  • 1. Prepare

    Protect surrounding non-fabric materials from overspray. If overspray occurs, quickly wipe up.

  • 2. Shake

    Shake can well.

  • 3. Ventilate

    Open all vehicle windows and doors for ventilation.

  • 4. Test

    Test for colorfastness. Spray hidden area until wet and wipe vigorously with a white absorbent cloth. If color rubs off, DO NOT USE.

  • 5. Spray

    Hold can upright 6’’ (15cm) from fabric surface. Overlap spray using a slow, sweeping motion. Two light coats are better than one heavy coating.
