Instructions for applying your custom gun wrap.
Start by dissembling your gun and cleaning the outside of the frame and slide with a solvent like Denatured Alcohol. It is best to work in a lint free well light area.
TIPS: Have a exacto-knife handy to help lift wrap if you need to make adjustments. Also be very careful when removing the wrap from the paper backing so that you do not stretch or tear the wrap.
Start with the magazine base plate to get a feel for the material. Start by lining up the straight edge of the wrap with straight edge of the base plate. Then make sure the hole lines up and slowly lay the rest of the wrap down and press into place.
Next apply the wrap to the slide. Start by placing the slide straight in front of you with the front sight closest to your body. Carefully peel the slide wrap from the paper backing. Gently place the wrap near the front sight. Slowly let the wrap lay down on the top of the slide. Check the alignment and if you do not like the placement carefully lift up and adjust. Once the front sight placement looks correct line up the wrap behind the back sight. The sides of the wrap should not be touching and out like wings. Once you are happy with the placement on the top of the slide slowly “walk” the wrap down one side of the slide and then move to the other side. Gently rub all sides of the slide.
After you finish the slide it is time to move to the frame. Place the frame with the top edge facing you. Carefully peel one side of the frame wrap from the paper backing. Gently lay the wrap along the top edge while matching any cut outs and holes. Once the top edge is lined up slowly “walk” the wrap down towards the bottom of the frame. Gently rub all edges to secure. Repeat on the other side of the frame.
Once the wrap has been applied you will need to use heat to help mold the wrap to the contours. Using a hair dryer (or heat gun on a low setting) heat one area at a time and use your fingers to rub the wrap so that it conforms to the contours of the frame and slide. Wearing cotton gloves helps protect your hands from the heat.
