FITTING BONNET LIPS.
This process is exactly the same for any bonnet lip.
We always suggest using a very small amount of polyurethane adhesive sealer such as Tigerseal to bond the bonnet lip in place (this is not supplied but easily acquired from any bodyshop or eBay), just to make sure it is adhered properly.
Step 1. Preparing the bonnet.
First off you will need to prepare the front of your bonnet.
To do this you will need to remove any wax and debris that will have built up over time.
We use a Meguires high cut polish to do this, any high cut polish will do. Use a bit of elbow grease to make sure you get through all the dirt.
Step 2. Lining the bonnet lip up.
This is very easily done.
Just hold the bonnet lip in place (the back of the bonnet lip is shaped to fit the bonnet), then using a couple of small bits of masking tape mark where the ends of the bonnet lip will be.
Step 3. Sticking it on.
Now you have the masking tape marking where the ends of the bonnet lip will be its time to pop a very small amount of the adhesive sealer (about the size of a pea) either end and in the middle.
Step 4. Making sure it sticks properly.
This is probably the most important part.
Using as much masking tape as necessary ensure the bonnet lip is tapped down nice and flat to your bonnet. Leave the masking tape on and avoid using your car for a good 12 hours.
After 12 hours remove the masking tape and your ready to go.
FITTING LIGHT BROWS.
We have used the Ford Fiesta Mk7 brows as an example here.
These are pre-fitted with super strong 3M double sided tape, We also advise using a small amount of polyurethane adhesive, such as tigerseal.
Our light brows can easily be fitted within a couple of minutes.
Step 1. Preparing the headlights.
First off you will need to prepare your headlights. To do this you will need to remove any wax and debris that will have built up over time.
We use a Meguires high cut polish to do this, any high cut polish will do.
Use a bit of elbow grease to make sure you get through all the dirt.
Step 2. Gaining access.
On the Mk7 Fiesta you will need to remove the 4 black plastic push clips that hold the grill section of the bumper in place.
This is easily done using a paint scraper, remove the central piece of each clip first then the main part.
Step 3. Fitting the light brows.
Remove the backing off the 3M double sided tape, slip the front section of the light brow down between the grill and the headlight and stick the back part down to the headlight. Ensure it is stuck properly by apply a good amount of pressure. It's always advised to pop a very small amount of adhesive sealer (about the size of a pea) either end and in the middle for extra security.
Step 4. Finishing the job.
Once you have both the light brows in place refit the clips along the top of your grill in reverse of Step 2 and the jobs done.
