Alright, my internet has been down since thursday.....so im a bit late in posting this....anyhow, I installed my vigg designs hood blackout from the group buy.
It arrived thursday, and I ordered it the friday before that I believe......since it came from accross the country the shipping took as long as it should have.
Supposedly it came with instructions on how to put it on, but I looked all over and couldnt find them. Since I didnt have the internet I called Vigg Designs and was told to do this:
First super clean the hood, (then I let it dry). Peel off the vinyl blackout from the paper backing, DO NOT GET THE BACKING WET!....it will destory the blackout. You then have to soak the hood with slightly soapy water and place the decal on the hood. The wet water allows you to move it around to adjust it. At this point I had to use a razor to cut around the washer jet heads....my only dissapointment with the product was that they were not pre-cut.....I did the best job I could, cutting it almost exact, I intend to use a couple drops of matt black fabric paint to remove all white around the edge of the jet heads. It came with a spreader tool, which you use to push out the water from underneath the vinyl.....I spread it out from the center out to be consistant so as not to created pockets of air in various places. The blackout is also too long....by about 4in.....when placed correctly at the front it hangs back over the windshield wipers. I cut that short and then folded it over.....I had to wait till everything was dry before folding it over and it sticking. Because it was getting dark and the temp was going to drop below freezing, I used a hair dryer and let it blow a warm breeze on the windshield rain gutter to speed up the drying process.
Here are some final pics.....I like it very much, I would just suggest that all future blackouts come with precut washer jet head holes....it was difficult to cut them while the blackout was sliding around and wet.......along with not being flat, and it would have been difficult to cut them before I stuck the vinyl on and got it lined up.
