3)  Application fluid (Must be used in the application of the film) (sold separately)

4)  Rubbing alcohol

5)  Installation tool.

 

INSTALLATION TIME - 1 hour

 

 

PREPARATION

 

 

Using the alcohol, clean the moldings removing any dirt or residue. At this stage. repair any stone chips or scratches.

 

                       

 

Group the molding protection strips into groups : 2 doors, 2 rear molding (behind door) and 2 front panel.

 

It is a good idea to start with the smaller pieces since they are easier to apply and then move up to the larger pieces.

 

 

Using the application fluid spray the molding. The application fluid is designed to delay the adhesion process, so that you can position and re-position the clear film until you get it right. (WARNING: DO NOT ATTEMPT TO APPLY THE STRIPS WITHOUT THE APPLICATION FLUID.)

 

                   

 

 

Remove one corner of the the clear molding strip from its backing and place it on either the far right side or left side of the molding. Insure that the strip is flush and straight with the bottom of the molding. Then remove the remaining backing as you position and run the strip along the molding. (Handle the adhesive backing as little as possible)

 

 

                  

 

 

With the strip applied, using a light cloth or your finger, gently press the strip to work out and remove  the fluid bubbles from under the strip. ( this must be done before the application fluid begins to dry. (Within 5 minutes Max.)

 

 

 

 

                   

 

 

 

Using the plastic application tool, firmly press down the film at the top of the molding. Insure that no fluid bubbles are trapped under the film.

 

 

 

 

 

              

 

 

Once the strips have been applied to the door moldings, place a small piece of the strip backing underneath the strip overhang on either side of the door moldings. Using a black marker, trace the outline of the moldings edge. Use the X-acto knife to carefully trim off the excess film. (Note only apply enough light pressure to cut through the film and not the backing paper. If you wish, position a piece of cardboard of plastic behind the backing paper for extra paint protection while cutting.)

 

 

                

 

 

Once the the film trimming is complete, proceed to to remove any additional air bubbles.

Once the air bubbles are removed, allow the film will for the  next 12 hours. (Caution: Do not disturb the film,

or expose it to water during the curing process.
