How do you install mirror covers? Easy as 1, 2, 3. Things you should know before you start…
Installation Conditions: The ambient air temperature needs to be 60 degrees F (15 degrees C) or above for installation. This temperature will provide the best adhesion for the adhesive.
Verification: When you receive your mirror covers verify all that all pieces are enclosed. Usually you will have a cleaner, sometimes an adhesive promoter, and the covers.
If the cleaner is not there or if you prefer you can use straight rubbing alcohol to clean the outside surface of your mirrors. You just want to make sure there is no oil, wax, bugs, or grime that might prevent the adhesive from sticking.
Before you remove the adhesive backing, be sure to test fit the covers. I can never say that enough, always test fit any type of aftermarket accessory. Test fitting does 2 things for you: 1. It gets you more familiar with the best way to put the cover on. 2. Test fitting lets you see how they will look before you install them. Most times something can not be returned after it has been installed because it can not be resold.
When the test fit is complete, remove the adhesive backing, install the cover and hold firmly in place applying consistent pressure. I like to use a towel and wipe firmly from the center to the edges to remove any air bubbles that might be trapped under the adhesive. Polish your mirror covers up, stand back, and admire.
I bet you’ll be quiet impressed.
