The Mercedes Benz Driving Academy not only makes driving fun in their luxury sedans, but also stylish in these newly updated C-Class cars that are finished with custom racing stripe decals.
Don’t let their sleek, minimalist look fool you. These custom racing stripes are actually one of the more difficult types of decals jobs for vehicle graphics installers. First, our design team must take accurate and detailed measurements of the surface of the car, allowing for curves. These measurements are then used to build a custom template from which we will cut the vinyl graphics to fit precisely where they are applied.
The application and installation process requires patience and a good eye for our expert installation team as they carefully line up the 60″ or so of adhesive-backed vinyl stripes and then go through the process of adhering every inch of the material. The pressure-sensitive adhesive-backed vinyl comes with the adhesive encapsulated in tiny, microscopic capsules of glue covering the back of the material. These glue capsules must each be popped during the installation process so that they glue can be released and allowed to adhere to the surface of the car. If this step is not done properly, premature lifting or bubbling of the material may occur.
