    Hi Martyn

    Personally I would definitely use relief cuts and fillets on the second trailer. Even with a really good wrap vinyl that one’s a challenge!

    However, I would be more concerned about the low energy plastic issue. It looks like the first trailer may be fiberglass, in which case you should be fine. The second one looks like it may be made of polyethelene, if that’s the case you MUST use a vinyl specifically designed for the purpose. I’m not a user of Mactac products but you might want to check with your supplier whether the 9800 is suitable, save you a lot of heartache. We tend to use Avery 2126HT for this kind of plastic. I haven’t used it on such a scale as your job but it’s great for wheelie bins, small diggers, hard hats – that kind of thing. Good luck.
