Overlays for the Trail Sights
You ask. We listened. Multiple inquiries came through for these overlays. We're not the only ones that wanted to overlay our trail sights, but your demand pushed it to the top of the list.
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.
NOTE: Badlands Orange is the closest vinyl color we could find to the interior of the Badlands. In certain light it looks very similar. In darker light it looks a little lighter, but is much closer than a standard orange. Badlands Grey is close to the dash color. Please see photos.
For close to paint matched colors, please check out our printed series overlays.
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.
75-85 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.
Trail Sight Overlays Version 1.0 - 2021+ Bronco
Look very nice. I have experience with vinyl decals and these were kinda hard to put on and the left side has bubbled up already and the driver side was coming off. Put the heat to it and lid it back down, hopefully won’t happen again.
Stickers are working great so far my only concern about exterior stickers is how then they are. When the Bronco eventually gets muddy or needs to be scrubed I'm worried they might come off. Time will tell
I purchased items for my raptor that I don’t even have just yet and the products that I received were exceptional and I can’t wait till I can put it on the bronco raptor. I especially love the personal touch and the turn around time. I will definitely be buying more items in the future.
Easy to install. Use heat to make sure it adheres and let cool before highway speeds! Haha! Dry method works fine just be patient!
Love the product
