No theres so many vinyl's out there. I ended up using a Matte white on mine because the gloss was so white it made my white look yellow. Maby you could have 3m or whatever product your buying send some samples. I just used whatever my buddy had laying around.
I know in my case vinyl only came in like 5 foot or whatever wide. Whatever it was it would NOT make it all the way across the front bumper. So i would need to get like 8 feet and have a ton of extra scrap. And it gets expensive! So i decided to just get like 2 feet length, and whatever width is came, and just do a small splice in front bumper overlapping maby 1/4" incase it shrank. Only i know its there nobody sees it.
Ill try and take some pics. Its dirty but at least you can get an idea. I want to redo it a little better now that i have some experience with the stuff.
I guess go easy on the heat gun not to stretch too much. Its not exactly like putting on vinyl dirtbike graphics. But its pretty bitchen stuff. The one i had was some "air release" version. If you get any bubbles they will seep out the microscopic holes and release! Pics on the way
