Default Body Wraps

How well do they hold up?

Every wrap I have used has lasted longer than the life of the body. I have used Fastlane Graphix and Upgrade several times. They have never peeled back in any spot and help make the body more sturdy to last longer as well.

I've got about ~5 gallons on mine at about a year old. it's not perfect looking at this point with 100's of laps on it, but it's still going.

The one thing I would say is make sure you keep the heat of the pipe/manifold and head away from it or protected from it. I just wrapped my 2058 and 2013 pipe with a header wrap. Hopefully that will keep the body/wrap from bubbling.
