|For those of you interested, it took using a 3M adhesive removal wheel|
to get that baked on stuff off. It was slow going...let me tell you. I still have a lot of touch ups to do before the hood is completely stripped, but of any method I tried this is the only one that was working. I'd post some photos, but it doesn't seem like photobucket is working.
I'll have to adopt the mantra of "buy quality, buy once" into my vinyl hood cover shopping
|What decal/brand did you decide to go with now? Just curious. I'm about 50/50 on starting to do hood decals for AZFJ non-members.|
So, my first decal was from alphavinyl, purchase off Amazon. I looked at my order history and I was a bit off from when I thought I had gotten it. I got in summer time 2014, and noticed the cracking in early 2016. Cracking got really bad and covered the entire thing by the end of that year. I purchased a new one from Crawlerado because I felt more confident that it would hold up because of reviews I'd read. However, I knew my wife and I were planning on moving and a 3 car garage was a must, so I delayed putting it on. Took us a while to find a house that met all of our criteria, but now that I know my rig won't be sitting in the sun 24/7 I knew it was time to put it on. Just became a huge pain in the ass project I didn't expect
Sorry, probably more detail than you asked for. Crawlerado. Hah. Oh, also if I remember correctly I was in email contact with the owner and he made me feel good about the quality
And another note about the project: Apparently 3M Adhesive Remover is made to remove 3M Adhesive I've done all I can at this point.
