New to the area, so does anyone know of a shop that does quality vinyl work for Miatas in the Atlanta, GA area? Stripes, chevrons, etc...

Just a heads up - The vinyl does'nt hold up. I have redone the graphics on my car three times in less than four years. It is a pain to remove. The engine heat + fluids from the other cars stain the vinyl on the hood + roof. The sun takes care of the rest. I just stripped everything off to repaint the car. This time the stripes get painted on. The vinyl is easy to install but only looks good about a year. My 2 cents.

They are not using the right vinyl.....A good vinyl should last alot longer than a year and could be removed easily when heated up. I just removed a few graphics that have been on my car for a few years with a heat gun, with no problems....ready for the new logos.

Mine's been on for five years, and looks near-new. There are lots of vinyl products on the market. I just lucked out, I guess, but I'd suggest shopping for better vinyl rather than going to paint.

I have lots of vinyl on my car and it has lasted for years without any trouble. I just changed the vinyl on my hood after 3 years and it peeled right off. It could be the vinyl supplier, or the fact that I put vinyl on over a fresh coat of wax, or the fact that my race car spends most of its time out of the sun, but my luck has been entirely different.

Premium Cast vinyl is the key.
