After you had your racing stripes installed....

Did they tell you not to drive it for any period of time, or not to get wet or anything? I installed all of my stripes minus the front and rear bumpers on Saturday, and finished on Sunday. So I think its had enough time to adhere to the car. I left it in the garage last night and today, and borrowed my dads truck to get to work.
So I just wanted to know if its ok to drive it in the rain, etc.. Its been raining everyday here in St. Louis, and I think its supposed to rain all week as well. I would be heartbroken if all my hard work went to waste if they started to come off because I drove it.
Any ideas?

Thanks

No, you should be good to go after a day or less. Did you get the 3M vinyl that doesn't require water?


The only time I've been told not to mess with the car was after I got the window tint put on. 3-5 days to dry, wasn't supposed to roll the windows down. 30 days to eliminate any bubbles left over from the process.

The instructions didn't say anything about water. I used Rapid-Tac though. That stuff is awesome.
Holy cow, 30 days not to roll your windows down? That's insane! I think my wife is going to get my windows tinted for me for Fathers Day, I better check into that first.

I was asking about wet adhesive vs dry for the vinyl because 3M makes vinyl with a dry adhesive already on it and channels to get the bubbles out, that's what my stripes are. It's mostly used for wrapping cars but I wanted to get the darkest metallic grey I could and that's what they had (7 year warranty was nice too)



For the window tinting 3 - 5 days is what I was told before you can roll them down, usually less if it is sunny out (the sun speeds up the drying time). 30 days is for any bubbles to clear up/dry out. The place I had all the work done told me after 30 days if there were imperfections to bring it back to have it fixed/redone. The tint is also 3M CS35.
