When you’re applying new graphics to your car (eg. stripes), here are a few handy pointers:
Thoroughly clean the surface area with degreaser and a lint-free cloth before applying the stripes. Work in an area that is as dust free as possible!
Carefully locate the final position of the stripe on the body panel with masking tape.
<img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-1575" src="/media/wp-content/macs/uploads/2014/09/stripes-tip.jpg" alt="stripes-tip" width="500" height="386" srcset="/media/wp-content/macs/uploads/2014/09/stripes-tip.jpg 500w, /media/wp-content/macs/uploads/2014/09/stripes-tip-300x231.jpg 300w" sizes="(max-width: 500px) 100vw, 500px" />
Peel off the adhesive backing and squeegee the stripe down to the body.
To remove any unsightly air bubbles from your stripe, use a strait pin to puncture the bubble at its edge. Force the air out with your finger or the squeegee.
