SURFACE PREPARATION

The vehicle should be washed with soap and water, but not waxed the night before installation. The vehicle should be allowed to dry in above 55°F (12.8°C) overnight to enable all moisture to evaporate from seams.

Indoor installation is advised to ensure that the surface is clean and climate conditions do not affect the install.

Remove any easily removable hardware such as emblems, mirrors, rear windshield wipers, etc. Prepare surfaces by cleaning first with glass cleaner to remove all dirt. Next saturate paper towel with 70% denatured alcohol and wipe down all areas where graphics will be installed. The surface should be then wiped down with a dry paper towel to remove the wax and grease that is dissolved by the denatured alcohol.

Concentrate on areas around door edges, handles and other potential problem areas for adhesion of the graphics. Surfaces should be clean and dry for installation.

GRAPHICS PLACEMENT

Vinyl graphics should be installed at a temperature over 55°F 12.8°C).

Graphics should be lined up on the vehicle and checked accurately for proper placement according to reference pictures and layouts. If there is Window Perf Film to be installed it should be taped to the graphics and checked to ensure proper placement. After placement has been achieved, remove the Window Perf Film for later installation. Make sure when overlapping graphics that the back panels are installed first. Likewise, make sure that bottom panels are installed first. This will keep weather conditions from adversely affecting the overlap.
