View Our Window Graphic Install Demo complete with Step by Step instructions and pictures.
We recommend installation be performed by an experienced graphics installer. Most sign shops can install your window graphics. Sign shops can be found in your local yellow pages under "SIGNS".
STEP 1: PREPARE THE VEHICLE
If you cannot bring the vehicle into a heated building, make sure that the outside air temperature is above +40º F (+5º C). Pre-warming the car interior during cold weather application will help insure proper adhesion.
STEP 2: PREPARE THE GLASS
Clean the outside glass surface which you will be applying the image to thoroughly with soap and water. Make sure that the glass surface is dry and residue free before applying your rear window graphic. Remember: The pressure sensitive adhesive works best if mounted on VERY CLEAN GLASS.
STEP 3: POSTION AND APPLY
(Warning - Do not use a Heat Gun or use Water to apply - DRY MOUNT Only)
Use masking tape strips to pre-position the image on the vehicle prior to removing the backing material. Carefully peel off adhesive backing from behind the image and apply from one edge and work to the opposite side, smoothing the image to prevent wrinkles. To remove any wrinkles, gently lift up the image to where the wrinkle is, smooth out the wrinkle with your hand, and continue applying.
STEP 4: BOND AND TRIM
To help adhesion, lay the disposable backing over the image and rub firmly from the center to the sides of the image. You should have extra material to trim off outside of the edge of your rear window glass. Trim the excess material with an Exacto knife or similar tool to complete the installation. The pressure sensitive adhesive bonds to the glass very well when first applied but sets more firmly after a 24 hour period.
Avoid power car washes for the first week after application. For longer life avoid using snow scrapers as they may damage the material. Treat this window graphic as you would the painted surface of your car. Do not use abrasive cleaners on the image. Avoid using rear windshield wipers as they will cause premature wear of the material.
If your Truck is equipped with a Sliding Rear Cab window, it is recommended that you wait one (1) week before sliding the window. This will insure that the pressure sensitive adhesive is securely bonded to the glass.
Avoid washing your window graphic for the first week after it is installed. After this time you can safely take your vehicle through a commercial brush-type car wash. We highly recommend hand washing for best results.
If you are using a Do-it-Yourself car wash, DO NOT HOLD THE WASH WAND CLOSER THAN TEN (10") INCHES TO THE DECAL SURFACE.
Do not use abrasive cleaners on the rear window graphic.
The perforated film can be removed by using a thin scraper device. It is best to start in one corner and lift up a small section. After this is done, you can manually pull the image from the glass. As with any decal or sticker, the warmer the outside temperature the easier the removal will be. If any adhesive residue remains on the glass surface it can be cleaned with any quality commercial glass cleaning liquid or citrus-based adhesive remover / cleaner.
CAUTION - DO NOT APPLY TO FRONT WINDSHIELD, DRIVER SIDE WINDOW OR PASSENGER SIDE WINDOW!
RAINFALL, SNOWFALL AND CAR WASHES CAN CREATE CONDENSATION THAT WILL FILL THE SMALL PERFORATIONS OF THE VINYL AND CAUSE REDUCED VISION UNTIL DRYING OCCURS.
CONSULT YOUR LOCAL LAWS REGARDING THE APPLICATION OF WINDOW TINT TO VEHICLE GLASS BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO INSTALL A REAR WINDOW GRAPHIC.
