HEADLIGHT / TAILIGHT INSTALLATION GUIDE
VViViD Air-Tints are specifically designed for highly curved lenses that would normally be impossible to wrap.
Clean the surface to remove any oils, wax and other surface contaminants. You can use isopropyl alcohol or VViViD Grime contaminant wash to clean the surface properly.
Measure the size of the area to be wrapped. Cut the vinyl to shape leaving extra material on sides for easy handling and positioning.
PEEL & STICK
Peel the backing from the vinyl to expose the adhesive. Make sure the air-tint is applied to the surface quickly to limit the chance of dust and other particles from sticking to the surface. The air-tint is a dry application film, no installation fluid is needed.
Apply the film to target surface, with a soft squeegee or glove, remove any air trapped in the adhesive by carefully pressing it out. If you encounter creases or wrinkles, simply heat the film, re-position and apply. If the vinyl is not sticking, use heat and press the film into position. If you’ve stretched the film, heat the film after it’s been applied to erase memory in the film and to ensure no shrinkage.
TRIM & DETAIL
Before you trim the area, make sure the vinyl is cool to touch for cleaner cuts. Carefully cut the film to shape. This can be done by using the flat edge of the blade and contouring the lense. It is always wise to heat the area once more to make sure the vinyl has settled.
