Help With Graphic Installation
Posted January 07, 2009 - 09:53 PM
I was installing using a heatgun and soapy water, but I just couldn't get the wrinkles worked out of it. They were way to big to pop and work down.
It did not come with factory relief cuts. Should they be made and if so, where. A diagram or specific instruction with location, length and tapered width on cut would be great.

Doesn't matter how much soapy water you use - the more the better and it does not affect how it sticks as a final product - I prefer windex over soap.

and the graphics on my 03 wr 450 with no wrinkles and they were for a yz not a wr .
best to test fit them first and make minor modifications .
pure mr clean on the plastic and pure my clean on the graphic and just work it all out .

AND I think I used that word twice - for the graphic and the plastic - that should give you and indication that a light coat of moisture isn't going to cut it.
And if you got a 3" wrinkle, you did not adhere (no pun) to my instructions - with doing it the way I described, there is NO chance of any wrinkles at all since you are working from the middle out.
Lastly - I think I touched on the liquid part again, stating I liked windex better than soap - I didn't just say that for kicks and giggles, there's a reason - soap water can be very concentrated or not concentrated at all (depends on who mixed it), windex tends to be the same every time you use it so you aren't going to make the mistake of not adding enough soap to your water.

But as said, if its already on with the wrinkle in it then theres not much you can do now apart from cut it with a blade and try to make it look a bit better.
