[DML] Re: Vinyl on SS

Josh - I have applied self-adhesive vinyl in many ways and left it on 
for up to 7 months with no ill effects.  The flag was the longest 
running decoration.  The main issue is that you "super clean" the 
stainless when you peel the vinyl off, leaving a spot that is 
considerably cleaner and brighter colored than areas that were not 
covered with the vinyl.  The color eventually returns to normal as the 
oxide layer reforms and develops to its normal thickness.  Another 
owner (who shall remain anonymous) applied cammo cloth to his DeLorean 
using spray starch.  This was done in the very early '90's.  DO NOT do 
this with starch.  The vinyl is fine, but cloth glued on with starch 
will pit the stainless in a significant way.  The stainless must be 
clean and dry for the vinyl to stick well, and having it warm is also a 
plus, so that you can stretch the vinyl over the contours of the body.
