Lettering on the Cheap

Today we're out in the Florida sunshine here and we're going to be installing a decal on this door. What we have here is somebody came by and stuck a business card to this door and let it set here for an extended period of time. So before we start installing anything on this door we're going to clean that off. Before I do that I want to talk about what we're looking at here. This door is kind of chalky, a little oxidized. It's a little borderline. I believe the vinyl will stick just fine but you may want to repaint before installing vinyl on a surface like this. Decals like a very smooth glossy surface. We're just going to clean this surface really good before we install our decal. Before we start our install we're going to clean this adhesive off then we'll wipe the entire door down with alcohol. Then we'll lay it out and measure everything then we'll apply the decals. So what I'm doing here is I'm just taking some adhesive remover and I'm spraying the area here. I'm going to let that sit for just a while. This is pretty difficult because the decal has just over time disappeared. And what you're left with here is adhesive that's just been baked to the door. We'll let it sit for just sixty seconds or so. And it's going to leave a mark there's nothing you can do about that. Again the best thing to do would be to repaint the door and have a nice fresh start. So we've let this sit for just a little bit. It's still coming off just a bit hard but again, the more you work the remover in there the more of the adhesive will actually come off.
