Do a trial run with the sticker
Step 1: Do a trial run by placing a piece with backing still on. Before removing the sticker backing, place each piece where it belongs.
Inspect the placement carefully, making sure each section fits its designated area correctly. It is important to go through this step, because if a piece is cut wrong, it has the potential of blocking a vent, button or knob. Also, instead of improving the appearance of your interior, it can look odd if the pieces don’t fit.
Carefully apply each piece to the dash
Step 1: Apply one piece at a time. Carefully remove the sticker backing and place each piece, one at a time, in its designated spot.
Make sure you are done with one piece before moving on to the next one. Do not rush the installation. It is best to start with the small pieces so you can get acquainted with the application technique.
Step 2: Push out air bubbles. As you apply each piece, make sure to push out all the air bubbles by running your finger across it.
Let it set
Step 1: Let the sticker kit set in place. When you are finished, it is important to let the sticker kit set.
Do not touch the pieces for 48 to 72 hours, following the kit directions. If you mess with them before then, you run the risk of moving, damaging, bending or denting one of the stickers.
Installing a custom dash sticker kit may seem more intimidating than it really is. If you pick the right kit, clean the area of application, do a trial run by placing each piece in its designated area beforehand, carefully apply each piece one at a time, and then let the kit set so that it is securing attached, you will end up with a new appearance for the interior of your car. It is a fun way to customize your car and give it the look you want.
