- If possible, have a professional install your graphics kit, However we have done our best to make them as easy as possible for anyone to install.
- Install your new graphics kit in a 60⁰‐100 ⁰ environment.
- Take your time and plan on spending a few hours installing your graphics.
- Application and installation tools are not required but are recommended. Tools include:
- Spray bottle filled with a mixture of water with a few drops of dishwashing liquid.
- Heat Gun
- Isopropyl Alcohol (Rubbing Alcohol)
- Thoroughly clean all parts of the vehicle. Remove any factory installed graphics. If you have new plastics we, recommend isopropyl alcohol.
- Removing factory installed graphics may require some heat from a blow dryer and the cleaners mentioned above. Be careful as they are flammable.
- Identify all parts of the kit to be installed. Hold them up to the part they go on so you understand where and how they need to be placed. If you have parts that run into each other look for the art to line up. There is normally a gap in the art to get it to line up correctly. (Some parts are not intended to line up).
- When to use soapy water and when not. As for the soapy water you only need about 6 drops of soap for the spray bottle the rest is water. Soapy water is recommended for large flat parts larger than 1.5 feet. Spray down the area and float the graphics on the surface area. Once satisfied with placement, use a squeegee to remove excess liquid and air bubbles.
- Before peeling off the backing, hold the part you are installing up to the vehicle. Figure out the best line up point. Remember that all designs start with the bigger parts and move into smaller parts. Smaller parts are easier to maneuver around to make the design line up if needed. If you feel you need a tester part then do use one of the stand alone small parts to get a feel.
- After finding your start point, peel back just a small part and fold the paper backing. Place just the small part and line up the rest to make sure you have the part lined up correctly. After it is lined up peel back more paper and you can use your thumb or a small squeegee to flatten out the kit to the vehicle. If you have a high point on the part you are installing, start on the high point and work your way out and down toward the rest of the kit.
- With our graphics when you add heat from a blow dryer the kit can stretch up to one inch in any direction so be careful using heat while pulling or holding the graphics. If you end up with some small wrinkles at the very last edge a little heat and tap it down with your finger will take them out.
- Some parts, such as number plates have a high center and this is sometimes help full to start in the center. When you go to peel the backing just tear off the backing in the center and then fold the edges over. Next stick the center down onto of the center of the plate length wise, lining up the ends with any holes you have. Work your way out from the center to the upper and lower edges.
- After the kit installed as a final step, it is recommended to heat the entire kit and give it a good rub across the entire kit including the edges. This final heat and rub will really ‘set’ the adhesive and will help the kit to hold its placement and lock in the shape. Use a heat gun and apply heat evenly over the entire kit just to heat it up a little. Then really rub and set the kit.
- After installation, let the graphics kit sit for 24 hours before going out into the weather and riding the unit.
