Default Blackout Cheese Wedge

Hello all,

I am slowly blacking out every part of my 8-ball. Since its an '07 most of it was blacked out. I already have the mirrors, bars and headlight (like the kingpin)

I just got the left side cheese wedge with the ignition hole. But my Vic shop says I cannot use that same cheese wedge (with the ignition hole plugged) because there is no way to attach it.

Does anyone know of a cheese wedge I could put on the right side?

Victory sells the wedges. I put the Hammer S black one on my bike.

i have two extra wedges collecting dust, FYI they are all the same you just need to find the 100ci emblems to put on them and then find a way to attatch them, i will paint them for you even for a little extra $

I have an 07 Vegas 8ball. My victory dealer special ordered the black cheese wedge for the ignition side.

The 100CI is just taped on with doubled sided tape. So you can take it off.

Default Blackout Wedges

I notice this thread has a few months on it, but I just blacked mine out over the weekend.
Both wedges had the keyhole punch-out. The left side needs a little "something" in the wedge area. Both sides are the same color/gloss but the lighting makes them look different. Went with satin black to try and match up the engine block and head covers rather than the gloss of the paint.

$10 and 3 hrs time got me to the finished product:

After I put the cheese wedge on I hated it. I wanted something glossy to match the paint. I am returning it to the shop.
