    I have a 4foot by 8foot inside sign to do, i am using 3mm gloss black e-panel as a substrate. customer wants sign lettering done in Chrome (yuk) but anyway, this customers logo is 88 inches by 21 inches and has to be done in one piece. I have never done one that large before, not that that really bothers me, but I am wondering if I should apply this dry, with putting a piece of tape in the middle and laying down one side at a time, or should I do this wet, using an application fluid. the rest of the sign can be done in pieces.
    any thoughts?

    No wet app with chrome. Hinge it and take your time. Could use a Big Squeegee too.
