Fitting Venture Shield

I'm applying Venture Shield plastics protection next week, has anyone applied it to their plastics and if so any handy tips please?

Just found this but any more tips would be appreciated.

Installation steps for appling the VentureShield™ film patterns.
Before installing our patterns please consult our more detailed written instructions included with all our paint protection patterns.
Because of the large areas and curves on cars we advise you to get Full and Standard Kits fitted by us, this will also ensure you benefit from the lifetime warranty we provide with our patterns.
1. The first step is to spray the painted surface where the film is to be applied with a soapy solution.
2.Remove the white backing from the film and spray the exposed adhesive with the soap solution.3. The film should then be positioned on the vehicle and another coating of soapy solution should be sprayed on the top surface of the film.4. The next step is to pick a starting position, peel that corner up and then spray a plain water solution under the film,5. Then squeegee the film down at that start point to tack the pattern down in place.6. Now spray the outside of the film with the soapy solution again, and start to squeegee from the start position outwards towards the edges, stretching the film with the palm of the hand as necessary to fit the part to the car.7. The final step is to seal and dry the edges using your squeegee and a dry towel.
That's all there is to it.

Thanks

Guy has just sent me this

"its dead easy,fill a bowl with water and put a couple of drops of washing up liquid in it, then drop the ventureshield into the water and spray the bike with the same mixture.make sure your hands are wet as well or when you touch the glue side if the ventureshield you will leave finger prints on it.peel the backing paper off keeping it underwater then just place the ventureshield where you want it and wet the rubber squeegey thing then just ease the air bubbles out.simples one other thing,start on somewhere out of the way like the front mudguard so if you make a mess of it its not so prominent".

Re: Fitting Venture Shield

The most important thing with these types of applications is YOU CAN'T USE TOO MUCH LIQUID. You are better off spraying as much as possible, and having to use the squeegee, than trying to use too little and having it stick in the wrong place.

cheers
