Picking out the pattern I liked. I enrolled the assistance of my brother in the dip process. I bought a steralite bin but that wasn’t big / deep enough. So I went to hardware store and got one of those big storage containers. Learning you can’t fill them with water without supporting the sides with wood and a strap I filled the tub with hot water. You lay the film carefully in the water. If you drip water on the film then it will bubble there. After the film is on the water you spray it. Then you dip the piece transfer the image to the part. I re-installed everything.
You keep the film in the warm water for 1 minute, and then spray even with the activator and insert the parts slowly. After that remove it and was off with warm water for 3 minute to get the shine off and let it dry. Corect? You can coveret with a clear coat by the choice shine or semi shine, eggshell, etc.
If they respect you, respect them. If they disrespect you, still respect them. Do not allow the action of others to decrease your good manner, because you represent yourself not others.
