Cosmetic Shrink Wrap: Has anyone done it?

Has anyone wrapped their fairings in cosmetic shrink wrap rather than painting?

How hard is it?

Appearance?

Suppliers?

If you look at a KLR w/ "camo" - I believe it's the same stuff.

There are plenty of YouTube videos of guys wrapping bikes. Not for the impatient person for sure. They say quality stuff can last up to 5 years depending on time in the sun among other factors.

Wished I had done it when I bought mine.
I should have had it done (too much technique and patience) for me.
I think the removable stuff would be the ticket.
