Neither. No additional primer. I took Fiberglass parts down to smooth surface finish, because vinyl will not hide imperfections or divots. However, it covers pinholes beautifully so I didn't worry about filling them.

Scott first has his crew clean and dry the entire aircraft exterior VERY thoroughly. There may be absolutely zero surface oils to prevent vinyl adhesion.

As for how Scott's crew applied the vinyl, I'll have to let him answer that (if it's not a company secret). I wasn't there. I do know that he doesn't use open flame unlike some of the automotive wrappers I've seen wrapping an RV on video. (Cringe!)

Default hot side

Hello Scroll
nice job, I love your "paint" scheme , there seem no difference between paint and vinyl; but I wonder how the vinyl behaves on the belly skin near the exhaust pipes, did you found some issue?

my best

Thanks, Lucio.
I'm having no problems near the exhaust pipes. AircraftWraps applied 3M products...the good stuff, and I haven't seen any pull-back or signs of heat stress near the exhaust pipes, either on the cowling or fuselage skin.

Hey, Vic,
I'm really grateful for your help that morning. It was a beautiful flight out that morning, and an outstanding fly-in all around. Thanks again for the pick-up and the push-out.
