    Just a heads up if you didn't know, Sockmonkey includes instructions on the installation. It was so easy to follow, even I could do it.

    Best way it doing it Wet, so you can move it around to your liking and making sure its straight, then you smooth out the little water and bubbles, but like they said talk to sockmonkey.

    It's really simple. As mentioned sock includes instructions. But make sure you have a spray bottle of water, a little soap in it doesn't hurt. Clean area, spray area, apply decal. Move around to desired placement and start squeegeeing the water out.

    Same concept as window tinting, yep. Just easier. Only decals I had ever put on were small stuff on windows, this was the first "larger" thing I had done on the actual paint, and it turned out fine. Take your time and it's easy. Naturally you'll end up with an air bubble or 2, but they will eventually come out, especially now with it being summer and warmer out. I did mine when it was cooler it they went away relatively quickly.

    I used a needle to get rid of large air bubbles when I couldn't push them around anymore if that tip helps. :notsure:
