Nope, but might be worth doing. Just a caution...large scale chunks of vinyl like that are tough to apply without wrinkles/airbubbles...especially if there are curves/contours on the body.

Agreed^^6 Especially a compound curve, My brother does Vinyl signs,painted signs ect and I learnd that the hardway puttin carbon fiber wrap on my dash. it didn't work. I would suggest an adhesion promoter if your putting it on plastic. some plastics have a oily sheen to them and it won't allow some decals to adhere properly. Clean it good first too.

I tried putting vinyl on my race bike's tail section for number plate backgrounds...there is a concave radius that meets a convex radius then come together and form yet a third radius...I decided to paint them after about ten minutes.

You will be much better off doing small sections rather than a full sheet.

Its a pain in the a## you have to cut and piece it together use a heat gun will help but don't over heat the wrap, get some different size bondo spreaders to help with the air bubbles and a straight pin to perice holes in the air bubbles and press out.

I used this kit.
http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/links/link.jsp?id=0005917512671a&type=product&cmCat=SEARCH_all&returnPage=search-results1.jsp&Ntk=Products&QueryText=atv+tape&sort=all&Go.y=8&_D:hasJS=+&N=0&Nty=1&hasJS=true&Go.x=17&_DARGS=/cabelas/en/common/search/search-box.jsp.form23&_dyncharset=ISO-8859-1

It worked very well. I removed the racks,fenders and seat. Took a while but it sure looked a lot better than the HUNTER ORANGE color it was before. It has been on for 3 years and has faded some. Click on image for a larger size.

we did a Camo4u wrap on our Honda and it turned out really nice. Been on there for about 2 years now with no issues...
