Default Any advice on applying graphics?
I just ordered demon eyes, a center stripe, and for pillars from Rappy Graphics.

I am a bit nervous to try the install myself. Can anyone tell me what to expect and let me in on any tips.

Or if someone knows if a good installer in the Utah County area.

Thanks in advance!

If I remember correctly www.rappygraphics.com has a few videos on how to apply them. I have only installed small ones like claw marks, etc on mine. I had a shop nearby install my hood decal.

Easy peasy. There are a lot of you tube videos out there. Get yourself a good 3M hard squeegee and a bottle of Rapidtac from Amazon.

Thanks for the help. My main concern is getting the stripe centered.

Cut the paper edge close to graphic, equidistant all the way around, center it, tape it to the hood with masking tape so it does not move, step back, evaluate, measure, correct, remeasure and begin application.
