Back together, and run up to temp for the 1st time.  New idle valve is almost too much so I might mess with restrictorss.
That's just Sexy.

Thanks ;D
It's a couple of years old now. But I still get people who will tap on the tank to "check" if it's really CF or not. :P

Holds up fine to drips of gas and such?

Thinking about wrapping my 1100F. I got rid of my paint booth a while back to make space for another machine, and I hate painting anyhow.

I try very hard to avoid drips and spills, but it's not bad if cleaned up quickly.
With the first wrap I had on her, I had a small "weep" of fuel from the petcock that would consistently drip onto the left sidecover. Even after a couple of years of that, all it did was discolor the wrap a few shades darker. I've since repaired the petcock, and have had no issues. I replaced the first wrap mainly because much better CF patterns became available, but it was about 8-9 years old and had faded some. The quality of vinyl used will determine it's longevity, but all of them will eventually "show their age". There is no way to "buff out" vinyl like you can with paint.
