Billboard vinyl. Here is why: 1. It's cheap or free. 2. It's VERY sturdy and easy to fabricate. 3. Almost always white it's reflective and has a very high UV protection rating (I'm guessing) I've covered my domes and shade structures with Tyvek, Poly tarps (both white and silver) canvas, parachute a...

I got it!.. Thanks for clearing that up for me! Which cement is it that you used? H-66 is what most tarp sites sell for vinyl adhesive, however I'm curious as to the difference between that one and regular PVC clear cement?

Ummm, okay??? Anyway, if someone on Eplaya has actually used an adhesive to glue two pieces of billboard vinyl together would you please inform me as to which cement you used to do the gluing? How well did it work to permanently bond the tarps?
Is that clear enough for you OED?

Best advesive for Vinyl tarps???

I'm looking to glue two large 20mm billboard tarps together. I've heard that regular PVC glue melts the vinyl together nicely, but I'd rather hear from someone who has actually done this before?

Everyplace in Reno is expensive. Premier closed their Reno office and their closest location is in Sacramento. I've decided to rent in Las Vegas and drive it up. The additional cost of the truck is absorbed in the money I've saved from a $800 rental bill in Reno to a $400 bill in Vegas.
