Yes you can layer vinyl...just be sure you use calendared vinyl on calendared vinyl and cast vinyl on cast vinyl.I just recently got my Kia Forte......but became instantly annoyed with how many people had one. So, i decided to make mine stand out. At first, i wanted to paint it....but long story short, found out that vinyl is a better non permanent and far cheaper alternative.
I have a Sillhouette Quickutz machine at home. I dont want a full wrap.....but i DO want to put some character art and whatever else my mind comes up with on it. It would probably be about 1" 1/2 big.
My questions are:
Can i layer vinyl on top of each other? Will it warp in different weather conditions?
Thing is, my cutter is only 8 1/2 wide. This limits the size i wanted to make it. However, can i get past the length issue by simply cutting out some parts and putting them on top of each other? I know about registration marks and ill try to form fit those if at all possible....but i need to know if its A-ok to layer a little if at all.
Orical 651 or lower?
Been lurking here for a while and saw some suggest Orical 651 as a more permanent, durable solution. But i cross referenced with other irl people and some are telling me that it will take my paint off. I know that removing it requires a heat gun bit what im not sure is if it will mess it up EVEN WITH the use of a heat gun. (My car is white btw so no fading in time for me). Thing is, i dont know how arduous this process will take. If its easy-ish...i may change it every so often. If it takes some hours and effort, i may want to have it on there for a WHILE.
So i dont know whether to go for 651 or something less permanent since i know that the less permanent one has a lower life than the 651.
651 will be fine for what your doing, 751 would be preferred though. Whoever told you that it will take off paint does not know what they are taking about. If your paint job is from the factory you have nothing to worry about. We put 651 (more often 751, but they have the same adhesive) on expensive cars/suvs and never once has there been an issue with the paint coming off.
(dont use 631, it doesn't use a permanent adhesive)
