Pry Tools (included)
⠀1. Prepare Endplate for Removal
Evenly heat the wing endplate to loosen the adhesive attaching it to the wing. Heat from the outer side, focusing on the area where the endplate meets the wing.
To ensure paint safety, use the lowest heat gun setting and do not overheat one spot. Take extra care if your wing endplate has PPF (paint protection film).
2. Remove Stock Endplate
As the adhesive heats up and softens, start flexing the endplate up and down to test how loose it is. Do not pull or pry too hard as you could bend your stock endplate. Add more heat as needed and continue to work the endplate until it pulls off safely.
3. Clean Adhesive Residue
Use heat and pry tools to remove large chunks of adhesive from the wing edge. Use your thumb to “roll” off remaining adhesive. Rub off the residue with a microfiber towel and plenty of isopropyl alcohol. Ensure the surface is completely clean and dry, ready for new adhesive. If your wing has PPF, be careful not to damage the edges.
This is the most time-consuming part of the process, so it's smooth sailing from here!
4. Install RSNV Endplate
Use tweezers to peel the film from the new endplate adhesive. There will be 1mm of clearance around all sides of the wing blade, so take care to align the endplate evenly before making contact.
First align the thinner rear section with the back of the wing, and then align the front of the endplate, ensuring equal spacing.
Once in place, use both hands to apply significant inward pressure at the front and rear sides to securely set the 3M Pressure Sensitive Adhesive. Hold for 30 seconds and repeat applying pressure to the center.
