Can you see me now ??  A $10 Experiment.

I recently bought a 2017 demo Revo 13 in dune color.  Most of my yaks have been Yum Yum Yellow, b/c I like the color, and more importantly the visibility.  You don't get much visibility with "dune", so I bought some contact paper and Gorilla tape- see the results below.  It's ugly, but that's OK.  More interesting than plain "concrete grey".

As for the new yellow Revo 13 next to it, it's my friend's new yak.

I like it, but why stop there?  Add more to the bottom for rub and keel protection.  :smt003

contact paper as base layer, so so I have less of a sticky mess to clean up if I take it off. 90% underneath the tape is covered by contact paper.  Only the outer edges are covered by tape.
