3M DINOC on topsheets - anyone tried it?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello all,

 

Searched the threads beginning with "topsheet graphics / painting" and whatnot but wasn't able to come across anyone who's tried a vinyl cover. Has anyone tried 3m DiNoc? It's supposed to be pretty versatile and extremely flexible. Looking to do a carbon fiber topsheet cover on my '08 Metron M:10's. Anyone tried this / know how well DiNoc holds up in cold weather?

 

Sprayed with a few clearcoats of Valspar crystal clear, it cant be that bad.

 

 

Any thoughts / ideas / constructive criticisms appreciated.

These questions seem to always bring on the "who cares about the tops, we only care about the bottoms" comments.

I've seen the older 3m topsheet protect tape make white graphics appear yellow after a period of time.  That was a long time ago though.  I don't know anyone personally that has used anything like that in over 20 years.  The newer stuff is probably better, couldn't be much worse

The '08 Metron M:10 is a nice ski but a bit ... "wooden"* and unresponsive compared to today's stuff.

 

 

 

*metaphorical meanings of wooden, not literal

** you DID ask

Comprex, I do not understand the relevance of the M10 being wooden and unresponsive as relates to topsheets? Am I missing something? I didn't know a 2008 ski was dated / unresponsive?

 

Please, enlighten me

Just giving you a hard time for dressing up Metrons.    If you're proud of your Metrons, represent.

Does not tear or cut through or peel up like vinyl does.
