Between work and the kids football we've not had a chance to get out with the camper yet. In the mean time I've been doing some small jobs. One thing I mentioned in previous posts was adding external graphics, and back in February I got some from Fatstripe-Signs on eBay.
So yesterday I dug them out and knowing this could go horribly wrong, read through the [very brief] instructions and gave it a try. Here's how it went...
The pics here are from the other side, having finished one side and the back.
|1. The graphics share the same sheet depending on colour, so I cut each out in turn and positioned them with bits of masking tape.||2. Once happy with the position, put a "hinge" piece in the centre. This is where it the backing is cut from.|
|3. Peel back to the hinge tape and cut off the backing paper.||4. Working from the hinge, use the supplied plastic card to apply the vinyl to the surface.|
|5. I just kept going over obstacles, then cut through the paper with a Stanley blade.||6. Once applied, peel off the top paper.|
|7. One done, so far so good.||8. The upper graphic I placed 15mm above.|
|9. Same again here. It definately helps to remove all the small bits of masking tape before actually applying it.||10. Two down.|
Actually it turned out OK for a first attempt. There was a few small bubbles, but a prick with the blade let out the air and the bubble squashes flat.
It looks more of a camper now, less of a wheeled freezer. Let's hope the weather holds, really looking forward to getting out 😎
