Can you use a hair dryer substitute for the heat gun?

Honestly I thought about doing one, but I looked on Youtube and there are about 213723587502950951095 tutorials on applying vinyl to complex shapes using a heat gun. I posted one on this thread a few hours ago.

Yes, hair drier works, thats how I did mine, it doesn't take very much heat to get this stuff to form, I can probably do it outside, (its 110 outside in Arizona) and it will stay soft all the time but it wouldn't be very comfortable.

Looks great! So, how much material does it take to do a each hood? I'm seriously wanting to do this to the hood of my 70-200 f/2.8 IS. :)

Take an 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of paper and try to cover your hood, measure from there how much you need. Thats how I did it. I cant tell you exactly how much because I wanted extra so I bout a 1 foot by 4 foot sheet.

First day on the job with the carbon sticker hoods. They both work as expected, but the vinyl is pulling out of the step on the 70-200 hood. So much for sharp concave shapes. I don't think I will be trying to wrap my 17-40 hood.

Funny thing is, I have a B swapped civic with no stickers, spoiler, carbon anything, but I find the carbon lens hood irresistable.

Car.....No Carbon. Quite possibly the only Civic with speed mods and no apperance mods.

Nice ride! Talk about a sleeper...
