I did not use a water soap solution as it needs to be stretched and damages the adhesive.

I'm super sorry for the slow response!!! Like super slow lol

Im about to wrap my mid fairings in carbon and have learned a few tricks as far as creases go...preheat and stretch the vinyl instead of heating/stretching while applying. If you preheat and stretch then let cool in the stretched form it will stay there. Then apply the vinyl and when going on sharp curves apply as well as possible then apply heat which will now shrink the vinyl and remove most creases...thats from a 3m vinyl specialist :)

Any updates on how well the cinyl to a beating to rock and suck. I just bought a wrap kit from motoinkz.com for a fair price with all the tools needed minus the 3M adhesive for tight corners. However, I wanna see how well it holds up to rocks amd debris. Im wrapping my 07 r6 track bike.
