Body shield is a textured material with permanent adhesive. It can be removed safely from stable finishes. It can be used to cover surface imperfections to help conceal them. It should be installed above 50° F. Best installations are done in closer to room tempera-ture. If done in excessive heat it may adhere to quickly for dry installations. In colder environments it may not conform as well. Make sure the surface is clean to be sure of good adhesion to the vehicle. In some application it may be installed by misting the ad-hesive backing with an mixture of soap and water. This solution is made by adding 4-5 large drops of baby shampoo to 32oz. Of water in a spray bottle. Other applications it will be installed dry. When placing the material on the car do not press it down hard till you are satisfied with the location. You can pull it off to reposition as long as you install it without too much pressure. Once the ma-terial is in position you can then press it firmly down to the surface. In the event of the wet installation a hair dryer can speed up dry-ing but it must be firmly in place before driving. Locate the parts for each section, if multiple pieces are in the product being in-stalled before starting, making sure to know were each piece goes. Reading the instructions through and studying the photos will help with this.
Clean the area thoroughly. This install will be done dry.

TJ Door sill
Step 1: start with the flat section of the door sill. Find the section of the door sill were the metal is rolled in on the inside of the vehicle. There is a notch cut in the metal on the left and the right of the sill. You want the material to be within that section. Place the first section (the narrower of the two) with the long edge butted up against the vertical part of the sill. Carefully lay the material along the sill keeping it up against the sill and straight. Do not stretch when applying. Do not apply hard pressure yet.
