Supplies

Instructions

Step One - Preparing the Vehicle:

Ensure that the outside temperature is above +40º F (+5ºC).

Step Two - Clean the Surface

Clean the outside glass surface with soap and water. Make sure that the glass surface is dry and residue free before applying your BackScape.

Step Three - Placement/Installation

* DO NOT USE A HEAT GUN OR WATER TO APPLY *
Use masking tape strips to pre-position the image on the vehicle before removing the backing material. Carefully peel off adhesive backing from behind the image and apply from one edge and work to the opposite side, smoothing the image to prevent wrinkles. To remove any wrinkles, gently lift up the image to where the wrinkle is, smooth out the wrinkle with your hand, and continue applying.

Step Four - Finishing Touches & Care

To help adhesion, lay the disposable backing over the image and rub firmly from the center to the sides of the image. If mounting a full window image you will have extra material to trim outside of the edge of your rear window glass. Trim the excess material with a razor blade or similar tool to complete the installation. The pressure sensitive adhesive bonds to the glass very well when first applied but sets more firmly after a twenty-four (24) hour period. Avoid power car washes for the first week after application. For longer life avoid using snow scrapers on this image. Treat this image as you would the painted surface of your car. Do not use abrasive cleaners on the image. Rear window mounted wiper blades will cause premature wear of the image.

+ Removal Techniques

The perforated film can be removed by using a thin scraper device. It is best to start in one corner and lift up a small section. After this is done, you can normally use hand force to pull the image from the glass. As with any decal or sticker, the warmer the outside temperature, the easier the removal will be. If any adhesive residue remains on the glass surface it can be cleaned with any quality commercial glass cleaning liquid or citrus-based adhesive remover / cleaner.
