Decal Installation

Installation Instructions 


Clean/degrease all surfaces with rubbing alcohol (if surface is safe for it,a small test area is sugested) before aplication!!!

 

Fitting Decals Wet method (recommended  for larger decals over 5" diameter)

1.             All screen decals must be placed on the inside unless stated otherwise.

2.             Fit the decal in a warm environment.

3.             Clean the surface where the decal is to be fitted thoroughly with soapy water  (ensure that the cleaner does not damage paintwork. it is important that there is no wax or grease on the surface)

4.             Place the decal on the surface and hold in place with a piece of masking tape on one edge so that you can still lift the decal from the surface

5.             Carefully peel off the backing that is next to the surface that the decal is to be applied to

6.             Spray a mild mixture of soap and water on the area the decal is to be applied this will help stop air bubbles and allow you to position the decal accurately

7.             Lay the decal onto the surface, slide it into the position you require it and with a credit card, starting at the middle work out all the liquid

8.             Leave to dry for 12  to 24  hours longer if the temperature is lower than 60 degrees

9.             Carefully remove the masking tape and the decal backing ensuring the decal does not come off with the backing. Do this slowly.

10.           Do not wash the area vigorously for a couple of weeks

 

Fitting Decals Dry  method (fastest method and effective for small decals with straight edges to work from)

6.        For optimum results, surface temperature should be above 50°F and below 90°F. If necessary, move vehicle to a location where the temperature can be within the installation guidelines. You will need a ruler, masking tape, scissors, lint free cloth, a surface cleaner(isopropyl alcohol is recommended) and a slip solution is optional for larger graphics

7.        After determining the location for your graphic, clean the surface with a lint free cloth and cleaner solution. Be sure to turn the cloth several times to insure thorough cleaning and wax removal. After doing this you should get a "squeaky" sensation when lightly dragging your fingers across the surface.

8.        Using small strips of masking tape, locate where the graphic is to be installed. If the graphic has a horizontal edge or reference point, you can use this for measuring the location from a body line or trim moulding. If the decal has a flowing design, you'll have to step back and visually inspect its location to determine if that is where you want it. Once this is done, make measurements from individual points on the design and transfer the locations to the opposite side of your vehicle. (This is the step you need to take your time on, measure from different locations, once the graphic is installed, it cannot be moved).

9.        Place two strips of masking tape (slightly overlapping each other) vertically in the approximate centre of the graphic. This is known as the "hinge" method. This will allow you to install half of your decal at a time.

10.     Remove the masking tape strips from one end of the decal and slowly peel the backing paper away, taking care not to touch the adhesive side of the graphic. Use scissors to remove the backing paper and discard.

 

To remove a decal

1.             Use a heat gun to warm the decal and peel it off gently

2.             To remove any additional glue use rubbing alcohol or similar compound (ensure that this does not mark the paintwork)
