Default Anyone do vinyl wraps?

I'm considering it for my ZR7...but looking at the how to vids on youtube everyone seems to cut small pieces and seam it all together. Have any of you guys managed to cover a tank in a single sheet?

I tried it, probably possible to do an older, simpler tank shape in one piece, very difficult to do a modern sportbike that way. Be prepared to waste several full tank size pieces figuring out how to do it if it turns out to be possible - you'll be frustrated with the large piece of vinyl sticking to itself, attracting cat ass and hair and dust out of the air to the adhesive side (which all shows through - stuff is thin) etc etc

I ended up doing my tank in three pieces, one for the top/rear and two side panels.

No pics from me! I gave up. Vinyl cost too much to experiment with and if I'm going to have a sub-par job...well, I can do that with spray paint.
