Installing Contra Vision / Perforated Window vinyl

Hello forum members.

How do you install your Contra Vision?
I've done it on few jobs now and when you look strait at it - looks great.
But, when you look at your finished product from a side you see some kind of irregularity. There is some kind of pattern on the surface of the vinyl? (stretched / melted / 3D kind of pattern)

  • What squeegee do you use?
    Will this disappear in time?
    What can I do to avoid this happening?
    Also, some of the perforated dots are accumulating some air and look like then will blow easy from a jet wash etc.

(material is laminated with optical clear)

Please join me in with some comments. Thanks.

As Jon says, the marks will disappear.
Felt squeegee is fine or I use foamex with loop Velcro
