Until all the paint comes off when you peal the sticker off

A mid-60's Vauxhall Viva GT is the earliest that springs to mind. The old man had a regular Viva but wouldn't let me paint the bonnet

As it happens a family friend phoned me up the other day to ask if I could run him to (wrap ) a skip truck cab as his car had just broken down not far from where I live .

(Oh did all that stuff years ago i said ) well i once replaced a leather effect vinyl roof the Ford Capri I owned in the late 1970 s : ) what a ball ache that was plus it cost a small fortune in Evostick .

Mind he did have the modern advantage self adhesive vinyl & a heat gun
was thinking of asking him if he could Wrap me outboard in chrome effect .
