Mr F. worked in a sign shop the last time i talked to him, could cut any vynl idea you could put into a computer graphic, even put it on the vehicle like an expert, btw Mr. F, I never did say thanks for the rockshop sticker on the windshield of the Jeep, or the other half a million things you did when we were hanging out.

So, if you want to do some Red Honda VFR graphics, I would do things no one spells "" as well as you do while durabaking a jeep.

I have a little sign business on the side. Let me know what you need. I can get you vinyl by the foot that you can do with what you desire or I can put it in the putter and let the machine do the cutting.

Ask mr f. He is my good buddy. I used to work at the same shop bout 5 years ago. The vinyl is good stuff, but you will want to clear over it for sure for Best looks and durability. What u lookin to get done?

If you use good quality vinyl there is no need to clear over...unless you just want to smooth the edge to make it look like it is all paint. Then you need to use a good clear so that it does not yellow. You will need to check the clear for compatibility with the vinyl, some paints have solvents that will attack the vinyl. I have vinyl on my bike, reflective orange, and it ain't going nowhere.

^^^ Good point.

Ive also learned through my projects that the quality of vinyl matters too w the clearcoat. I have been using the aerosal can stuff from O'reillys.
