You have questions? We have answers! If you're struggling with the installation, check out our FAQs.
Before you get started, make sure you have all your tools and cleaning solutions ready!
Prepare a 3:1 solution (3 parts water, 1 part alcohol) to remove any coatings (e.g. ceramic coatings, Rain-X solution, etc.) from the windshield.
Your slip solution (i.e. soapy water) will be used throughout the installation. Mix 10 drops of Dawn® dish soap with 1 gallon of water to prep the slip solution..
This video will walk you through every single step of the installation. Watch through once and then follow along for best results!
Clean the windshield thoroughly with a glass cleaner or alcohol-based solution (if there is a pre-existing coating on the windshield). Finally, use soapy water to clean the windshield and flush out the gaskets well.
Spray windshield with soapy water solution & place the film on the windshield with the liner facing outwards to check the fit, leaving an equal gap around the windshield.
Peel back the plastic liner halfway across the windshield & spray with soapy water. Replace the liner. Repeat on the other half of the film.
Remove the film from the windshield and spray the windshield generously with your soapy water mixture.
Position the film on the windshield (liner facing in) and roll the ExoShield up making sure to avoid tunnelling. With the ExoShield side up, release a corner of the liner and place the film adhesive side onto the glass. Unroll the film by gently pulling the liner while guiding the ExoShield into place.
Make sure the film is positioned on the windshield (there should be ~1/16th of an inch of space between the film and edge of the windshield on all sides).
Use a hard squeegee across the center of the film horizontally to tack the film. Follow this by creating a vertical tack line.
Squeegee out all fingers, bubbles, and excess water from the film.
Yes, we recommend that you remove any coatings or Rain-X on the windshield before installing ExoShield ONE using an alcohol-based solution (3 parts water, 1 part isopropyl alcohol). This will help to prevent any unwanted distortion or compromises to the optical quality of the film. If you'd like to apply coatings to ExoShield after it's installed, check out this blog post to see which ones we recommend.
A clean and contaminant-free windshield is essential for getting a high quality installation. We suggest thoroughly cleaning the windshield glass and all gaskets thoroughly before application. You will also want to make sure the space around you is clean and as dust-free as possible. For detailed cleaning instructions, please refer to Step 1 in the video.
ExoShield ONE kits were designed to fit OEM and OEE windshields. In most cases, they should be compatible with aftermarket windshields, but there may be some cases where the aftermarket windshield is significantly different and will not be compatible with the kit. We do not guarantee compatibility of ExoShield ONE kits with non-OEM windshields.
ExoShield ONE was designed to give you a quick and pain-free installation experience, but we get that sometimes things go wrong!
We recommend going through the step-by-step instructional video to help you through some of the harder steps. If you can't find what you're looking for, please contact your rep directly or email email@example.com to contact our team!
ExoShield ONE can take between 10-30 minutes to install from start to finish. This will also depend on your past experience working with film and whether or not you have someone to help you (we recommend a second set of hands to make things easier!)
