Window and Door Control Decals for Model 3 & YUpdated 2 years ago

This kit is fairly easy to install, but we really (really!) recommend you watch the video.

Aside from that, usual rules apply for applying our vinyl products:

  • Ensure the target area is clean, and free from dust and fingerprints
  • Try to apply with the temperature is in the 50-70f range, 15-21c.
  • Take your time. Some of these pieces are quite fiddly, but they're small, and easy enough to apply. 

With that said, here's the video. Quick links are provided below if you want to quickly jump to a section.

Q. What does LHD or RHD mean?

A. LHD=Left Hand Drive (North America, most of Europe), RHD=Right Hand Drive (the UK, Australia, Hong Kong etc). The difference being, of course, that the front door designs are mirrored, as the driver's controls are on the opposite side for RHD vehicles.

Q. The installation didn't go well, I'd like to return it

A. All our vinyl products are 'single use' products, meaning they cannot be resold once used, so we're not able to provide refunds. However, we'll always work with you, but if you're really not sure you can do it, please request the return prior to installation, or consider getting someone else to help you.

Q. What's your favorite?

A. Color selection is a very personal choice. We always recommend Matrix, as it's easier to apply, and we feel it goes with the general aesthetic of the car without being too bold. Any of the darker options are easier to fit, since they tend to blend with the piano black, so any minor misalignment tends to be less obvious. The lighter colors, such as titanium, carbon fiber white and satin white do require a good amount of precision (and patience!) for a good outcome.

Q. What happens if I mess something up?

A. You have an entire spare set included with your purchase :-)
