  • This step is very important! Push the strip onto the adhesive starting at one end slowly forcing out air bubbles as you push the strip down.

  • Once the Car Stop is in place, run a bead of adhesive along the edge of the Car Stop. Use your finger or a cloth with soapy water to smooth out the adhesive before it starts to set. We recommend putting masking tape on the Car Stop Strip before running the bead to ensure a neat finish.

  • Remove the masking tape before the adhesive sets. Wipe any excess adhesive with a cloth and lacquer thinners

This is a trully remarkable product that will make your life so much easier!
