Well I installed the Clear Scuff Pads on my sidecovers and they turned out great and you can hardly tell they are there. I installed the pads on my saddlebags and I had a battle with them.I finally got them installed and getting the air bubbles out from under them isvirtually impossible.I thought if i posted this topic I could find out if anyone else had luck installing theirs.

I put the side panel clear bras on, but have not had the courage to put them on the top of my bags. Getting the air bubbles out of theside panels was not fun. I was very disappointed in the kit from Victory overall. For $100 I expected covers for the side panels, front of saddle bags and saddle bag lids. All you get are 4 pieces, 2 side panels & 2saddle bag lids. thesaddle bag lidpieces only cover the front 1/2 of the of the lid. they end right at the lock push button. I may just put them on the front of the bags so my wifes boots don't bang up the front of the bags.

i didn't buy the Vic kit but went to a 3M dealer and for $50 bucks bought enough 3M paint protection film to do the front of the bags, leading edge of the sidecovers, and the rear of the gas tank where my jacket rubs.

I followed the instructions in the video an it worked out well. I used a water spray bottle with a drop of dish soap in it. I no trouble getting all the air bubbles out. The nice thing with buying the sheet of film was I had enough to do all sorts of areas with plenty left over for practicing and mistakes.

There is a dealer at earlmich.com he sells it you can get a 15"Wx10yards for abour $60 or so last I checked that is plenty. Also agree with using spray bottle with soap (dawn unscented) if not go to local hardware store and look in the window area for a the tinting for windows and see if the have application spray a little bottle will do everything you want and more. Could even have a application party and get several bikes done at once.
Oh I know this because I do decals as a side hobby.

+1 on Tank Slapper. You can get a large set of films for about what the Victory bag lid set costs and be able to protect a lot more surfaces that are prone to scuffs and rock chips.
