Corse Stripe Fitment.

Just bought one off eBay didn't realise I could buy one from someone on here.

Any tips on fitting would be appreciated.

Below should be a picture of one from another post.

How do I get it to go over the radiused front edge?

Cut it to shape of fold it under?

As I say any advice would be appreciated but be quick as I may not resist the temptation to get stuck in and mess it up!

For starters, don't even think about fitting it "dry" if you have never done this before. Peel the backing paper off first, then believe it or not drop the sticker into a bucket of warm water with no more than a couple of drops of fairy liquid or the like. When you lift it out you will be able to apply it easily and even shift it about if not in exactly the right place. Then use a palstic squegee to squidge the remainin liquid out.

With regard to the front, you may just have to trim it off carefully with a craft knife.

Actually John you're better off fitting it dry. You need to stretch the center so that it will follow the curve of the fender..

Oh no!

Wet or dry?

Fender on or off?

Trim before or after fitting?

Float the main part on with a very thin film of soapy water. At the front edge heat it slightly with a hair dryer .... I DO MEAN SLIGHTLY .... and let it stretch to shape.

Hey, you could have it sprayed on? Or perhaps powder coated?
