Magnet alternative for aluminum bodies

I've been getting a lot of requests for magnets on Ford trucks. I searched past posts on the forum but checking to see if there are any new updates. I've tried the Firecling from Firesprint which works well but it can stretch when trying to remove it in the summer heat. I thought about adding a thick polycarb laminate to make it stiffer. I've used Glass Apeel on store windows but never tried it on a vehicle. Does anyone have any other materials that they have tried with good results?

Bigfish no longer deals in media... Gansdigital is getting out of the media business, everything is super cheap to buy right now though!

What?! Bigfish is out of it? Bummer! The microdot adhesive stuff he had might be a good magnet alternative. Can also get it from Halliday Digital Supply FWIW

Unless he's going out on his own...pretty sure he worked for gsns digital and they've been liquidating all their vinyls.

There are other idotmvendors. Neschen makes one and mactsc makes one as well

Glass Appeal works great. No adhesive and repositionable.

Too bad, Gans had good stuff, the only reason we didn't purchase thru them is that shippers almost always damaged the material.
