    Default adhesive for sticking carbon fibre vynil

    Ive just carbon wrapped my silver tailgate trim and it looks excellent but i dont really trust the glue thats on the back so ive decided to glue the back of the trim to lock it in.

    Can anybody suggest a good weather proof adhesive that will keep the stuff stuck down

    Thanks

    as a self employed signwriter or 'car sticker maker' as my youngest calls me lol, i would say there is no need for any extra adhesive, if fitted correctly it should be good for at least 2 years if its the stuff i think it is, and if and when it goes, there is no lasting damage and can be returned to normal or redone for next to no expense, if you do apply extra adhesive, it may ruin the part being applied to

    As above! Especially if you stretch it or heat it so it shrinks round the object. No need for extra adhesive whatsoever

    Thanks guys

    The stuff i got was off amazon,its not 3m so am a bit worried it could unpeel espcially around the corners as i had to stretch and tuck it.I dont mind about spoiling the part as i have a spare one if it doesnt work out

    if you want the best thing you could do is seal the edges with clear lacquer and a small brush to stop any water penetrating as with pin striping if its a good quality vinyl the glue should be 5-7 year

    also cast vinyl has memory of being a flat sheet heating it up after applying wipes that memory and causes it to remember its current shape thus removing tension on the adhesive

    Thanks again guys.

    Ive got some clear lacquer so will put some around the edges.

    john norris is correct,the stuff ive got unsticks and straightens out when i heated it up.Im gonna give this stuff a try for the moment and in the meen time im gonna get some good quailty stuff and do the spare strip ive got and see how it goes.
