Yes a lot easier! make sure your in a warm environment and use a heat gun (not a hair drier) try to avoid the cheap stuff on eBay, it tends to be very thin and the adhesive is weak, I find the hexis vinyl to be one of the best, great value and easy to work with

Have you used the vinyl cutting tape..? Seen it on you tube can't find where it's sold

Edit just found it

TheLaughingCow 15th March 2014 15:52

I think your talking about knifeless tape, wrapcut pro is pretty good and available from mdp for about 12 (I know as we badgered them into stocking it) great for straight lines or slight curves, I noticed a few eBay sellers were selling it for twice that

what colour vinyl are you after? Only asking as I might be able to cut you a deal on some top quality leftovers.

Although the car is now my daily drive there is still much more to be done

jobs still to do....

Exhaust system
door seals
front grill

TheLaughingCow 18th March 2014 14:05

I may relocate it once the front grill is in

seanick 18th March 2014 21:51

Looks great, and I like the graphics and stripes.

I actually saw a 50 foot gin palace being wrapped last week! Amazing! Going from white to blue. Apparently it's becoming popular because of the restrictions on using two pack paints in the open, more in Europe than here though.

Gin palace? I'm not familiar with that phrase, is that like a castle full of booze?:-)

Luxury boat/yacht. (me thinks)
