So it is important to clean the area where you want to apply the sticker. You can use the soap or rubbing alcohol and water to clean the area as well. Avoid glass cleaning products as they may leave a residue behind and may prevent the decal from adhering.

2.    Think Of Location First

Even before you use the car decals, you should be sure of the location. You can choose to stick it on the bumper, windows, interior and the exterior surfaces to give a great look to your car.

Once you are sure about the location and the position you can go ahead with the installation.

4.    Position It Carefully

First, put the decal in the right position, and then place one side of the decal down smooth it to the other side until it is fully placed. Just ensure that backing is not removed fully. First, remove one-third of the backing and apply it to the area. In the same way, slowly pull more of the backing until you have fully installed it successfully.

5.    Finishing

Once you have applied the decal on the car, finish it around any obstruction with the help of the razor blade. It is important to ensure that you keep the tension on the film and remove any of the bubbles by puncturing them. You should also squeeze the air or water through the hole.
