    Local fire truck redo on striping. Having to restripe a door on an older model, local firetruck that was recently damaged and a new door installed. The truck has light blue reflective on all the striping and I've created the new striping to match what was on the damaged door. The striping is shaped like a "Z." My question is this: The old reflective has a black paint bleed in the top and bottom of the striping making it appear to be folded. Just curious if you can paint on the reflective and if so, what type of paint to use? Any other helpful hints would be appreciated,

    Why can't you just print that onto the striping?

    Grip flex sign paint, akzo coatings,
    its used for back spraying plastic sign faces
    from what I remember the thinner/ reducer is a vinyl product so its hot enough & chemically bonds to the vinyl. The product data sheet lists it for use on flexible vinyl.
    I used to do it a lot years ago, its perfect & will last as long as the vinyl.

    Thank you all for your input. Realized I had some Grip Flex black and that did the job!
