Wing Window Preparation


Clean and Prep Outside Wing Window
Before you start your film installation, it's very important to inspect and clean the outside of the wing window. This will help prevent contamination and other possible film installation problems. Here are a few initial steps:

Tools Needed: Spray bottle with cleaning solution, Paper towels


Step 1 – check for scratches and chips

Step 2 – check the
rubber gasket

Step 3 – remove locking mechanism if necessary

Step 5 – clean with
paper towels

Check for scratches and chips on the wing window.
Check rubber gasket at the bottom of the wing window and make sure it's in good condition with no cracks.
On rare occasions there might be a locking mechanism that holds the window together–if so, you will need to remove this piece.
Spray outside of wing window with solution and clean. Use a white scrub pad if necessary.
Wipe clean using paper towels.



Clean & Prep Inside Wing Window
After cutting and trimming your film pattern, the next step is to carefully prepare the inside wing window so a smooth and easy installation can take place.

Tools Needed: Spray bottle with cleaning solution, Olfa knife, Paper towels, Squeegee,
1" Razor blade, White scrub pad


Step 1: Trim 1/8"
off gasket

Step 3: Scrape with 1" blade

Step 5: Wipe edge with
paper towel

If the wing window includes a rubber gasket at the bottom, use your Olfa knife and trim off 1/8" off the gasket. This will help prevent any light gaps upon installation.
Spray inside of wing window with solution and clean. Use a white scrub pad if necessary.
Scrape using 1" razor blade.
Often times wing windows have an alarm sticker or other pieces of film with an adhesive. Make sure to check for any old adhesive by rubbing your hand on the window and remove them.
Wipe edge of glass using a paper towel.
Spray inside of wing window with solution one more time and wipe clean using a squeegee and paper towels.
