    Customer wants his logo put on the doors of his Humvee. only problem is the doors are covered in some kind of "canvas" which seems to have been painted black but the "fabric" texture is still quite prominent so I don't think vinyl is going to work. What kind of paint would you suggest for something like this? Thanks!

    If that material is nylon, there is a vinyl special for it, I just don't remember the name

    I have done tire covers in the past for jeeps. Probably same material. We cut stencil, used a heat gun to set it and air brushed the logos on them. I've also hand painted them with one shot. I never tried vinyl before but I would try the high tack materials made for low energy plastics.

    Paint mask stencils and paint the logos on if he wants them to hold up over time. You could use a vinyl like Arlon DPF8000 and it might hold up but also might come off at a car wash.

    Just discovered it has Rhino Liner sprayed over the whole vehicle, including the fabric.. Does Oneshot stick well to that?
