    Tech level 10

    Tools needed

    Window cleaner
    Paper towels, or newspaper


    First you start by cleaning the application surface....

    [​IMG]

    Next you want to carefully choose location, as this will determine final output power...

    Then careful remove the JDM rear panel to expose the high performance adhesive

    Once you have the locatoio secured and prepped, carefully line up the exterior location, and hte HPA side, and apply, using several pounds of pressure in a back and forth motion over the non stick side of the panel.

    Once it is in place, carefully peel back the HPA film...

    Now sit back and wait for the ladies to flock to you jock...

    True, but I cleaned a large area to begin with, to facilitate any sudden changes that might occur during installation.

    You forgot to add that the alignment has to be perfect or else your car might start driving crooked...

    If you add more stickers on one side of the car, you can get your weight distribution perfect. Just make sure to use a scale for all the stickers first, then place them in perfect position when you're on the corner scales.

    Sticker balancing >>> road course suspension setup.

    We haven't dyno'ed em yet, but we're exepcting that the whites light refraction will offset any loss of surface thermal power, and by installing them on the sides, we have effectively created a forward inertia through rear sweeping turbulence. The guys at Mugen have been onto this for years. I mean look at the design of their decal for the side, wind tunnel tested, can't go wrong stealing info from the best.

    :eek: I don't know, looks kind of technical for my blood. I wonder how much something like that costs being so so much indepth.

    Damn, I'll stick to blue printing and balancing motors and let the professionals handle that stuff.
