INSTALLATION OF C-4 LOWER DOOR HANDLE SCRATCH GUARD

#5504

 

This product is designed to prevent paint scratches to the lower section below the door handle.

 

1)       Use a mild wax cleaner to remove wax, oil or dirt from your cars paint (under door handle)

       Do not use alcohol it may remove the paint!

2)       Use two pieces of masking tape (one on front and one on back) to remove the clear product from its backing.

3)       Holding only the corners of the product, position it in side the lower door handle section and apply.

4)       Rub lightly a dry cloth over the product.

5)       Wait 24 hours for the product to dry before washing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

STEP # 1 :  Surface Preparation

 

In order for the product to adhere correctly to the door handle surface, it must be free of all wax, grease, oil or cleaner.  The surface area should be smooth and free of ruff surfaces or paint chip edges.

 

1)       Use rubbing alcohol ONLY, to clean the surface of the door handle and lock surfaces.

2)       If your door handles and lock section have uneven surfaces, due to stone chips or surface damage, use the 600 ultra fine sandpaper (supplied) to smooth out the door handle and lock section surface. When finished wipe off any excess material  with a dry cloth.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3)      

 

 

 Use the rubbing alcohol ONLY to completely clean the door handle and lock section surface and let dry. Make sure surface is clear of all dirt or debris.

 

4)       KIT #2 ONLY (DHRLP product) : shake the bottle of  special formulated liquid polymer. Insert the paper guard between the top door handle & lock section and the corvette body of the handle area. This will prevent getting the product on the paint of your car. Using the fine brush supplied, apply the product on the top and side section in between the handle and door. DO NOT APPLY THE PRODUCT TO THE FRONT FACE OF THE HANDLE OR LOCK SECTION!  Let the product dry for 1 hour. If any product is applied to the face it will need to be sanded flat or it will cause an imperfection once the face sections are applied. Note: (DHRLP product is not included in kit # 1)

CARE OF THE C-4 DOOR HANDLE RENEW/ RESTORE PRODUCT

 

The product is designed to last up to 8 years under normal conditions, longer if you care for them. The product will resist heat, cold, rain, wind, minor impacts, stone chips and will most likely out last your cars paint. The product is not an armor plate and can still be damaged. Avoid scratching, pealing or hitting the product. The product may be cleaned using normal car wash soap, but wipe carefully not aggressively.

You may apply a coat of wax, but only let the wax set for 1 minute and then wipe off slowly and with care. You may apply Armor all and other silicone shining products, but no products containing ammonia.

For extra protection against road impacts, you may apply the C-4 DHR clear product # 5503 overtop of the Gloss or Matte product.

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us or e-mail us. Please view our website for product updates, tips or new products www.c4dhr.com

STEP # 2  Product Application

 

Make sure surface is clear of all dirt or debris.

 

1)       Group left and right door handle and lock sections. Each section is identified by a Left or Right label on the back of the product.

2)      Start with the left door handle and lock section of car first. At this point apply the left lock section first. The c4dhr product has a special application/ protection film applied on top of the product. Fold down the application film 90 degrees, about 1mm along the top exposing the black of the product. This is necessary so that you can line up the C4DHR with the top left and right sections of the door handle

 

 

 

 

 

 

3)     

 

 

  On a 35-degree angle form the lock section line up the top left and right edge of the product with the top left and right sections of the lock section and apply working downwards. You will also notice that the product is designed to about ˝ inch under the lock and handle section.  Caution, once product is applied, it cannot be removed or it will lose it adhesive properties. Once applied slowly peel off the white protection film.

 

 

 

 

 

 

4)    

 

 

   Apply the door handle section using the same procedure. Line up the left, middle and right section of the product with the door handle section and apply, working downwards.

5)       Wipe the applied product with a dry cloth.

6)       Let the product set for 24 hours before attempting to clean or wash.
