  • VVIVID XPO vinyl wrap?

    I'm planning to trying this vinyl wrap on a new pair of bookshelf speakers and am wondering if anyone here has used it before? Any tips or tricks for installing it on speaker cabinets? Here's a link the the product at PartsExpress: https://www.parts-express.com/search...relevance:desc

    Thank you,

    Randy

    I use it a lot, for instance:



    However, you can't put it over bare wood or MDF, it must be applied over a smooth varnished or oiled surface or it will lift. You also have to warm it with a hairdrier as you apply it, especially on corners.

      Wow! That looks sharp!

      I've primed the MDF with Kilz and am planning a couple coats of gloss paint to provide a good application surface.

        I used some black carbon fiber on a subwoofer (it was for my son so I don't have pictures). My advice...treat it like painting...it will be as good as the surface you start from, i.e., it will show any flaws. I wish I would have done a small practice piece as I had some flaws, but they were 100% user-error, not because of the product itself.
