    I had a busy few days. Wrapped a 50' Charter bus on Sat-Sun using Arlon Cast vehicle vinyl. Installed in a large shop and the temp was no ideal but the vinyl worked great stuck to everything it was supposed to. Monday comes and I'm wrapping a 26' delivery truck using Controltac V2 in the exact same building. What a PITA.. the vinyl didn't want to stick at all I had to pretty much heat and re heat every pass I'd take with the squiggee.. I was really surprised how poorly the vinyl reacted to the cold. I've used it lots in the past and I know it's pretty obvious that vinyl does not like the cold but I was really suprised between the differences between the 2 vinyls..

    Anyway . Just throwing that out there..:rock-n-roll:
