    Applying Vinyl without a squeegee?

    hey all,


    i might be applying a some vinyl to a car, but i dont have a squeegee, is there anything else i can use that would be just as good??


    the only thing is can think of is a credit card, any ideas?


    where would you be able to buy little squeegee's locally (what types of shops?)?



    cheers

    Hi mate,

    You can use a credit card, but wrap a bit of tissue or a thin rag around it to avoid scratching or ripping the material.

    When are you fitting the vinyl, i have a spare here which i would be happy to post to you.
