Installing your new 642372 NoviStretch™ Front Bumper Mask on your 2006-2013 Corvette Z06, Grand Sport or 427

This requires snap-head screws, supplied in the hardware kit, be installed on the car as described below. The initial installation should require approximately 15 minutes to complete.  After setup the mask can be easily installed and removed in just under one minute.

Tools Required

Short handle Philips screwdriver; #15 Torx head screwdriver; socket wrench; 7mm socket

Step #1

Clean the bumper and surfaces under the car and the fender wells thoroughly (tar and grease remover is recommended).

Step #2

Turn the front wheels to gain easier access to the fender liner mounting screws that you will be replacing.

Step #3

Locate the mounting screws at the edge of the bumper inside the fender liner and remove them. Replace each one as you go with the supplied snap-head screw studs. Repeat this step on the other side of the car.

Step #4

Begin the installation by fastening the snaps on one end of the mask to the screws just installed on the edge of the bumper.

Step #5

Stretch the mask across the front of the bumper and attach to the other side of the car. Note: Take extra-care when stretching the mask over and around the Splitter or Spoiler, rough edges and corners can damage the mask over repeated installations.

Step #6

Pull the bottom edge of the mask down under the bumper, noting the position of the snaps on the bottom edge of the mask. Replace the screws on the bottom of the bumper that best align with the snaps on the mask with a snap head screw stud. Fasten the snaps on bottom of the mask to the screws just installed on the bottom of the bumper.

Step #7 

Open the hood. Hold the top of the mask and pull it up to the hood opening. Secure the top corners of the mask to the body frame by looping the open straps on the mask over the tab alongside the hood-hinge.

Step #8

Remove the screws on the frame that best align with the snaps on the mask and replace with a snap head screw stud. Secure the mask by fastening the snaps on the mask to the snaps just installed.

Surface Prep and Care Instructions

NoviStretch® covers are constructed from synthetic stretch fabric that will not chaff or damage the painted surface and have been designed to perform in all weather & road conditions.

It is important that the painted surface be clean prior to installation of the cover. Over time and with use, dirt or dust, may work its way between the cover and the painted surface. Regular cleaning of both the cover & surface is essential to provide proper protection. Severe weather conditions or travel on off-road surfaces increase the recommended frequency for inspection and cleaning.

It is expected to see some cosmetic damage (small holes, thinning, fading or discoloration) to the mask over time & miles as it does its job. However, proper care will maximize product life.”

• The mask can be cleaned by rinsing in water to remove any dirt or debris then squeezing the water out and let air-dry. Wash (by hand) only as necessary. Use a concentrated soap solution on areas of the mask that may be particularly dirty.

• Always ensure areas covered by the mask are clean and free of sand and grit before installing the mask.

• For the best life do not leave the mask on the car while parked in the sun for extended periods.

• Avoid obstacles and low clearance areas in the roadway that may come in contact with the bottom of the car causing the mask to snag and the material to tear.

Special Installation Instructions

Front License Plate Installation – A front license plate may be installed over the mask without causing harm to the mask. The small holes made by the mounting screws will not cause the fabric to “run”. Thumbscrews may be used to make the removal of the license plate more convenient.

Will the mask damage the paint on my vehicle?

No! NoviStretch™ products are specifically designed to prevent damage to the clear coat on today’s painted finishes. The tight fit, the material and method of our fabrication eliminate fluttering and seams that are an inherent part of the more traditional vinyl or leather covers. In addition there are no “cutouts” on our mask that allow grit and other foreign material to get between the mask and the car’s finish.

Can I use the mask in the rain? 

YES! NoviStretch products do not trap moisture and therefore there is no problem using the mask in the rain. Because the mask material is porous, it breathes and dries quickly and completely.

 

Will the mask protect against stone chips?

 YES! The NoviStretch mask does prevent minor damage to the vehicles finish that might otherwise occur if you were not using the mask. Our customer’s experience with the product has provided much empirical data about incidents where the mask has prevented damage from road debris.  While it wont stop a large stone from damaging your vehicle, it will keep it protected from the everyday bits of debris, road tar, bugs, tree sap and other hazards you encounter with normal daily use.

 

Is it necessary to drill holes in my vehicle to install my NoviStretch™ protective cover?

NO!! NoviStretch™ products use innovative attachment systems that eliminate the need to permanently alter your vehicle in any way to use the product.  Installation is quick, easy and completely reversible.

 

Is it difficult to install the mask?

NO!! NoviStretch™ are specifically designed for incredible ease of installation and removal.  Our products can be installed in around one minute or less after the car has been initially prepped to accept the product. This is one of many features of the product unmatched by the alternative protective covers currently on the market.

 

Will using the mask cause my car to overheat?

NO!! The NoviStretch™ mask is designed to allow for sufficient airflow and keep the car from overheating despite the fact that there are no “cutouts” for the grill opening. This also means that the mask is filtering out bugs and debris that would otherwise end up in the radiator cooling fins. 

 

My State requires me to have a front license plate. Can I still use the mask?

Yes!! The NoviStretch™ mask is designed to allow the front license plate to be installed over/through the mask after the mask has been placed on the car. Piercing the fabric with the screws for mounting the plate will not cause the material to “run” when installed in this fashion.  

 

Does the product carry a warranty?

YES!  All NoviStretch™ products are covered by a one-year limited warranty. This warranty covers unexpected or premature failure of the product due to material or workmanship failure.  See our warranty for details.

 

What is the expected life of the product?

The life of NoviStretch™Performance Protective Covers will vary by customer use, however our customers typically experience a 2-3 year life.

 

How do I care for the product?

The NoviStretch™ mask is easy to care. The mask can be hand-washed (recommended), machine-washed on a “gentle-cycle” or washed directly on the vehicle and generally just requires rinsing to remove any dirt that may have built up in the pores of the material. It can be spot washed to remove any hard to remove material that may have accumulated. The mask should be “drip-dried” and never machine dried as extreme heat can degrade the elastic.

 

Will the mask fit my modified front end?  

YES! The NoviStretch™ mask with its use of stretch fabric technology has the benefit of being able to expand to accommodate most front end modification, including the addition of ground effects, etc. 

 

How does the stretch mask differ from other protective products on he market?

Our Patent Pending designs employs stretch fabric technology creating a truly superior automotive front-end protective cover. Unlike the traditional vinyl or leather mask, The NoviStretch mask fits tight to the contours of the car, has no cutouts or seams that can cause abrasion to the cars finish. It is extremely easy to use and care for. The NoviStretch mask is also less costly than the clear protective film applications.

 

Where is the product made?

The NoviStretch mask is 100% manufactured in the United States using domestic and imported parts
