Finding it hellish...anything over 28° and I'm melting. Office faces west and gets sun majority of day...no through breeze as windows and doors on same side...fan just turbo charges the warm air!
Vinyl application hard inside or outside as ambient temp high...dark vans are killer as the vinyl is actually blistering with micro bubbles due to the minute amount of air trapped under it as it expands just sitting in the car park as the panels get up to 70+°c. Never known anything like it since I started.

Prints drying fine...

Having to drink 2-3 litres a day just to stay alive!

Did this wrap last week and it was a bit of a nightmare!! The vinyl just grabbed as soon as applied. Our unit has a roof light so becomes a greenhouse in this heat, great for tomatoes!! I wouldn't mind this weather till Christmas though :cool:

So should I turn my aircon off so I know what you are all going on about :lol1: This isn't heat (says he who comes from the humid coast of South Africa :wink: )

We have a wrao to do end of next week so hopefully a little cooler buy then, I'm trying to stay out the workshop as much as possible although hope it lasts as I'm going to Cornwall for 5 days at the end of the week :)

Oh yes it's awesome, got 2 of them now, one in each room since the expansion. They are costly to buy but not bad running costs and heats and cools really well.
