How to install you windshield cover

1. The windshield cover will come with a lining for the front windshield. Knowing this will prevent the cover from being installed backward.
2. Place the lining portion of the cover on the windshield and roll the cover back to the rear of the aircraft. Always be careful of the antennas as not to damage them when installing or removing you cover..
3. Once the cover in unrolled, it can be lowered down on each side of the aircraft.
4. Install the front strap of the cover around the cowling area. Do not tighten. Just snug the strap to keep the cover in place.
5. Install the rear strap of the cover around the rear of the aircraft. Do not tighten. Just snug the strap to keep the cover in place.
6. Now Velcro the door panels together on each side. (this applies to high wing. Lower wing please disregard)
7. Now position the front of the cover correctly and then tighten the strap. The proper way to tighten the strap is not to pull on it, but rather disconnect the buckle from the female portion and adjust the webbing and snap back in place. Pulling on the strap might cause damage to the buckle. You might need to do this several times until the proper tension is achieved. After you have the strap adjusted there should be no need to adjust it again.
8. Now pull on the rear of the cover toward the rear of the aircraft. This will remove wrinkles and tighten and sags in the doors. Tighten the rear strap the same way as the front strap. Once the cover is in place, you and slide the strap toward the rear if needed as well as stretch the cover to desired tension.
9. To remove the cover,  disconnect the straps and pay the straps on top of the aircraft. From the rear of the aircraft pull and roll the cover up and you pull it toward you.

Things to do and things not to do

1. Do not leave you cover on the aircraft for long periods of time. The cover needs to be removed periodically to remove any moisture that might have developed between the cover and the aircraft.
2. You can install the cover on the aircraft when the cover is wet, but when you are able and the weather permits, remove the cover and let the aircraft dry as well as the cover.
3. You can wash your cover. To wash, leave the cover on the aircraft and wash with a brush and a mild detergent. Rinse and let dry. Remove the cover and check if there is any moister. If there is, let dry and reinstall the cover. Do not put your cover in a washing machine.
