Attention:

Failure to follow instructions may result in loss of this product. Classic Design Concepts is not responsible for improperly installed Chin Spoiler. Tape surfaces must have a temperature of 70Ί F or above to properly adhere. If necessary, warm the vehicle and Chin Spoiler areas with a heat gun or hair dryer.

Apply 3m Acrylic Bonding Tape:

  1. Sand area to be taped on the part with 80 – 120 grit sand paper.
  2. Clean these areas with supplied alcohol swabs. Allow time to dry.
  3. Caution: Proper ventilation should be used when handling all solvents. Inhalation and direct contact with skin or eyes should be avoided.

  4. Apply supplied Adhesion Promoter to these areas. Allow time to dry.
  5. Note: Adhesion Promoter may discolor paint, apply only where needed. The drying time is generally 30 – 45 seconds but may depend on conditions. Tape should be applied within 1 hour of applying Promoter, in a dust free environment.

  6. Apply 3M Acrylic Bonding Tape. Cut tape with a razor blade where a continuous piece is not possible.
  7. Note: Temperature of the part must be 70 - 110° F at the time of application.

  8. Apply even pressure along Tape to set. As a general rule, a minimum of 15 PSI should be used.
  9. Note: Immediately after the tape is applied about 60% of the bond strength is achieved. After 24 hours approximately 75% - 80% is achieved and after 72 hours 95% + bond strength is achieved.

Apply 1/2” 3m Acrylic Bonding Tape up to feature line on bottom side of Chin Spoiler (approximately 42”)

Preparing the vehicle for Chin Spoiler Installation:

  1. Raise front of vehicle using ramp, hoist, jacks, etc. and properly support. To help ease installation, remove front wheels.
  2. Remove the 2 lower screws from wheel opening that secure the wheel well liner to the front fascia (Figure 1). Remove the splash shield, secured to vehicle by six 5.5mm head screws, four in the fascia and two in the radiator support. (Figure 2)

  3. Install the Chin Spoiler to the fascia starting in the fascia opening. Stretch each end of Chin Spoiler into wheel opening. Secure ends of Chin Spoiler into wheel openings with the factory screws previously removed. Install the seven Ό”-20 Button Head Screws through the Chin Spoiler and the fascia and secure with a washer and nut.
  4. Note: Install the fender Washers on the topside of the Fascia. The corresponding area above the center hole in the Chin Spoiler will be removed during the removal of fascia material; the Fender Washer will span the gap to secure the Chin Spoiler to the fascia.
