How to apply a sunstrip


Do not apply in extreme temperatures! Very hot or very cold weather, and
especially not in direct hot sunshine! Like any vinyl, it gets softer and easier
to tear and ruin when it is hot, when cold the adhesive will not stick to the
glass properly. Ideal fitting tempertaure is 18-21 degrees centigrade.
Anything lower than 10 degrees and vinyl can become brittle and tear.


* Thoroughly clean the windscreen to remove all dirt, grit and grease. Be careful
which product you use to clean the glass, as some will leave a residue behind
that will prevent the sticker from adhering well. Most alcohol-based glass
cleaners evaporate so will be best for this.
* Measure down from each side of the top of the windscreen and apply a little
masking tape, to mark the same length at each side of the windscreen. This will

help ensure the strip is applied as straight as possible (this is not needed for our
pre cut sunstrips)
* Remove the backing paper from the sunstrip and apply a thin spray of soapy
water to it as well as the top of the windscreen (don't use too much soap in your
water. Less is more here)
* Apply the sunstrip to glass leaving the excess at the sides and top (not required
for our pre cut sunstrips). The soapy water will allow movement of the strip to
ensure it's placed correctly
* Squeeze out excess water and air bubbles from under the strip, the side of a
credit card is a handy tool for this (one with smooth edges, if in doubt wrapping
it in a microfiber should stop it scratching the vinyl). You can pin prick any
bubbles that won't go away and press flat if they’re a real pain (We do sell
squeegees which are perfect for this task, find them in the Accessories section)
* Trim off excess vinyl around the glass carefully with a sharp blade
When it is fitted and you are happy, leave it to totally dry before driving off
(you don’t want it flying off halfway down the road!)
