Installation guide Outline
1. Clean surfaces, ideally with a degreaser. 2. Use the supplied 3M VentureShield diagram to identify all the film sections. 3. Spray the film with the fitting solution, whilst removing the backing. (Do not touch the adhesive side when dry, this will leave marks. Spray your fingers with the fitting solution before removing the backing). 4. Lay the film onto the bodywork and slide into position to match the diagram supplied. 5. Once happy with its location, spray with fitting solution so the squeegee will slide across it, before slowly using the squeegee to apply pressure and push out the air and moisture from below the film. For curved sections, apply some stretching force to get the contours of the bodywork and avoid creasing. 6. If you are unhappy with the position, remove and start again. 7. Continue working the film with the squeegee until all air bubbles are out and the edges are securely in place. (If any edges are not sticking down, apply some pressure with your thumb for a few seconds) 8. Finally, use a hair drier to slowly warm the film and ensure adhesion, especially on the edges. Your VentureShield kit is now installed and your vehicle can be treated as normal.
