Hello! I am having bubble issues with some vinyl on a cargo van. The van has grooves where the windows should be. I am using Avery 900 and layering it, 3 layers in some places. In the grooves, the vinyl keeps pulling away and creating bubbles. I have re-vinyled one side, the side with deeper grooves, because of the bubbles. The first time I used application fluid because of the size and the heat at the time. I allowed the application fluid to dry 24 hours between the first and second layer. The second time I applied the vinyl dry. The vinyl still is pulling away in the grooves after a few days in the heat. I noticed a couple of places in the grooves where the paint was chipping, but the vinyl is pulling away in places where the paint is not chipped. After the first time, I went back a couple weeks later and tried using the heat gun and popping the bubbles with a needle. They layed down for a day or 2 and pulled back away. I assumed there was still fluid under the vinyl even though it appear dry after waiting 24 hours. I decided to just redo that side again dry hoping to solve the problem. The second time it layed down fine and a few days later it was pulled away again. Even in areas where there was just one layer of vinyl. I have not had issues with this in the past. Once it has been heated and conformed to the groove, it usually stays. Any ideas on what is causing the vinyl to pull away? Is it too many layers? The vinyl itself? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
