and lastly, IM DOOONNNNEEEEE, ITS ON.
so to rethink, and recap. it took some messing around, and learning as i went to do this. imo, anyone can do this, as long and you have patience, and really think about what your doing as you lay it down.
when, not if, you cut it, its cut. period. you better make sure its in the right spot.
looking back, it was way more time consuming than i thought it was goin to be. but, at the same time, i had about 3 hours to do the first side, but only about 1.5 hours to do the last side.
alot of that time savings was i did end up cutting that one decal down to three inches wide. and am i ever kicking my self in the a$$ for not doin that to the other side. that made laying that piece so easy, its not funny. that was the answer right there. i dont know what the question was, but that was 100% the answer.
would i do it again, i'd have to say yes. it's not as hard as i had imagined. the vinyl was real easy to work with, layed nice, cut nice, stuck nice.
it wasnt till after i got the first side done that i decided i didnt want complete coverage. by that i mean, around the vents, and what would be under the windshield. for some reason, i feel i want to paint those surfaces. i REALLLLLLLYYYYY wish i would have come to that conclusion BEFORE i put the vinyl down. but, what can i say. projects like this usually get changed a couple times mid project.
so, heres the end result of vinyl. couple quick pics.
ill try to get it pushed outside hopefully tomorrow, and see if i can get better pics. ones that dont show the glare of the overhead lights in the garage. i dont have carbs or clutches, goodwin performance has them, but i guess a little man power never hurt anyone.
ill post up more as i get the paint done and hood vents on. im goin to strip the paint off the tunnel, and i have not decided what to do there. i got enough vinyl left over i could put vinyl there, or i might paint it, or i might just leave it bare aluminum. i dont know. what you guys think? the paint has to come off anyways, as its peeling, its just a matter what i do after that.
