A step-by-step guide of how to correctly apply Decals to your vehicle. When unsure, we strongly advise opting for professional installation, particularly for larger decals. Avoid installing in cold or damp conditions, as this may hinder adhesion and diminish the lifespan of your decal.

Follow these easy steps to achieve the Topaz Standard: 

STEP 1 /
Start by cleaning the area of the car where you plan to apply the decal. We recommend using Topaz All Purpose Cleaner to remove any dirt, wax, or grease. Wipe the surface with a clean, microfibre cloth.

STEP 2 /
Carefully position the decal on the car, making sure it is centred and aligned as you desire. You may use masking tape to temporarily hold the decal in place. 

STEP 3 /
If your decal is large, you can create a hinge with masking tape. Apply a strip of tape along the top edge of the decal, allowing it to act as a hinge that holds the decal in place while you work.

STEP 4 /
Peel off a small portion of the backing from the decal. Be careful not to touch the adhesive side of the decal with your fingers. 

STEP 5 /
Slowly press the exposed part of the decal onto the car surface, starting from the centre and working your way outward. Use a squeegee to smooth out any air bubbles and ensure proper adhesion.

STEP 6 /
Gradually peel off the backing while smoothing the decal onto the car surface. Work in small sections, especially for larger decals, to avoid air bubbles or misalignment.


STEP 7 /
If your decal has a transfer tape covering the top, carefully peel it away at a sharp angle. This should be done once the decal is firmly in place.

STEP 8 /
If you notice any air bubbles trapped under the decal, use the squeegee to smooth them out towards the edges.

STEP 9 /
Step back and inspect the decal for proper alignment and adhesion. Make any necessary adjustments while the decal is still partially applied. 

STEP 10 /
Let the decal cure for at least 24 hours before washing or exposing it to harsh weather conditions. This allows the adhesive to fully bond with the car surface.
