My vinyl on my VTX is opaque, yes, even the windshields which are hole-y like that on truck rear windows, so yes it can be done. The problem at least for what I've had done on my bike is that the vinyl is fairly thick and curves may prove problematic with the compound curves that are required to completely cover our bikes, that said, if you are trying it yourself and have no experience, I'm making that assumption because you asked, it can be an exercise in futility. There may be thinner vinyls available than what I've had my little bit of experience with, in which case then it could be easier. Very careful heat application, did I say very careful heat application? I tried with a heat gun and got a little to hot, it melted like old fashioned film in home movies. The guy that printed most of the graphics on my VTX does full vehicles, but gets very well compensated, and I'm fully convinced that it is well worth the money.
