Hi Paul, thanks for your concern. Yes the glue was still liquid when I put the design down and I did brush it with my brass brush. I let it dry overnight before putting on the clear packing tape. It might be the tape that is lifting off the paper as I cut. It has only been a problem on the small details, but a real PITA since I have been forced to cut without the pattern a couple of times. I don’t think the larger pieces will be any trouble though. I do plan to pick up some aluminum plates soon. I’m very happy with the chevy. It’s working very well and if I hadn’t had the pattern problem my cutting would be a lot better.
