    I've had people ask about clear coating the di-noc, and will try it with Enamel automotive clear

    just a question, if you are to remove it can you just heat gun it and pull it off or will it leave a sticky residue?

    thanks!

    @cool_dude, as long as you don't use the 3M Substrate Primer, Soapy water on a cloth has worked for me.

    @wejjy, I will download it when I return to the shop :thumb:

    looks pretty!
    is it stretchy? or easily pliable?

    Yes, just heat the di-noc with a Heat Gun, for curved and rounded surfaces. I demonstrate what happens when you apply heat in this video.

    seems like it has a nice elasticity to it!

    The 3M stuff is excellent, I did the fuel filler cap on my car last year, very easy to use but you need to apply heat then doing non-flat surfaces!

    This is a really nice tutorial! Well done, I will make sure to try it out on some old mice I have laying around the place.
