  2. The frame is wiped down insuring all debris is off the frame and glass.
  3. Glass is sprayed evenly with a mix of water and soap (baby shampoo recommended)
  4. Window film comes with a liner protecting the adhesive, remove this liner and apply the adhesive side facing the glass, make sure to have full coverage and a 1 inch overlap onto the frame, and ensure that the entire surface of glass is covered by window film. Line up and spray the exterior side of the film (Side facing you).  
  5. Again, spray the side facing you with your solution, and begin to squeegee out the water/soap solution from between the glass and film.
  6. The execcess film that overlaps and surface of the glass onto the frame is then cut, use a hard card or Credit card as a guide to ensure a straight uniform cut parallel with the window frame.
