    Default 348 Vent Decals

    I'm in process of de stickying my vents and am having trouble getting anyone to
    make the circular decals in vinyl. I know some of you have had them made and wonder
    if you could put me in touch with a supplier.
    I would be happy to get extras made and pass them on if anyone else needed them.
    I have tried local suppliers but they are not interested unless I want hundreds.

    Also I'm not sure who recommended it ( may have been Nick) but Chemical Guys Orange Degreaser
    is excellant for getting the sticky goo off.

    Mine were made on a vinyl cutter which belongs to a friend. Unfortunately it no longer functions correctly or I would have made a batch by now as others have shown interest previously. Something wrong with the cutting head apparently. It cuts larger pieces ok but not small circles down to 4.5 mm which I found to be best on the eye. Any larger looks to big to me. I may have a few spare somewhere but don't hold your breath. I will have a dig around later and let you know. N.

    This is what 4.5 mm looks like.

    Ive only six solid circles I'm afraid. Plus enough for the adjuster quadrants. You are welcome to those if you want them. PM me your address if so and I will pop them in the post. N.

    We cut the open vent decal like an O. 4.5mm outer with 3.5mm disc cut out of the middle. 1mm disc wall approx. I don't think you can get anything less than 5mm otherwise. Very fiddly to deal with and I wasted a few hence me not having any spare I guess. I was happy with the result. Im a bit OCD when it comes to details like that. Ill send you the others and you can use them if it suites. I don't need them. N.

    Are you going to re-coat them, and if so in what?

    Cheers

    Hi Adrian
    Yes they need to be re finished as the bare finish is a bit patchy. I will use Halfords black plastic bumper paint ( as used in Jeffs DIY resto ) . I tried it some time ago on the ashtray and it gives a good hard wearing
    finish, but not soft touch.
