no illustrations but the instructions on cooperflags worked perfectly for me.
1. don't be shy with the spray
2. go slow
3. squeeze from the center outwards and from the top down
4. double, triple, quadruple check your placement before you start squeegeeing too far.
5 if it starts to dry even slightly add more spray
Agree with GMINI03. Use lots of the soapy solution lubricant. And don't forget to use tape mark guides to get them lined up just right before and during installation. Have a clean, as dust free as possible, work area and car. Patience is key. I too was a graphics virgin, and the instrcutions from Matt at CooperFlags were easy to follow. You can also check the 3M web site for more info and hints.
Wash & dry, the area the stripe is to be fitted, at least twice, as any dust trapped, will show up like a sore thumb .
Simply peel off the graphic, spray the adhesive side with a solution of water and washing up liquid/baby shampoo(1/100 ratio) Use more rather than alittle.
Place in the required area, and squeegee. Cover the squeegee if no transfer paper is covering the stripe.
It is a good idea to use tape to mark where the decal is going to be fitted.
Take your time. Make sure its completely dry/stuck, before driving.
