I have an internally routed hardtail frame I want to wrap. I would like to leave the letters exposed. Does anyone have any tips or tricks? Anything helps, thanks!

Why though? Are you wrapping it a different color other than clear?

You could take some paper and sketch over it with the letters behind to give you an indentation, and then transfer that to the wrap. Might not be perfect though and would likely require some trimming and non-OCD on your end

yeah, why would you want to leave the letters exposed? I would cover mine up, if I was wrapping in clear

I'm gonna wrap it in Realtree or something like that.

oh thats gonna look sick. Something you could do is just take the decals off, buy some new of the same decals, and put them on over the wrap

Good idea. Or, to keep the cost down, should I just cover the decals and letters with Realtree.

hundred percent up to you mate, but if you really want the decals, you would have to buy knew, i don't see any other way that you could wrap that

but If you are not going to have decals, I would take them off so that you don't have the bumps from them

Good thought, I wouldn't have done that and it might've looked terrible.

yeah, I know on my bikes at least, the decals are slightly raised

I don't know if it's paint or decals yet, but I'll find out when I get the bike.

yeah, if its paint, you might want to do like a black coat (or color of the frame) over the paint, cause depending on how transparent your wrap is, you might still see it, but not be able to read it, and it will look horrendous
