Step 1: Clean Rear Bumper
Firstly clean the vehicle as you would normally, ensuring any dirt is cleared from the rear bumper and rear door seals.
Using our alcohol wipes, wipe down the rear bumper to remove any chemical residues.
Step 2: Align the Mat
Align the mat on the rear bumper. You can draw a line down the middle of the mat and marry this up to the door join to centralise but it is up to you how you wish to position.
Some install the mat pushed right back to the door seals others further forwards towards the bumper edge, it is entirely up to you.
Step 3: Stick Down Mat
Peel off a small part of the backing paper from the middle of the mat
and position on bumper. By doing this if at first you don't align as you wish you can remove easily.
On cold days we recommend heating the bumper and mat with a hot air gun prior to sticking down.
Stick the mat down leave the over the edge part to the next stage.
Step 4: Heat Mat
Using a hot air gun heat the mat, this will enable the mat to mould to the shape of the bumper and properly grip. This will enable you to bend the over the edge part over the edge and secure correctly, this is not possible without the heat.
