    Vinyl anyone?

    Does anyone know any good techniques on how to lay vinyl? I'm building an enclosure and the outside is wrapped in vinyl. I'm having a hard time with it bunching up in areas. I worked from the middle out. The heat gun and stretching is not enough. Is there some designs that you just can't use vinyl on? I think that I just don't know the technique. It's very frustrating and I have so much respect for the ones that can do this good. Please any help would be great. Also if you could tell me how to post pictures than I will show you what I am working on. Thanks

    you must get the pics online first, and then when you are posting, click the button above that looks like mountains and insert the direct link to the pics...they will show

    One is before resin and the other is after the fiberglass and I tried something else. I mixed resin with long strand fiberglass that comes in a can and dries hard as hell to smooth the ruffness on the outside. It would have been a great Idea if I would have taken more time with it. It was alot of sanding to smooth it out.

    Re: Vinyl anyone?

    I haven't used that. I'm new to this and I'm just trying things right now. I'll have to give it a shot on my next one. Is it for finishing?

    Re: Vinyl anyone?

    There is an older thread about this somewhere that should come up in a search. But one method is to cut panels of 1/4" plywood or MDF and wrap them individually then attach the wrapped 1/4" thick panels to cover the baffle or side panels to help conceal seams. There are pictures in the older thread on vinyl.
