So here’s a question I don’t think has been asked here before…
I want to customise my motorcycle (2009 Harley FXD), myself, on the cheap. Rather than just painting the tank and fenders, I’d like to make some sort of sculpted cover or shell so I can do some sculpting in 3D - I’m thinking maybe some HR Giger-style growths with the steel visible below.
What materials could I use? It has to be unaffected by water, sunlight, vibration, and heat from driving on sunny days, and hold paint well. I suppose it could be flexible, but not like fabric or leather as it has to hold its shape. Would be interesting if I could make it removable with hinges and build in a pocket. I’m thinking maybe there’s some epoxy or putty that would work.
Any tips or recommendations for materials that might work? I’m in Brazil, so supply might be a problem. Any suggestions on how I could do this without necessarily having to have the bike disassembled for a few days?
