Where does everyone get their vinyl? I want to pick up a roll of like 30'×6". I know I can find it on ebay, buuut I also dont know what mil is good, and if there is a difference in adhesives, or durability for outside use.

I may even want more since I will probably mess up the on project a few times. Well my mess up, would be acceptable for others, but I want tk do things so they look nice, not nice until you get close.

I'm not meaning vinyl fabric you would use on seats, rear deck, door inserts or headliners. I mean like graphics. Similar to racing strips, windshield banners, and the stuff people use to cover the dots when tinting the back window on a coupe. Large decals people put on the side of there cars like large tribals down the side. I just want a solid strip of that.

Yep, your local fabric/craft store should have some. I don't know if it will be 6" wide, but people use it for all sorts of crafts.

Oh. I thought they would only have fabrics for clothes maybe the heavier fake leather vinyl.

They've usually got quite a bit of stuff for all sorts of crafts. I've picked up bamboo from joanns for different projects, and my fiance gets all sorts of baking stuff there.

oh your looking for a vinyl decal? Talk to a graphics shop/ sticker shop
I would agree, just remember, taking off that huge vinyl sticker after a few years will cause your paint job on your car to look horrible :(

Horrible how? Not matched because of fade, or what?

Not embarrassing, but ever see a car with the car bra on it...if you know someone who has that and ask them to pull a piece of it away and see the 2 different color variations on the original paint. Its quite noticeable just as how a vinyl sticker does.
