The Hubby Meets Vinyl!!

My husband decided he wanted something a little different for his snowmobile. He found a file online that he really liked and asked if I could cut it in vinyl. Well I traced it in SCAL, tweaked it a bit, cut it, weeded it and this is what we ended up with.

Then we applied it to the inside of his windshield.
He taped it up and will spraypaint a layer or two of blue on the inside of the windshield and finish up with a layer of silver to give it a nice clean look.
I will post a picture of the final product when he is done. I figure it will take a few days to get the paint on and let it dry throughly.

We practiced on a clear acrylic circle blank with the Yamaha logo. I guess you could say we made a Yamaha Christmas decoration!! We flipped the design and put it on the back of the clear circle. The hubby painted two layers of blue and finished it off with a layer of silver. Looks pretty good, huh??
Here is what the back looks like.
Check back in a few days to see the finished windshield!!
Thanks for looking!!
