On the heat shrink front the first shop I visited wanted $100nzd/m so that's not gonna happen. :shock:

I'll exploit my dads local trade (auto electrician) for finding a source, then I'll get his discounts on it too... More progress to come!

rode my foam hoods yesterday and they were nice but I can tell they wont last to long. Im not worried about it because I dont ride that bike to much. they weigh only 1.5 grams :) the looks are not the greatest but im ok with it!
