Prep:

Clean car well to ensure good adhesion of the decal. Remove any wax from the car using a surface cleaner. Rewash the car to re-move anything missed and to rinse any chemicals left behind. Fill a spray bottle with a mixture of water and soap (we use baby shampoo), about 4 large drops per 32 oz. spray bottle of water. Be sure to install decal out of direct sunlight. Also have someone to assist you in handling the vinyl. 

Step 1:  Lay out the vinyl on a table Peel back vinyl being careful not to crease it. Spraying the water solution to completely cover the back. It also helps to put the table at the front or back of the car. 


Step 2:  Orient the decal using the antenna to start centering the decal around it. Then rotate the decal so the sides run along the ridge of the roof. Going back to check the alignment of the antenna as you go. 


Step 3:  Keeping the orientation of the vinyl start from the center and smooth out the vinyl. It may be better if you use your hand to smooth the vinyl. When you have the vinyl relatively flat without large tunnels you can switch to a squeegee again working from the center out (covered in a cloth that will not scratch the vinyl and keep the vinyl wet) . The top two pictures is how when you can switch to a squeegee, the bottom pic-ture is what not to do that is a large tunnel the vinyl will be wrinkled. Keep in mind this vinyl is a “wrapping cast vinyl” it can be lifted and repositioned. What this does for the installer is if there is not enough “slip” in the vinyl as you smooth and squeegee it out you can lift the corner up spray more solution. Only lift por-tions of the vinyl up to keep the orientation of the panel. You may use a hair dryer cautiously to help conform the decal Do not over heat it will shrivel or wrinkle. 



Step 4:  On the front & back tuck the vinyl over the back edge using a squeegee to push it down and against the roof. Use of a hair dryer here to dry out this part of the vinyl is help-ful just follow the same precautions as before. 

Leave several hours, depending on climate, of dry time before cleaning car. Use a quick detailer in a spray bottle for the initial clean-ing then hand wash car waiting at least several days for the first time after drying. Do not power wash vinyl or wax vinyl.
