How extensive of a design?
Will it be freehand or with taping off or stencil?
Nothing to crazy. Looking to tap off a design in the center of the hood black.

That is what I was hoping to hear. Thanks

So how hard is it to get a vinyl decal to stick to monstaliner?

Regular window vinyl sticks
Stretchy vinyl used for wraps seems to stick better

We cut these decals in-house from cast vinyl which is the stretchy stuff

I have a close up of the round decal that I can post tonight


I used a light spray of glass cleaner and pressed and pressed and pressed...

It took time and patients, but they have held up well so far.

Glass cleaner first to clean/prep the area, or glass cleaner under sticker? Want to make sure I get it right... Jeep looks great now and don't want to mess it up.

Here's what I know:

Wait at least 7 days before putting decals over ML
Wash with Dawn and hot water and let dry
Glass cleaner or Isopropyl alcohol is fine also to clean surface to remove oils from your skin
Use clean, lint free rags only to clean surface

I work for a sign shop, we use alcohol to prep before applying decals. If its something big we use application fluid to put it down, but a squirt bottle full of water mixed with 2-3 drops (literally) of dish soap can be used too. A wet application, would require completely wetting the surface, removing the paper from the decal, wetting the glue side of the decal and lay in place. Wetting both surfaces allows you to move the decal to the correct location, then squeegee out the water from the middle out, using a felt covered squeegee. Should dry overnight...

-Both-

I always use glass cleaner when applying decals. Once it drys the decal will stick the same as if you did not use it. The advantage is being able to move the decal around to get the perfect positioning and it makes it very easy to get bubbles out with out using a pin to pop them. A clean surface is also very important.

Kerosene heater

I'm in a little bit of a predicament here it's about 15 degrees in Wisconsin and im waiting to apply monster liner on the floor of the Jeep but I know the instructions say it has to be at least 50 degrees my garage gets about 45 degrees with my kerosene heater on so I was wondering if the chemicals in the monster liner would do damage from the kerosene heater. thanks

I think I'd be more concerned about the heater doing damage to you and your house if you burn yourself up
