Terrible Adhesion and No Instructions
I have been working to update the look of my mustang rather than buying new, and thought these would be an easy step towards that solution. I purchased unpainted (got them painted at a better cost) and all looked good. Time came to install, and as mentioned, no instructions. Tried watching the videos, but doesn't indicate which length of 3M tape goes to which side for one, so took a guess at this. Also, there are only 2 promoter pads...After washing my car, getting all oils, wax, etc off. I alcohol swabbed the first scoop and area of car needed, applied promoter to the scoop and laid the 3M tape, then used the same promoter pad on the car (needed the 2nd pad for the other scoop and side of car...). Peeled the backing, aligned and pushed it on holding it everywhere i could for over a minute (video has the guy push it on and walk away...). 3/4 of the scoop instantly came back off when i let go and as smooth as if no glue had ever existed on the tape! Only the front length stuck...So, i tried to carefully pull the front off and the tape stuck to my car easily releasing from the scoop...now I have 3M tape on my car and 3 strips of completely useless 3M tape on my scoop...If the rest had held, the front apparently would've released easily while driving down a highway. And if you aren't supposed to use 1 promoter pad for both the scoop and the car, SEND 4! Scoop looks nice, but do yourself a favor, buy sufficient 3M tape and promoter from somewhere else before trying to use what comes with the product...now I have to figure out how to get this stuff of my scoop and car before I try again...
