Hello everyone I did this van last saturday and used Metamark M7. The dark blue background and the light blue are all vinyl. I have also attached a data sheet of the vinyl used by me. Due to being a budget conscious person he didn't want to go for printing. But I experienced that after a day, the vinyl started to peel off and looked like air has gone into it. On the upper right picture (the one with the sliding door, I saw the air bubble sprouting up from the bottom edge (AUTO AIR CO.. side and CONDITIONING side). The blue vinyl is actually in tewo pieces. 1. The guy told me after I put the vinyl that he had some patchwork done on the door and painted it using cheap spray can of white paint, after which he waxed it. Can this be the reason for the vinyl peeling off mates? 2. He started being pushy in the first instance, so I coudn't get enough time for the dark blue vinyl to get dried up before I started with the stickers in light blue on it. Can this be the reason why cinyls are bubbling and peeling off?. I used soapy water to put the dark blue vinyl on and started with the light blue after an hour or so. I need to redo the blue bit. But as I tried to peel the vinyl off, I noticed it is stripping some paint from the side where he has done patchwork. Please advise: 1. How can I remove the vinyl with minimal damage to the paint? 2. How long do I need to let that dark blue vinyl background sit before I move on with the light blue stickers please? 3. How good is the alcohol (methanol) to remove wax from the stickers area please? Any other thing you would recommend? Awaiting replies and inputs Singh
