Vinyl: Vehicle Wraps


1. Remove Grease, Road Grime, and Insects.

Using a degreasing agent such as Citrus Cleaner, remove any and all road grease, grime, tar, and insects from the vehicle. This will ensure a smooth surface for application.

2. Remove Debris in All Seams.

With a soft bristled brush and terry cloth, remove all debris such as pine needles, twigs, and contaminants that have accumulated in the door and hood seams. This will ensure that vinyl wrapped around doors and hoods adhere to a clean surface.

3. Remove Adhesive from Previous Vinyl Applications.

If your vehicle previously had vinyl graphics applied to it, there may be residual adhesive on the vehicle even after the vinyl graphics were removed. Using a degreasing agent, remove any old adhesive. Complete removal may take several degreasing and wiping applications to attack stubborn, dried adhesive.

4. Refrain from Waxing Vehicle.

Do not apply wax to your vehicle’s exterior surfaces for several weeks prior to your vehicle wrap installation. The wax residue can interfere with the adhesive bond be tween the vinyl film and vehicle surface, leaving the wrap vulnerable to lifting and bubbles.

5. Run Vehicle Through a Carwash.

Finally, just prior to having your wrap installed, run the vehicle through a car wash to ensure all surfaces are free of dirt and grime. Make sure the cleaning cycle is just using soap and water, no wax.

We are happy to assist with any of the above but that will incur an additional hourly charge above and beyond the price of the application.
