Here is my new winter rack made up from a scrap rack that I modified.The idea being that with using the bike as my only form of transport, this
would be easier to keep clean during winter.Still got the rad cover under construction,also to keep corrosion free during winter.

Very nice, did you add the lower arms, or were they on the original rack?

this might sound silly because the stuff is sticky backed but if you spray the back of the sticker and the surface where it is being put on with a very mild fairy liquid solution and then use a plastic spatula or similar tool to squeeze the water out from under the sticker you will get no air bubbles at all.
