Vinylwrap my 9bot1

Recommended Posts

Interesting, never thought of vinyl wrapping a wheel, but it actually looks quite good!

Looks good @Jag_Rip. Did you take a heat gun to it to smooth things out? I've been sitting on some white carbon fiber vinyl and grip tape that I'm eventually going to install/wrap. Just need to find the motivation to do it. lol.

Thanks guys ^_^

Dont tell noone, it just looks great from far, but up close, the perfectionist would nope it out the window. There are several spots with bubbles, but since I fully expect to scratch it more, I'll just redo it with fresh wrap at a later time.

I didnt even have a squeegee, I improvised one with an old creditcard wrapped in papertissue to avoid scratches, didnt succeed on that either. :unsure:. Just watch out for the screws, the metal is pretty soft and a powerscrewdriver can crush them.

Yeah, I am opting for black plasti-dip for the Batterycover and a yet undecided color for the outer ring... I looked at the carbon vinyl as well but my 2 left hands (IT guys and the real world.. :huh:) probably would've fucked it up. Thats why I went for a cheaper option for my first try..

Thank you :-) it took me about 2 hours in total to disassemble, wrap and reassemble for both sides. I think wrapping the ring could take a little longer due to the inclined surface and will need some different vinyl (3d stretchable like for cars) to get it smooth and flat.

Slight update since it was a nice sunday to let the paint dry. Its simple matte black spraypaint in 2 layers on the outside of the pedals as well as the battery cushions. Now that silver hinge where the pedals attach sticks out even more <_<  One for the next time I disassemble the bot... And I attached a Laser/LED Bikelight that hopefully makes sure anybody faster than me leaves me some space.. For the front I use a headlamp, I found it better to have light wherever youre looking instead of just straight forward.

Had a go with some Vinyl wrap. Never used it before and struggled a bit with the rounded edges not to get creases.

Wish Spare batteries were cheaper I would bring my NB to Oz without battery (avoid airline problems etc) and then pop in a battery and off we go. I suppose I could get a battery use while on holiday and then stick it on ebay or something.

Who is your dealer in Oz @Phil Wright ?

Hi Tree, here in Oz it's 

Nine Bot One Australia on Facebook.

I didnt buy mine through them, I did it through Ebay via China its in transit as we speak. I found them after I purchased mine and saked them a few questions about accessories etc, they didnt seem to be too stocked up, saying that they only carried handles, and tape etc....

A pity because I have the feeling it'll explode here, the State Govt is very Green politically speaking, bike lanes have been installed on our city streets here, and more and more are on bikes, skateboards and 2 wheeled scooters...

A legit Ninebot Agencey here with all the bits and peices will do well as more and more discover the EUC world
