[quote=xXMaGNuSXx]My friend tried to put mine on and he f*cked it up.
I'm planning on getting a smoked kit and doing it myself.
Is it just peel and stick?
I assume so. I didn't see my friend install it, he just said he screwed up. I'm guessing he didn't align it right before he stuck it on, so he stuck it on, peeled it off, stuck it on, peeled it off, etc up to the point where the vinyl just looked like crap. No more install privileges for him.
when installing vynil, just get a big bowl and fill it with water, put some dish soap in and mix it. then dip the overlay in the bowl. then put it on your car, makes it more maneuverable.
Ok, now I'm confused. I'm a newb when it comes to appearance mods but I though a vinyl was just like a big sticker. How does it adhere to the car, and how easily can it be removed? [/quote]
OK this is how I did mine. *Keep in mind everyone might have their own way*
-I took a spay bottle and put one-two drops of dish soap in it and filled the rest w/ water.
-Clean the area of the car where you want to put the vinyl.
-Placed the vinyl on the car were I wanted it w/ little pieces of tape at the top only. Then took a few step back to make sure that, that's how I wanted it.
-Then lift the bottom of the vinyl up while keeping the top taped to the car. (think of it as door on hinges)
-Spay the car w/ the solution in the spray bottle. And then peal the backing off of the vinyl and spary the vinyl very lightly.
-Starting at the top where the pieces of tape are slowly role the vinyl down until the whole thing is on.(If you wanted to move it a little now is the time to do it).
-Wipe the excess water off and smooth out any air bubbles.
-Start at a corner and peal the top piece of paper off of the vinyl.SLOWLY
Let it sit for at least an hour.
And you're done.
I hope that this helps and like I said before the different people have different ways of doing it. This is just what worked for me.
As for how easy do they come off... Vinyl decals are different from stickers. If you want to remove them you will need to use a hairdryer to heat them up a little and peal them off. Don't get the hairdryer to close cause you might melt your paint. I've heard of people using heat guns but I wouldn't recomend it.
