    I fitted stripes to my RX8 many years ago...more bubbles than an Aero & crooked as fcuk




    I used the dry method on a really windy day just before I had to go to work

    To make it even easier, have another pair of hands
    Fitting stripes, I would hinge them in the middle IE put them in place with the backing paper still on and run a bit of tape across the middle, then fold one half over the other, remove the backing paper while still folded over and cut the backing paper off, light spray of you're water mix onto the car and fold the vinyl over onto the car...try not to get any of the backing paper wet or it will stick and can be a mare to remove! 90% of stuff on this page here has been fitted wet > www.domedgels.co.uk/gallery.html , when done leave to dry/bond for as long as possible, other words dont take it out right after or you may see them in you're rear view mirror lol

    so fitment was easy with a wet application, job done, stood back and just thought naw, just wasnt feelin it at all.
    so off they came and settled for a polish
    thanks for the advice anyway guys, glad i used the wet application as it coulda been tricky removing them if id done it dry
