Hi, I wrapped mine in vinyl. its just a solid color peice. The guy that had the pics is using a printer and laminator. He can print on vinyl and then wrap it in that. The prints, yes you can do any design. You can probably PM him about how the prints stick to milk jug. I have never put a print on milk jug. However it sticks to vehicles almost the same as the plain vinyl.

Plus you could just about do any color/picture type scheme on it you could want huh.
Any design or scheme, but Lines are the hardest to lay.

It all starts with a good template with problem areas marked out. Making templates takes time and material to perfect.

The material is stretched around the curves of the canopy and if there is a line in the design it will destort and not look straight.
Line areas have to be layed first with no destortion, then the rest of the sticker can be layed. Lines are better positioned away from curves.
Then you have the other problem of lining up the vinyl on the other side of the canopy and lining the lines up together at the front.
The material can be peeled back up to re-line position if not rubbed down. once rubbed down, removal will stretch the vinyl, but some heat will scrink the vinyl back to its original shape.
Once finished fitting, the vinyl needs setting to a new memory with heat from a heat gun.

Here are two Vibe 50's I did with lines

that looks pretty nice as long as it holds up well enough with the fuel on the nitro birds.

Fuel has no effect on vinyl. I have wraped used canopys just cleaned the canopy and cut the vinyl off at the edge. You can always buy another skin they are easy to change. Just think a fire one week and dragon skin the next.
