    I got a roll of a glossy mactac vinyl that is made for printing, since i dont do printing but yet i am stuck with the roll, i figured i'd use it as my white vinyl for my race cars, will this work? you cant really tell the differance between the two next to each other..any down sides,ect? thanks

    Anything is fine for race cars. Most don't make it a whole race without a scrape or 20. (Except the fast guys, and they get a new car each year mostly)

    if you take 3M lammed and contour cut it its a pain in the *** to weed. BUT, if you let it sit for a few hours, the cut peices will litteraly pull away from the excess and it practially weeds itself.
