DRY INSTALL BASICS: Getting the vinyl installed on your vehicle is only requires minimal tools. For Best results we recommend cleaning the surface that you'll be applying our overlays too, cleaning should consist of removal of any waxes, dirt and or debris. For the cleaning process a clay bar is highly recommended: CLEANING PREP SPRAY & CLAY BAR's SOLD HERE). Before you begin installation of any vinyl overlays please make sure you are working in the right conditions, you should never install vinyl in direct sunlight, never apply vinyl in temperatures that are neither too hot nor too cold. Our in-house expert installers say the optimum temperature for installing vinyl is between 65 and 72 degrees (F). Vinyl can be installed in temperatures as low as 65 degrees (F), and up to 90 degrees (F). Vinyl has a more difficult time conforming and staying in place in colder temperatures though, which is why we recommend waiting until temperatures warm up or install in a temperature controlled environment.
FULL INSTALL: After the surface is clean and you have read and completed "DRY INSTALL BASICS" Start by peeling the vinyl from the backing paper while making sure not to stretch the cut-out area for the side fin. Hold the overlay by the edges nearest to the cut-out while letting your top and bottom section fall freely. With your fingers, lay the edge of the vinyl around the fin only. Make sure everything in that area is laid before continuing. This area is your hinge point and will dictate how the rest of the overlay falls into place.
Keep the top of the overlay off of the light as you gradually lay it in place starting from your hinge, then moving to the inner corner of the tail light nearest to the trunk. Continue squeegeeing it down, making sure there is no air left under the vinyl. When you get to the top edge of the tail light that goes vertical make sure to use the squeegee to feed the material into the inner edge so you do not get bubbles in that area. Then move to the remaining bottom side and lay the material down as you apply pressure with a squeegee in the same way you did the top side.
Make sure all the edges have been firmly squeegeed out and before carefully peeling away the transfer tape, do one more pass with the squeegee to insure the custom cut out is fully locked in place, then you can proceed to peel the transfer tape very slowly to reveal the custom cut-out design. Trim any excess you might have along the outer edge of the tail light. Then post heat the vinyl and the install is complete.
