Instructions for Simple Wedge or Block-shaped Car


Trim Material


Prepare Car and Skin
  1. Remove any dust or debris from the surface of the car.

  2. Determine how much material is needed to wrap the car without overlapping the material on the bottom of the car. Trim off the excess.


Apply Skin



Remove Backing
Apply Skin
  1. Peel off the backing paper.

  2. Use a soft, wet sponge to press the skin onto the car body. The transfer paper will release when it is thoroughly soaked. Do not use force to remove the transfer paper.

  3. Fold the design under the bottom of the car.

  4. Smooth out wrinkles by dipping your fingers in water and rubbing over the skin.


Finished Car


Finish
  1. If desired, apply a clear finish. Test compatibility with the finish by applying the finish to a small area first (or on a scrap of wood with a piece of body skin applied).

Instructions for Complex Body Shape

  4. Smooth out wrinkles by dipping your fingers in water and rubbing over the skin.

  2. If desired, apply a clear finish. Test compatibility with the finish by applying the finish to a small area first (or on a scrap of wood with a piece of body skin applied).
