Screens MUST be cool to the touch before install. After install, park vehicle out of direct sunlight for 24 hours and with windows cracked if outside.
Warm the vehicle up to 70 degrees and turn off fans before installation. If the film is brought to this temperature as well, it will be more flexible and can lay down over more curved areas better.

1.) Mist surface of car, wipe surface with supplied cloth
2.) Mist surface again, gently use squeegee to remove dust particles
3.) Mist surface so the entire surface remains moist
4.) Carefully lift edge of film to be installed, spray edge, spray as you separate film from backing
5.) Saturate front and back of film, more solution = easier to set properly & easier to squeegee
6.) Adjust and align softly with fingertips to center on screen, there should be about a 1mm gap on the edges. For instrument clusters, tuck behind bezel edges
7.) Squeegee from center of film to right, switch hands (if possible), squeegee from center to left working up and then down the film
**On longer pieces, line up the edges and tack the edges first to set the length of the film.
8.) Lightly mist top of film again to help the squeegee slide.
9.) Wrap towel around squeegee, and then squeegee from center to edges (clockwise or counter clockwise) around all edges
10.) Use towel to wipe excess moisture
NOTE: If there is dust or excessive remaining bubbles (some bubbles are normal), mist edge of film and GENTLY lift while spraying (to avoid breaking the adhesive) until film is lifted past dust/bubbles/etc. Respray, relay down the film, re mist, then squeegee from inner-most lifted part outwards, using techniques above.
⭐REPEAT with additional film/trim
⭐For Kits with buttons or small pieces, install everything else first, empty bottle, and fill with plain water for better tacking!
⭐On larger (Tesla style) touch-screens it isnormal for the first 24 hours for the screen to act a little erratic as moisture bubbles feel like fingers. Use extra care when you squeegee out extra moisture to help minimize the touch-sensitivity.
Heat up the film on the vehicle to make it more pliable. Then using a very soft plastic, or even a fingernail, pry off the edge of the navigation screen. You can attempt to save the film if you'd like. If so, spray the back of the film as you remove it to help it come off easier. For the instrument cluster, use your soft plastic or fingernail to tear a bit of the film, then peel it off. Since this film does typically tuck under the bezel, it will be hard to pry off an edge. Tearing the film will be necessary to peel off.
⭐ If you are having trouble with the install, keep practicing on your first set of film until you get it down. We offer replacement film at a much discounted rate to ensure you get the perfect install.
