Sticker Fab 3D Carbon Fuel Door Cover
Whether you are trying to add some contrast, nice texture, cover up a scratch, or whatever, this easy to install vinyl overlay is a great choice.
It fits with our growing theme of 3D carbon vinyl and works well with genuine carbon fiber products as well.
This material is durable and will last for years. I source the vinyl for these products from US suppliers. They are often made in the US or Europe. Material standards are high.
For the 3D Carbon material, do not apply wax. Just clean with normal soap and water.
NOT ALL MATERIALS ARE CREATED EQUALLY
CUSTOMER MESSAGE - "Got them just now, thanks for including a(n) extra set! I've had 2 sets of CF look ones from another seller and silver stars kept peeling and the carbon look faded really bad." When purchasing vinyl overlays, keep in mind that not all materials are created equally. I use premium vinyl which has high initial costs, but are the industry standards for high quality materials. Also made in the USA.

We recommend keeping a hair dryer or heat gun around. Please note the back of the product. It is labeled with an arrow pointing to the "top". Since this is contour cut for this specific application, you are going to want to align it properly from the start.
NOTE: New addition for matte vinyl. Use a WET install for this. We recommend StickerFab Application fluid or at a minimum a cup of water mixed with 1 drop of dish soap. Also have a felt lined squeegee around. For 3D carbon it is optional. If you're more of a novice just use the wet install. Then use heat to dry it out.
Best environment to do the install is 75-85 degree weather. If it is ultra warm, then do it in the shade. If it is on the lower end, use the sun to your advantage. Clean the surface prior to install.
The material is very forgiving in case the alignment is not perfect so gently pull it up and gently push it back down when you get it aligned. In general it should have a uniform edge which overhangs the surface just a little bit.
The air egress channels will let you push out any bubbles. Always start from the center and push air out to the edge.
Once there are no bubbles, apply light amounts of heat around the edge and press down on the vinyl until it sticks to the edges.
Repositioinable permanent adhesive offers minimal initial bond growing to a permanent bond that facilitates the easy application of the product.
