    I'm doing my buddy's race car (dirt mod) and he wants Fluorescent orange numbers. Cut vinyl nothing fancy. Throw some numbers on it and go racing. What vinyl should I look at? I've never dealt with fluorescent colors. Thanks.

    All of the Fluorescent I used years back had the outdoor durability of a dragonfly. Fade out almost as fast as it was applied :Big Laugh Dirt mod cars have about the same life expectancy of sheet metal so use the cheapest you can find. :rock-n-roll:

    Oracal will last the longest of all of them......but dont expect much more than a month or so of racing before it turns to creamsicle.......

    The reflective orange is pretty fluorescent. Any race driver that comes in normally settles for a printed "orange" when they leave because they don't want to pay for it though.

    Hey, CS Sign Supply has the FLUOR orange you are seeking. Since it is late model dirt, I'm not sure the expense of lam is warranted. Please let me know how I may help.

    Tim's correct... Since it is late model dirt, I'm not sure the expense of lam is warranted.

    Just cut and install. FLUOR orange rated 6 months. I add charge as regular vinyl for florescent vinyl and make them pay for the entire 24"x10 yard roll with a markup and keep it for recuts. It's dirt car racing....they get beat to hell every week.

    Oracal Economy Fluorescent Series is what I use for a job like that. I believe it is series 6510? Not positive though.
     
  12. I use Phase Two Sign Supply in NC for Specialty Films, they have great prices.

    Racers love the Florescent Colors. I know its 6 mo outdoor, but a racecar is only outside once a week.....and most short track racing is at night!
