Not bad for carrying sway bars.

Thank you for posting Eric!
Its time to redo mine again.

A suggestion.... make sure if you are cutting out the vinyl piece to be sure to make it long enough so that when it starts to dry out that it doesn't shrink above the trim. It will start curling at that point.

Very helpful writeup. A couple of quick questions.

- What spray vinyl did you use? Is 3m Super 77 okay?

- How did you handle the spot where the untrimmed targa bar piece overlaps the space where the sail piece goes during installation? Did you trim the end of the targa ends before installing the sail vinyl?

Thanks


Super 90 is best. Follow the instructions for set-up time and pattern spray (left/right and top/bottom).

The section in question with the overlap gets what they call a "double cut". This is where you lay the piece over top the other and make a single cut through, cutting both pieces. You then remove the lower piece and press the top piece in it's place.

If done properly, it's almost impossible to see the seam on some materials.

Hope that helps.

Toast - I always slice/cut toward the bottom of the trim piece. Good point. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Thanks Eric. I bought some 3M Super Trim Adhesive 08090, which may be a bit of overkill, but seems like it will work as well as the Super 90.
