Anyone tried spraying lacquer clearcoat over vinyl pin stripe? I know it is done all the time on cars, motorcycles, bike, etc. but just wondering if anyone has done it on a radio cabinet?

I don't know if lacquer, and, vynal will work together. Maybe more like polyurethane???
Some chemicals fight each-other tooth, and, nail...
Be very careful there....
You're doing a great job on your work...

I have ordered a small roll of vinyl pin stripe to test. I put some on a scrap piece of wood and test it. Chemicaly I don't see any issue. I have a greater concern about the effect over a period of time, maybe shrinking or cracking.
I painting pinstripes on the Philco 37-89 I'm working on now. Man is that a pain. Not perfect but it is my first attempt. I'll post some picture when I finish........soon.
Thanks for the encouragement.

Ben, if your test does not work out, I would suggest a spray of shellac over the tape. This is a very nice clear spray and will isolated reactive finishes. The lacquer should not then react with the vinyl tape.

I has able to tape off and spray pin stripping but lots of work.If I have to do another one I will use the pin stripe tape. I tried it on a wood sample and sprayed it with lacquer and it is still hanging in my shop with no issues. Thanks for the reply and suggestion.

Looks nice. I haven't tried any yet but bought some pin-striping from a hobby shop that supposedly is impervious to solvents. The dark striping looks a lot like some blond-ebony strips I have in my shop.
