- Do not park in direct sunlight for 12 hours to allow moisture under the film to dry slowly (This is not a concern as most cars are picked up at 5pm and driven home). After 12 hours you may park anywhere.
- Moisture (not air) will evaporate from under the film over the next few days. During this time the film may appear to have water bubbles. Please do not poke or push any bubbles as this will cause a distortion in the film.
- Wait 48 hours before washing your vehicle. Keep hand held pressure washer back about 2 feet for the life of the film (and your paint for that matter, 2000 PSI is pretty damaging to anything).
- After installation the film may settle and relax. Occasionally a part of an edge may lift or you might see an air bubble. These issues can easily be resolved. After one week it is a good idea to inspect the film for any issues as they will be easier to resolve in that time frame. After one week, if there are no issues, the film should stay down for the rest of it's life.
- Wax the film as you would the paint. Detail sprays and sealants will not affect the film. Hard coatings are not recommended by the makers of the film (but many people have done it with no concerns). Clay bar should be done as with a soft clear coat, allowing the film to cool in the shade first. Edges, if there are any, can be cleaned with rubbing alcohol and a natural bristled brush.
- Consider informing anyone handling your car that it has a clear bra on it.
This information will also be provided after your installation.
