Vinyl CP overlay
« on: April 09, 2019, 11:08:04 pm »
I was hoping someone could give me some ideas of where to purchase a good quality adhesive backed vinyl that I can use to cover a metal CP.  I am looking for basic black vinyl, but the only one I have found online was from the SuzoHapps site.  They have a minimum order of $50 and the shipping cost is over $30.  I cant see spending over $80 for vinyl when all I need is 12" x 24" piece.  Any help is appreciated.  Thanx.

Byoac's unofficial source for generic vinyl for around 20 years.  ;)

The basic black self-adhesive rolls work good but the adhesive isn't super strong.  For my pacman I spray painted the metal control panel and applied the vinyl while it was still slightly tacky and it turned out great.
