don't think so.....only way to re-use the vinyl would have to be in a case where u were applying the vinyl and u f'ed up and u still had some water between the surface and the vinyl
if u try to peel off the vinyl when its dry, it will stretch and wrinkle

edit: ur best bet might be to get a very fine tipped needle and poke a hole through it then get the bubble out

Put it in the sun the bubbles should come out, or use a hairdryer on it

If you really need to, you may be able to get it off by peeling carefully while wetting it down quite a bit as you go with the same soapy water mix. It depends on how long it's been on there. If it gives you trouble or is hard to get off, don't keep yanking or it may stretch as mentioned before.

Dont mean to bust your bubble but mines havent left in 2 weeks and its seen plenty of sun. I thought i was the only one but it is irritating. I guess my last bet is to put it under the knife. One you poke a hole should u then use a hair dryer and straighten out???
