    unfortunatley, my production team tells me you're SOL my brother. Did you get keyed or brush it too hard? where is the vinyl and can you get a new one?

    i think you're supposed to use water on the squeegie? I dunno man, that's a damn shame...i hate when I put a lot of time/effort/money into something and it comes out shitty.
