Nice graphics. You have inspired me to do my own.
If you are doing your own..
I got the 50 yard rolls of vinyl.
Get 1 roll for each color. Especially if you are doing double layers. (most of mine is double layers)
For rivets... poke around it with a pin, then apply a small amount of heat (heat gun) wait a sec or 3 brush with a rivet brush. I used a hand/nail brush...be gentle.
If you have bolts or large screws. Try to remove them 1st. Then re install after the graphic is on.
I JUST realized this on the last few. duh
Don't be afraid to cut larger graphics in half before you apply.
WAY easier to handle. No one will know but you.
Slice / cut to go around sharp bends.
Don't cut all your vinyl 1st.
Cut only what you can do in a day.
Because things LOOK different on the truck, then they do on photoshop or mockup.
Thought I had my sizes all worked out.
But I was off on a lot of it.
Dealing with the rivets takes 10 times longer than a smooth surface.
The "sweet dreams", and associated text was probably done in 30 min. No rivets.
The sandwich beside it had tons of rivets. Probably took over 2 hours.
The little extruded beam that runs down the entire side of the truck is a total nightmare.
Avoid it if you can.
It is basically a c channel with rivets every couple of inches.
Other than that, it was a total joy to do.
But considering that around here, they charge $500 just to do some lettering on the back window of your car....
