Default SLED WRAP INSTALLATION

Bought a sled wrap.

What chemical do you clean the plastic prior to sticking the wrap onto the panels? Isopropyl alcohol

Over time if the wrap comes off what glue to reapply ? E6000

I used IPA for prep. Close to 4yrs ago and holding on strong.
Not sure about E6000, Isn't that pretty thick glue?

If you use a heat gun it will help to remove and installation. Be careful of what chemical you use to remove old decals because it will eat into the plastic breaking it down.

Some local detailer said to clean surface with GOO Gone wash soap and water then clean with IPA.

Apply stickers at room temp.

I was thinking to warm the wrap to allow it to flex easier but not sure what will happen when it cools … peel off from cooling.

Guess have the sled and the wrap the same temperature.

Actually using a heat gun during application works very well, just don't overheat the decal. The heat really helps when you need to wrap around a body line or slight curve.

Also if you are doing an Arctic FX wrap they sell an application kit that comes with surface prep, adhesive remover and an application fluid. It also comes with a couple different squeegees as well.

If the material is good quality, and installed correctly you wont have to worry about it coming off.
Get it clean, use lint free rags to wipe it down. I apply them dry, and if its good material you can pull it back off if you need to move it. When you use heat, you heat it up to 180* and it will loose its memory and then hold the new shape when it cools down.
With air release material you should be able to work out bubbles....DONT poke it with a needle, that will just cause issues later.
After your done, set it outside in the sun for a few hours a couple times, it will just keep adhering better and "sucking down" to the surface.
Just take your time and it will turn out nice. These sled "kits" are so easy to do when compared to doing a full wrap on a vehicle where you stick a 5ft x 22ft piece at one time

IS RAPID TAC Application Fluid worth the money? $8 for 4 OZ

I have applied dry and wet on the same sled.
After a yr the dry looked like crap while the wet was still looking good.
