Installation

Notice: Pre fi t before painting! Install new, unpainted parts according to these instructions! Then remove parts, paint them and re-install!

Painted or Altered Parts are Non-Refundable! After the parts have been primed and painted install the double sided tape! The surface where the 3M double sided tape is contacting must be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and be a minimum of 75 degrees F constant throught the drying process! Allow the 2-sided tape to dry 24 hours before driving!

Step 1: Remove the factory trunk wing. The cervini wing is designed to cover the holes in the trunk from the factory wing.

Step 2: Hold the trunk extension in place and check the alignment from the left to the right. Remove the trunk extension and hold in place the quarter extensions, check the alignment with the quarter panel and the rear bumper. (Make sure all parts properly align.)

Step 3: Included in the hardware packet is a roll of 3M double sided tape. After the trunk extension has been painted, install the 3M double sided tape along the guidelines an 1/8” away from the outer edge of the wing as shown in fi g.A. Peel and fold about 2” of the red backing from the ends of each piece of tape. Place the trunk extension on the trunk so that the backing is exposed and can be pulled. (This will allow you to get the best alignment of the part.) Center the wing from left to right and push in on the middle of the wing untill it touches the third brake light. Pull the backing slowly. After all the backing is removed, fi rmly press the edges of the wing to securely adhere the tape.

Step 4: Included in the hardware packet is a roll and two squares of 3M double sided tape. After the quarter extensions have been painted, install the 3M double sided tape along the guidelines an 1/8” away from the outer edge of the part and a 2x2 square in the bottom corner as shown in fi g.B. Peel and fold about 2” of the red backing from each piece of tape, also fold the backing from the 2x2 square of tape. Place the quarter extension on the quarter panel so that the red backing is exposed and can be pulled. (This will allow you to get the best alignment of the part.) Once proper alignment is acheved pull the backing slowly. After all the backing is removed, fi rmly press the edges of the part to securely adhere the tape.

URETHANE PAINTING INSTRUCTIONS

VERY IMPORTANT: The following painting procedures MUST be followed EXACTLY for PROPER ADHESION and to prevent fi sh eyes.

  1. To remove any mold release contaminants, clean the back of the part fi rst. Using 2 new clean rags, saturate the fi rst rag with plastic prep cleaner* and begin cleaning. Then use the second rag to remove the prep cleaner. Continuously fold both rags to their clean sides during the process. Use 3 sets of new rags throughout the process. This prevents mold release contaminants from transferring to the painted surface.
  2. Repeat step one on the front of the part.
  3. Rinse the part with water. Apply a generous amount of Ajax® or sand fi x* to a red scuff pad* (3M Scotch Brite Brand) and scrub the surface to be painted THOROUGHLY (especially where the 2-sided tape is installed, on the back side of the part, and all the hard to reach areas). Then rinse with water and dry. The scrubbed surface should be dull. If any shiny spots show, repeat the process on those areas.
  4. Using another set of clean new rags, again clean the surface to be painted with plastic prep cleaner.
  5. Spray the surface to be painted with adhesion promoter* including the areas where the 2-sided tape is installed (follow the instructions on the can for application and drying time).
  6. Apply 3 to 4 coats of urethane primer* with fl ex additive* (follow the instructions on the can for application and drying time).
  7. Wet sand primer with 600 grit sandpaper. Be careful not to sand through the primer. If you do, you MUST clean those areas with plastic prep cleaner, apply adhesion promoter and prime. Once the primer has dried, wet sand the areas that were touched up. Your surface is now ready for paint.

* These items can be purchased at any auto body supply store.

Note: Make sure you PRIME and PAINT the areas where the 2-sided tape is used as you would if it was the fi nished sided of the part! The tape adheres best when it is applied to a painted surface. Cervini’s does not recommend baking parts off the vehicle, if necessary parts MUST be supported properly!
