How to Apply GunWraps' Shotgun Vinyl Gun Wrap
Step 1 - Cleaning: Before wrapping your shotgun, it is vital to thoroughly inspect, prep, and clean the surface of your gun. Make sure your gun is empty before beginning the application process. Oil and grease will be present and must be completely removed. If not, the material will not properly stick to the surface. We recommend using a degreaser formulated for guns to remove any oil or grease from your gun's surface.
Isopropyl alcohol should be used to remove any residue left behind. It is helpful to use a small soft brush to scrub into the crevices of your shotgun to ensure that your gun is clean. Wrapping your shotgun with your bare hands may add natural oil or grease to your gun, so we recommend washing your hands with dish soap after cleaning your gun prior to installation.
Step 2: Look at all the universal pieces included in your kit. Take your time removing pieces from the backing of the sheet as they can tear easily. See below
Step 3 Primer: (Optional step) Apply primer in curved problem areas that can lift to help with longevity of your wrap. See below.
Step 4: Center the receiver sheet using the v notches to the top of the shotgun as shown below. Apply firm pressure using your fingers or glove to the top to secure the sheet in place.
Step 5: Continue to apply the receiver wrap as shown below. Our kits are universal and may require additional trimming for a custom fit. Apply firm pressure using your fingers or glove as you wrap around the receiver.
Step 6: Align pattern of the buttstock wrap to the pattern of the receiver by overlapping as shown with the arrows below and apply firm pressure using your fingers or glove.
Trim excess wrap, heat all edges and repeat step 6
Step 7: Center the foregrip wrap using the v notches to the bottom of the foregrip or pump as shown below. Apply firm pressure using your fingers or glove to the bottom to secure the wrap in place.
Trim excess, heat all edges. See below
Step 8: Remove barrel, refer to manufacturer manual for instructions on how to properly disassemble your shotgun.
Place cut strip on the top of the entire length of barrel slightly above center line. See below
Align rear barrel wrap to the center of the barrel guide ring. See below
Align front barrel wrap to the center of the barrel guide ring. Overlap front barrel wrap until pattern is aligned (some barrels may have a small uncovered area around the guide ring, you may use our included patch wrap to cover this area). See below
Wrap the side shown below first to create a proper overlap.
Continue to wrap the side around the barrel then trim to the edge of the tape using light pressure to avoid scratching your barrel as shown below.
Place another cut strip over the wrapped side. Align it to the trimmed edge
Trim using light pressure along edge of the cut strip to avoid cutting through both layers. Remove the excess wrap and the cut strip.
Reassemble the shotgun and enjoy your new gun wrap.
