Do I have to clean first, and if so how good? Watch Video
The secret of surface preparation is making it clean. Your sticker is only going to stick to what it is applied to, so if it is stuck to grease, it will not stay there for very long.
We use a 4 step process.
1 - Wipe of dust or wash off dirt.
2 - Clean with a water based cleaner to remove any water based muck like bugs
3 - Clean with a solvent based cleaner,like wax and grease remover. This removes any oil based grime like polish or road grime
4 - IsoPropol Alcohol to get any remaining residue.
