Installation instructions:

 1. Unplug the tool.

2. Wipe Down the polisher with Ispropyl Alcohol in all the desired areas you wish to apply Buff Brite Skinz.

3.  Change towels and wipe down all the areas one more time with Isopropyl Alcohol. Scrub off any caked on wax or compound.

4. Spray your hands with Isopropyl Alcohol and wipe them clean with a towel. (Clean surface is vital)

5.  Remove the large main body decal from the decal sheet and center it to the front of the machine (do not press down yet) Line up the front edges and back edges with the main body panel. Run your finger down the center of the decal from front to back. If alignment is not correct pull it up and readjust the decal until it is completely centered.

6.  Working from the center to the outside lightly press down working out any air bubbles as you go.  Do the same around the edges of the side stickers pressing down from the center working your way to the front and back of the sticker.  

7.  Press down firmly to activate all the adhesive and work out any air bubbles. If an air bubble is stuck under the surface you can pop it with a stick pin or  gently with the tip of a razor blade and press down to remove the air bubble.

8.  Line up all other decals with light pressure and when satisfied with alignment, press down to activate adhesive.

9.  Rupes LHR 21 & 15 Mark l, ll, and ES Legacy tools may require slight trimming to get an exact fit after application.  The fit is very close but the case size is slightly different.  This can easily be done with a Straight Razor blade or an exacto knife.  Make sure it is a new sharp blade for best results.  It is best to apply the decal first and then do your trimming by setting the blade on edge and running it along that edge to remove the excess decal. Please be careful, razor blades are sharp!  (Please watch our video for exact visual instructions)

10.  To apply the Flamethrower Polishing Light decals, wiggle the light out of it rubber mount by applying pressure with your thumb to the back side of the light in its mount. Clean the exterior with Isopropyl Alcohol with two separate towels. Remove the decal from the s decal page and align it 1/8 of an inch from the edge of the light and simply wrap it around being careful to watch alignment along the edge.  The same decal will work for the Flamethrower l and ll model lights.

11.  Though you can go right to using your polisher it is recommended that you wait at least 30 minutes and preferably overnight before first use. This will allow the adhesive to activate completely and be more durable against the surface of the machine.  

*Care and Cleaning:

Please do not clean with glass cleaner or solvent-based products. These will reactivate the adhesive and make the edges weak and cause them to possibly peel up.  Do not use heavy degreasers or all purpose cleaners as they may dull the finish.  Use a clean, soft, microfiber towel and carefully work your way around the skinz being carefull not to catch any edges and pull them up. You may use a spray Detailer Paint Spray, if needed, as long as it does not contain alcohol or solvent.
