Currently speaking with different detailers around Sydney area looking to get film protection and Opti-Coat for my AWS 959 (pick her up in 5 days!!).

I am wondering what the consensus is around a full wrap vs specific/custom wrap of film? From what I've been quoted, a full wrap is just over double the price of the custom coverage. I have attached two images showing the coverage of the custom wrap.

Also, are there any AWS 959 owners out there with Opti-Coat paint protection? I see there is an option for matte finishes but not really that much detail.

Love to hear what others think and have done :smile2:

I opted for a kit wrap from Tankslapper. Here's the write up. Hope this will help your research.

Cheers

I'm not sure if anyone on here has applied a nano/glass-coating onto their AWS 959 yet, but according to some other detailing sites, should be fine with some degraded matte-ness (becomes somewhat glossy).

Here's two sources, with the second one being a direct comparison to pre-OptiCoat matte and post-optiCoat matte on black paint:


In terms of being on white paint, you could probably only tell under certain lighting conditions. Most likely, it won't be Arctic White Silk anymore, but probably White Silk.

Thanks for those comments, had a great read through them all. Still yet to see someone with film on the AWS finish, can certainly see your point on a slight degraded matte-ness with the opti-coat.

I am going to swing by the detailer and get a small matte film tester done to see how well it marries up to the paint finish and let you know how it looks :)

@BigT - I know pictures are worth a thousand words sometimes and others they don't do it justice - we'd still like to see :D

Had mine fully wrapped with XPEL and the owner of the shop threw in a full Modesta glass coating for free to use my bike for marketing. Only ended up paying $300 but anywhere else it would be $2-3K.

Great find there @DPPD! I've been quoted for a full wrap at the $2k AUD mark so is a tough bullet to bite. Thus leaning more towards the partial kit wrap.

Do you have a red or white 959?

Put her in the shop this morning for the wrap and Opti-Coat, will be ready for pickup tomorrow afternoon.

Fingers crossed it comes out well against the white finish.

Will post pics tomorrow.

I have a red 959 with Opticoat Pro +, I was assuming that it would prevent my bike from getting swirl marks but that's not what it does :(
I guess I'll go for a film protection as well.

I had the Opticoat Pro + done on my gloss black Monster and equally not that impressed.
