If vinyl has not been properly installed, it may unstick at any areas where it has been overstretched. One must state: -Does it show streaks or has it been overstretched and color is faded? –The body of the vehicle and its edges. The edges of doors, bonnet and brear hood. –Prints and logos (if they are printed) may be very distorted at very curved areas. It is better to place them only on flat surfaces. On areas where vinyl has been overstretched, colour may fade and become white.

Heat is needed in order to adjust the vinyl well on very curved areas; however excessive heat may cause unwished shine.

Do not apply wax and shine, specially on Mat colours becomes they might turn glossy. You may use instead Leather and Vinyl Restorer Enjoy the new look of your vehicle
