazing. it will glue anything together. it is a spray that comes in a can. you would need to carefully peel the grapic off, lay it face down on a piece of cardboard, spray it with super 77 (made by 3m) and then carefully pick it up and place it on your bike. I am sure this would permanently stick it on your bike. only problem is that there is zero room for error. we use it for lots of stuff, and i am sure it would work. you can get it at some hardware stores, and art supply for sure.

I AM NOT SURE IF THAT WILL WORK, BECAUSE MY BROTHER USED A SIMILIAR PRODUCT ON HIS, AND IT MADE BUBBLES AND RUINED THE PLASTIC, I WOULD SAY, JUST TAKE OFF THE TANK PART, IF ITS ABOUT TO FALL APRAT, HOW MUCH LONGER CAN IT REALLY LAST?

i can last a lot longer! they guy that did the graphics a few years ago did a raunchy job and i wanna do a better job to make it look better! i peeled off a bit of the tank graphics myself! they aren't peeling! i jsut wanna know what i can use as an adhesive!

this probably won't work but try anyway
heat the plastic with a hairdryer to make the glue sticky again
it didn't work too good for me

thanx for all your suggestions! after reading that no one really has any true solutions to the problem! i think i am just gonna get some new yellow shrouds and get a nice big 11'' warpt sticker on it!
