FBM350D - Installation Instructions | NoviStretch

NoviStretch™ Front Bumper Mask

Step #1

Clean the bumper and surfaces under the car and the fender wells thoroughly (tar and grease remover is recommended).

Step #2

Turn the front wheels to gain easier access to the fender liner mounting screws that you will be replacing.

Step #3

Locate the upper most and lower most retaining pin at the edge of the bumper inside the fender liner and remove them. Note: pins may be of two types:  1) Male/Female push pins, which are removed by pulling out the male portion and then removing the whole assembly or 2) Pop-Rivet pins, which are removed by raising the edge with a flat-blade screwdriver and using cutters to remove the head and then pushing out the shaft or alternately using a drill to drill out the rivet. (Fig 3.1, Fig 3.2 and Fig 3.3)   After removing the retaining pins, install a J-clip (Nipple side is toward the front of the car) at each of the two holes in the bumper. [The J-clip is designed to go around the edge of the fiberglass bumper  or inner liner and serves as the nut for the screw you will be installing. Reposition the fender liner aligning the holes in the liner with the holes in the bumper. Now install the two (2) snap-head screw studs. Repeat this step on the other side of the car. (Fig 3.4, Fig 3.5 and Fig 3.6)

Step #4

Begin the installation by fastening the snaps on one end of the mask to the screws just installed on the edge of the bumper. (Fig 4.1)

Step #5

Stretch the mask across the front of the bumper and attach to the other side of the car. (Fig 5.1) Note: the tension in the mask is normal and important to the overall performance of the product.

Step #6

Open the hood and holding the top of the mask pull it up to the hood opening and secure the looped strap on each corner of the mask over the corresponding hood-stopper/bumper. (Fig 6.1)

Step #7

Pull the bottom edge of the mask down under the bumper. Note: the position of the Velcro strip on the bottom/center of the mask. Mark this position on the car and install the mating piece of Velcro to the stretch or tightness desired, taking care to completely clean the mounting surface. Caution: allow 24 hr. cure time before trying to remove the mask after it has been attached. (Fig 7.1)
