  • Massive thanks to @privatepatterson for a sheet of masks and stencils...

  • No problem.
    Any time.

    • Use a credit card to tickle any air bubbles out of the application sheet.
    • Use low-tack masking tape to mark guides and to help line up your graphics. You can also draw over the application tape with a sharpie if that helps.
    • Gently heat the masks/stencils down once they're in position - a hairdryer is fine.
    • Lay down as little product as you can. If the area is covered, leave it... don't add 'one for luck' or 'just to be sure' - too much product means poor adhesion and furry lines/edges.
    • Use a sharp blade to very carefully lift up the stencils after you've applied the colour (most of us tend to use a Swann Morton No 10 blade on a No 3 handle) - blade marks mean you're bad at painting!
    • A mild solvent on a clean microfibre cloth will remove any glue residue from the vinyl (look for 'Panel Wipe' or 'Antistatic Degreaser'). It should also take care of any "fallout" or accidental overspray if you're careful.

    Drop me an email if you run into any trouble.

  • Looking for a RAL code as close to raw Matt titanium, any thoughts?
