You'd be better off getting the plastic Hydrographic dipped. more durable, and more uniform.

I had a Bayou 300 a few years ago, and used the wrap to cover the whole atv and it held up well over the years. Make sure it is the cloth wrap and not some duct tape that some sell. It takes some planning and patience when installing since you will be fitting and cutting each piece, but looks very good when done, and who cares if it's perfect, it's Camo

The hydrographics process is what all the manufacturers use for they stock camo options. It's longer lasting than a wrap because if it gets scratched it won't start peeling like a wrap does if the hydrographic was done properly. It also has better uv resistance and will maintain its color better. for camo you really don't need the uniform look, but for other types, like a carbon fiber graphic or a graphic design like skulls or what not you don't want weird lines going through the design. There are also WAY more options for hydrographic designs than there are for wraps. so finding the right camo for you is easier too. No, it's not cheap. but it looks way better than a wrap does.

Like I said, who cares if it's perfect....its camo. This fella may not have a hydrographics place near him, plus he might not want to completely disassemble the body of his 4 wheeler, and pay shipping and the added cost of hydrographics. The camo wrap can be done in your garage with a pair of scissors and an xacto knife. Does it look as nice as hydrographics...no, but when you are done with it you can look at it and relish in the thought that you did it yourself, and saved a lot of money by doing it yourself
