Grafics Installations???


Recommended Posts

Anyone Have An Idea On Putting Grafics On Pitbike Without Installing Them Dry & Hope Thier Straight??way too much curving to work on dry . I Used To Install Vinyl Lettering Back In The Day using Slightly soapy water, But These Grafic decals are fairly thick. & im not sure of adhesive . I heard of the windex trick too. But Im Sure Someone Has Some Tips On These. I Can Wrench About Anything , But im like a bull in a china shop when it comes to cosmetic items. Couldnt Find Much On TT, Youtube Etc. 👍

ive done the windex method lots of times with great results 👍

your gana need a good squegee to get all the bubbles out you can get a window tint kit for like 10-15 bucks at wally world and it'll have a good sguegee in it i use the short end of a credit card works fine

make shure the plastics r clean with warm soap and water mix then dry with a lint free cloth spray the plastic with windex then the sticky side of the graphics you'll be able to slide and move it any where needed

then start in the middle working the bubbles to the out side once all the bubbles r out leave it alone for a few hours(verry important) for the sticker to adhear:thumbsup:

+1^ ive used this kit aswell i run a detail shop out of my garage done up some sweet machines the windex trick works better for moving the graphic sheet around better but does take longer to adhere
