||Remove wheels, water bottle cages and loosen cables in the areas film is to be applied.
||Identify all the areas of the frame that need to be covered with BONK! film and clean them with isopropyl alcohol and wipe them with a lint free cloth. You have to remove any dirt, grease or oil on the surface or the film will not adhere to those areas. Be careful not to ruin any existing decals with your cleaning solvents. We do not recommend applying film over rough weld joints.
||Measure the areas for the film and create a paper template.
||Now lay the templates on the BONK! paint protection film and trim out the perimeter (outer edge) of the pieces you need. When cutting out detail areas such as water bottle eyelets and unique contours or curves, first score the surface of the film with the blade. There is no need to cut all the way through the film, just cut all the way through at a tiny spot (enough to grab with a tweezer or your finger tips) once you have a hold of the film at the cut, just pull the film slowly and it will cleanly tear along your score line.
||Now re-check all your pieces on the bike for proper fit before application begins.
