Re: Vinyled pillars

Off to check out this vinyl!

I hope it's a good color/match *crosses fingers*

Re: Vinyled pillars

Picked up the vinyl -- the matte black looks like a perfect match when held against the black trim on the WK. I'm pretty sure I broke the last of my hobby knives so I'll have to pick one up tomorrow. I should have this done tomorrow and I'll try and get a ton of pics and explain the process I use in detail (How-to).

Re: Vinyled pillars

body shops have masking tape that has like rigid plastic on one side. thinner than a cc but stiff plastic. they use it to hold the trim open....

use water under the viny while positiong and to help remove the bubbles. a cc or similar to smooth it out.

What does cc mean? Most of the trim comes off pretty easily.

So you're saying that the surface doesn't need to be 100% dry for the vinyl to effectively adhere? How does the water eventually escape?

Ok, cool. I actually just came across the same method you're describing...

http://www.ehow.com/how_2285387_car-...et-method.html

My concern is that any dampness or water between the vinyl and the car would cause the vinyl to lift... I guess that's not the case though.

No. I will check it out.

Re: Vinyled pillars

Benno! Would you be able to go out to your Jeep and snap some pics of the vinyl in the door jam (and where it terminates), vinyl in the pillar area, and area where the vinyl reaches the window molding(s)?

I'm hoping to tackle this tomorrow and some close up pics would be awesome!
