1978 Excella 500 Rear Banana Wrap

Hey Guys,

I had a hard time finding these banana wraps that square off into the bumper. Tell me what you guys think of the before and after so far.

There's a loonie size dimple in the aluminum that drives me nuts but maybe I'm being picky?

I ordered a sheet of aluminum, took the damaged one off, outlined it onto cardboard, traced and cut the new wrap on aluminum.

To get it perfect I should have brought it to a metal shop and had them use an English wheel on it just for a slight curve where my dimple occurred.

Still I think a better alternative than a PVC corner wrap that changes the look of the back. Or spending over $700 from airstream.
