Supplies

Instructions

1) Clean application surface thoroughly with application fluid.

NOTE: NEVER USE AMMONIA BASED CLEANERS (i.e. Windex). It will out gas for a couple of weeks and create bubbles under the decal. Which will result in accidental decal peeling.

2) Place decal on hood area to visual the exact final location of your decal. This will prevent any unwanted positioning of final decal position.

6) Squeegee out the fluid and bubbles starting from the center and ending at the edges. This will ensure that excess fluid will be removed. Repeat this a few times until you remove most of the application fluid between the decal and the surface.

7) Spray the top of the sticker's backing tape to neutralize the tape's glue. Then squeegee again.

Do not pull up on the backing paper. This may cause the decal to lift up.

8) Wait about 1/2 to 1 full hour depending on the outside temperature. If you do not want to wait you can use a hair dryer and go lightly over the decal. After the decal has dried gently remove application tape by pulling straight back, leaving the decal on the surface. If decal comes off with the application tape (Top Layer), re-apply decal with squeegee (Step 6), and wait about 1/2 hour before attempting to remove application tape again.

9) Spray application fluid on the installed decal and squeegee again while wet. This will remove any leftover bubbles. Let decal sit for 24 hours before washing and waxing, or driving in inclement weather (rain/snow/freezing temp). Your vehicle is still drive-able, the decals will not fly off.

Enjoy your new decal!
