    Hi guys, I tried installing the Phantom Skinz I received yesterday and I couldn't for the life of me get the smaller pieces for the sides of the phone (only tried the sides on the top half of the phone) to stick. They would just slide right off and would not adhere to the phone. It was especially bad around the corners. I have installed many of these (multiple phones, macbook, ipods, etc...) and I have never had this much trouble installing one. Any suggestions from you guys who have installed one of these on the Droid? What should I mix the water with to get the best stick? I tried a drop of dish soap and that obviously didn't work. I did get the one on the screen fine (however there are some bubbles that still haven't went away after 24 hours :mad:!) Anybody?

    Hi Matt,

    I apologize if you are having difficulties with your installation. The shape of the Motorola Droid caused our design team to provide you with some pretty thin strips to cover some of the side areas, etc. The trick to installing these is to let the strips almost dry (see our "Tech Tips" online). You do want to get them wet first (as well as your fingers) to avoid leaving finger prints in the adhesive. You can accelerate this drying by lightly using a household hair dryer. They should stick fine then. BTW, some dish soaps are just too soapy for installs. We recommend Johnson's baby wash or similar. Many "Drug Stores" like Walgreens or CVS have these in 1 ounce bottles in their "convenience or travel" size. If you have any additional questions, feel free to post them or PM me.
