Step 1. Starting from the bottom of the area and working up apply first tracking. This will be the base track for your letters, it’s important to get this totally straight as this is the foundation for all other tracks. If applying more than one track length, butt up as tight as possible the second or third track so no space is showing. Once bottom tracks are in place you will need the cardboard templates to apply the top track.
Step 2. Now place the cardboard template into bottom track ensuring it fits into the capacity of the track. Once securely in, now apply top track ensuring a tight fit, but not so tight as for the cardboard template to bend. If this is the case you will require to increase the space slightly.
Step 3. Once happy with the correct spacing, slide out the cardboard template. Now try a letter ensuring that it moves freely, but also is retained inside tracking.
Step 4. Finally you will need to repeat this process until all track is used up. Always butt up new bottom tracks right up to the top track on the previous channel, ensuring all are parallel.
Step 5. Once completed apply letter stoppers at the ends of each track, prevented letters from falling out. Finally rub all tracking firming from left to right, possibly with a blunt object or the edge of a ruler, applying sufficient pressure so as to make the self adhesive track vanish into the surface behind
