Control Panel Vinyl Repair
« on: February 16, 2018, 11:25:41 am »
Hi Folks, Ive got an old wooden CP with a nice Vinyl Graphic. Unfortunately it looks like a wood screw has been driven through the underside and has, very slightly, poked the sharp end out the Vinyl. I dont want to spend money on replacement graphics (as it isnt mine) - the hole is tiny. Does anyone have any ideas? The Vinyl looks to be good quality and has raised up around the hole a little creating a tiny dimple - it would be nice to try and at least flatten it down a little so its less noticeable.

Any ideas?

Maybe you can inject some glue with syringe and needle?
I have used that to flatten air bubbles on wallpaper
And probably you can put the needle through the screw hole .
Then flatten bubble  with credit card

Dimple could also be some wood chip underneath.
In that case you might need to make a small cut in vinyl to remove chip.
