    Does anyone have any great ideas for covering door decals on aluminum doors to appease an HOA?

    You can buy some decently powerful magnets on Amazon / eBay. We took apart a truck door.. Glued them on the inside... And then a magnet stuck to it. It's a pain in the ***. And we've only had to do it once for.a customer in the same position as yours.... But in a pinch it works.

    I believe we used something similar to this one -
    https://www.amazon.com/Powerful-Neo...rds=strong+magnet+large&qid=1590018192&sr=8-7

    We just used a thin tissue tape and ran got glue around the edges. One in every corner of your graphic as well as a few down the center and a magnet should hold up.

    You take a photo of the HOA board members car with any company decal on the back window and send it in as a complaint of a commercial vehicle. F those guys, we got them here too.

    Neat. Makes me wonder if it's the same product from 15 years ago. Way back then a Roland dealer showed me some samples and said zero issues at highway speed and stays on in the car wash. Can't remember the name but the company went out of business shortly thereafter. Was way better than magnetics and left no glue tracks.
    Will have to see about getting a sample.

  10. "Works with Roland, Mutoh, Mimaki, Epson Canon, hp Printers."
    I like how they didn't bother to capitalize the Fisher Price printer company's name.

    Wow. That was big. But I'm curious about the Unistick stuff too.
