Question which vinyl foil for graphics

hi everyone

i am about to put all new graphics onto my 22 scarab.
about all graphics i read about here are cut from "marine grade vinyl".
anyone know what brand (3M most likely) and what type of foil to use?
maybe someone even has a 3M part number or something like that?!
all plotting services i have contacted so far here in austria only use PVC foil (which sucks, at least the material they showed me so far).

thanks

peter

Actually if you look on e-Bay you will see some for Scarab but you will have to custom design your own background. I'm gonna try it since it is cheap. I can always remove it later.

BTW how's the Syclone running? How is the old sy/ty organization?

roby

it will be custom graphics, so i want to use the best material; i dont want to start peeling after a couple of weeks in the sun.

syclone is under constant renovation (f&r propshafts, window motors, mufflers-will be atr soon- chromed wheels...)

whats your ride now?

I drive a Supra Turbo and a Dodge Intrepid. I have reached a point in my life to where I just hate GM cars & trucks. (especially trucks) They all look the same.

AAARRRRGH!!! NO KANGAROOS IN AUSTRIA!!! YOU ARE A LITTLE TOO SOUTH ON THE WORLD MAP!!
Austria lies in the heart of europe, the country that gave you mozart, schubert, wiener schnitzel and, of course, arnold schwarzenegger...

Isn't there a lake in Austria named ****asay. My wife's family is from there and we always got a kick out of that.

Syclone,
You cannot go wrong with a 3M product.

Avery also makes a good product. We use both in our business.
