What temperature should i heat the surface when I am post heating?
Just wondering as a matter of interest, what sort of temperature does anyone have their hot air gun set to when post heating?
I can’t say I’ve ever heard anyone mention that, only the desired surface temp!
Obviously the hotter it is the quicker the surface will reach the desired temp, but presumably too hot could damage the vinyl or paintwork also if not careful? Too cold & you’ll be there forever!
I haven’t done do much wrapping, just the occasional van back, car roof & trim strips etc. & have never managed yet to do a course so have really just picked up what I know from Youtube vids & personal practice.
I recently had a job to wrap the silver trim strips shown in pic below on the front & back of a new black Range Rover in black vinyl & it took me about 8 hours!!! Hardly ideal conditions!! All done outside on a gravel drive with wind blowing & occasional showers!! I hadn’t realised until it arrived how far underneath the bottom ones go!! So I spent a good amount of time lying on the floor upside-down with a head torch on! I really must build myself a shed!!🤣
I wish I had taken some pics of the finished job but I was just glad it was done to be honest although it was probably my best effort yet & far from simple.
