To begin we need to clean the application surface with denatured alcohol. This is the best way to remove any oil residue and wax, leaving a completely clean surface for vinyl application.

1. Saturate the surface with a soapy water solution (99.8% water and a couple of drops of detergent soap), and shake it up (to add a bit of slipperiness to the water).

2. Pull a foot or two of the vinyl striping away from the liner. Apply vinyl gently (get as straight and level as possible here).

3.  Now saturate the front of the vinyl (if applying to drywall or similar surfaces apply dry) to help with squeegeeing down onto surface (it will prevent scratching and help with application).

4. Start to squeegee the vinyl striping down; the water will squish out and the vinyl will adhere.

5. At this point work your way down the vehicle a few feet or longer at a time and repeat steps 1, 2, 3, and 4.
