The aim of the DHaRCO wrap is flexibility to make your own creation, to set your bike apart & match yourfavourite party jersey.
We’ve included a Top and Down Tube but don’t let this limit your imagination. These could be combined together to wrap a whole section. The pattern is designed to align in order to combine panels.
We haven’t made assumptions around the shape you want for the wrap on your bike. Instead we’re trusting you as capable adults and providing a ruler (cut this out), so you can measure and mould the wrap to fit your bikes curves.
Measure and draw on the back the shape you’re going for. Remember measure twice, cut once. A tip for making the perfect template is to apply multiple layers of masking tape, shape it on your frame - then use to trace onto the wrap paper. Rounded edges as much as possible are recommended to finish off your cuts.
Clean your frame thoroughly to remove any dirt. Ensure to dry well. Take your time to place the wrap, aligning first your middle point. It is not like a traditional style stickerand can be moved around, before its final resting place.
Once in place apply pressure to stick the wrap to the frame. Start at the middle and push outward slowly, using a clean dry cloth, flattening as you go. The air release weave is designed to assist you to push bubbles out - so take your time and you’ll get a cracker of a result. You can peel and re-apply pressureuntil it is smooth and even.
Do not wet the wrap. It should be applied with no water on a dry clean surface.
Post heat the material, if it has been stretched significantly. This will reset the vinyls memory (use a hairdryer if you don’t have a heat gun). Re-press when cool to ensure maximum adhesion.
This paper may be long gone by then, but when the time comes to remove the wrap, heat it before removing slowly.
Most of all have fun and get creative. The devil’s in the details, make it count.
