Do not apply in extreme temperatures! Very hot or very cold weather, and especially not in direct hot sunshine! Like any vinyl, it gets softer and easier to tear and ruin when it is hot, when cold the adhesive will not stick to the glass properly.
Wet Method - Recommended for larger decals, such as sunstrips, or decals without any wording
- Thoroughly clean the windscreen to remove all dirt, grit and grease. Be careful which product you use to clean the glass, as some will leave a residue behind that will prevent the sticker from adhering well. Most alcohol-based glass cleaners evaporate so will be best for this
- Remove the backing paper from the sunstrip and apply a thin spray of soapy water to it as well as the top of the windscreen (don't use too much soap in your water. Less is more here)
- Apply the sunstrip to glass. The soapy water will allow movement of the strip to ensure it's placed correctly
- Using a squeegee, squeeze out excess water and air bubbles from under the strip, be careful not to scratch the vinyl
- When it is fitted and you are happy, leave it to totally dry before driving off (you don?t want it flying off halfway down the road!)
Dry Method - Recommended for smaller decals, or deals with wording
- Thoroughly clean the surface to remove all dirt, grit and grease. Be careful with what product you used to clean the surface, as some will leave a residue behind that will prevent the decal from adhering well. Most alcohol-based surface cleaners evaporate so will be best for this.
- Prepare the decal for application by firmly rubbing a credit card/squeegee across the length of the decal. This removes any air bubbles that may have formed and makes the decal cling to the transfer tape.
- Peel the paper backing off the decal. If the decal clings to the backing, slowly replace the paper backing and repeat the previous step. Take extra care with our chrome and glitter vinyls when doing this.
- Place the decal onto the surface and rub it in place firmly with a credit card/ squeegee ensuring to cover the whole decal when doing this. For best results, wait a few minutes before moving to the next step.
- Slowly peel the backing paper off at an angle. Be careful not to pull the decal off the surface. If your decal pulls away from the surface, repeat the previous step again until stuck.
- Trim to suit
