1. Installation should be done when temperature is between 65° - 110° F (18°-43° C). Clean mounting surface with rubbing alcohol. Avoid areas to which the product will not be adhered. THIS MUST BE DONE FOR ADHESIVE TAPE TO PROPERLY STICK. FAILURE TO CLEAN COULD RESULT IN POOR ATTACHMENT AND FAILURE OF PRODUCT TO STAY ATTACHED. Allow areas to dry completely before attaching Body Tub Rail Covers.

2. Test fit the Body Tub Rail Covers to the vehicle before removing the plastic backing film from the double sided tape. This will aid in aligning the piece properly before securing. Peel back about an inch of backing from each end of the double sided tape. The red protective plastic film can be removed easier with the aid of a knife or cutting blade.

3. Carefully position Body Tub Rail Cover onto tub. Peel tape backing from one end working slowly to the opposite end. Make sure that both strips of the red protective film are being removed at the same time. Press firmly along the entire top surface after cover has been installed.

4. Repeat steps 1-3 for other side

Note - Do not wash vehicle for 24 hours following installation.
