    No stencils are not reusable. They are cut usually from a thin stencil vinyl and are intended to be a one time application. It's impossible to remove them without stretching or tearing them at some point and even more unlikely you'd ever successfully put them back on the backing paper you would need to reinstall them.

    removing a few bits of a stencil to put in the bottom of a cab is a far cry from a whole cab The amount of time you spend futzing with trying to reuse something like that is just not worth it even if you consider your time worth minimum wage.

    I wish a truly reusable stencil was cost effective, but it's far from it really. By the time you pay to cnc metal or wood as opposed to plotter cutting vinyl you're at a cost greater than 2 sets of stencils to begin with, so unless you're one of that less than 2% of people that do more than one restoration of a particular cab the value just isn't there in a reusable version. However, i'm sure if you really do need to do 3 or more of a single cab it's worth it to ask one of the stencil makers to get a set laser cut from metal for you.
