Blacked out fork tubes

I thought I would see what blacked out fork tubes on my Rally Red color schemed AT looked like. Picked up some black contact paper and applied to upper gold tubes. I think it looks pretty bad ass, although I don't know what the longevity of the adhesive will be. Nevertheless, it was cheap and easy and the results were instant.

Spray on some plasti dip. I have used it on some things and it does pretty good and you can peal it off anytime you want.

x2 do not like gold fork legs and black rims on the red AT.
