Printed Series Trail Sight Overlays V1.1
These have always been a popular item. With the addition of the printed series, we can get closer to matching other items on the vehicle. It also lets us add the "Max Load 150lbs" text.
Ships with 2 full sets of overlays. You only need to use one, but we don't like our customers to be stranded without a backup. I found out that each time I installed the overlays using a dry method, it wound up in a slightly different place. If you don't like the alignment, start over with a new one.
Clean the application area and apply the vinyl using a dry (preferred) or wet installation. Make sure the area is clean and free of dust, debris, dirt, wax, etc.
70-80 degree install weather without high humidity is the best environment.
Some will choose to clean the application area with rubbing alcohol which is okay.
"Rubbing alcohol will not damage car paint if it is diluted to between 10% and 15%. Since rubbing alcohol evaporates quickly, it doesn't damage car paint."
Make sure the installation area is completely dry before attempting an install. Cleaning agents take surprisingly long amounts of time to dry when it is humid.
Try doing the install in the shade so it doesn't heat up the vinyl rapidly. Should you be able to do a dry install, do it. This will give you the most initial adhesion. Only use wet installs when you are overly concerned with alignment issues.
If you do a 2 drops soap mixture with 1 cup of water, to prevent alignment issues, you will need to use a low heat source to dry up the vinyl and increase adhesion. Our StickerFab Application Fluid is a pre-mixed and preferred choice over soapy water though.
Low heat is recommended for maximum bonding with a dry installation as well. Note that every spot we installed these on had slightly different alignment. Initial alignment will result in various final alignment. On our vehicle the bolts were not all centered on the bolt hole.
After installed, the next few times you visit your vehicle, be sure to press the vinyl down firmly. This will help it to develop a strong bond.
So far stickers are holding up well. Got the matching hot pepper red color to match the bronco. They did include an extra set of stickers which was a nice addition
Initial concern about ability of trail sight overlays to remain intact with weather. So far heat, cold, and rain have no effect. Tight fit and stick well. Heat may enlarge the overlays and allow stretching, but manageable. Only problem noticed is the raised letters on the trail sights prevent full adhesion of overlay over that area, but still stick well. These provide an excellent visual reference in bold colors.
These decals are fantastic! They are thicker than the original version and seem to be stickier.
Looks great on my Badlands
Good quality just the fitment is off a few mm
