Do it yourself Tank Grips
Posted 11 July 2012 - 06:25 PM
I saw some vinyl shelf liner at Lowe's. Figured $7 was better if I have to cut 'em myself anyway.
Question is, what adhesive do I use? Need spray on stuff that will stick, take the heat but still peel off easily later on.

Just buy the real deal, man. It's cool you wanna DIY, but in this case, it ain't gonna stand up and work as well which is key. If it doesn't work, might as well put a White Snake decal on it as it will be as effective.

So here's the result. I don't like the shape so we'll do a different version that conforms more with the tank.
My kid got a little fancy with the exacto knife and wanted to put a VFR logo on it.
Not a bad first try at it, but if you are using my idea with the headliner spray adhesive you will surely have better results if you cover the entire notched area of the tank that your knee can have contact with - that way the protective pad will less likely to move or "smear" from the glued area since it would have a much larger bond to the tank sides.
Nice ride by the way!
