    p.s. milenkoD, isn't taht clear bra awesome? i love it. it protects my front, but i get chips elsewhere on the hood. how far back does your clear bra go on your car?
    Mine goes back about a foot or so. Aft of that...it's all chipped from the rare times a rock happens to pelt me mid-hood.

    As far as keeping it wet, let it drip off and/or run you finger accross it to wipe off the excess. A small spry bottle to mist it with sounds like a good idea.

    yea misting is good.
    did you just use your fingers to apply this? fingerprints wasn't a issue?

    btw, 1foot seems kinda short...mine goes up about 2feet i think. does yours wrap the hood as in like cover the front edges?

    Not an issue as long as you keep your fingers moist with the solution.

    Maybe is a bit longer...yes, wraps down the fenders, thicker applicatioin on the HID lenses, foglights. Also on the backside of the side mirrors, door edges and trunk lid. I'm all covered

    This is good advice, and don't use any alcohol. I just got my BSEs and installed all parts except the screen saver in about 20-minutes. I only dipped them in water and found them easy to slide into place during final adjustment of each piece.

    I have put Invisible Shields on about four iPods for myself and friends and found the small BSE parts to be simple and forgiving to install compared to the larger iPod pieces.

    Just take your time and they will go on fine.

    I ordered mine on Friday and got it in the mail on Wednesday. (July 4th was Tuesday so I guess it affected the delivery). So far I like the BSE. It was a bit tricky to apply on some parts of the Treo especially the part that covers the surroundings of the earpiece on the top front.

    I have ordered my BSE for the Treo 650 today!!!! I went ahead and ordered 2 of them because it might be handy to have a backup...in the event I trash it...LOL.

    If the install goes well maybe a buddy of mine that has a 650 would like it!

    I just installed my BSE last night..I'm sooo happy with it, it looks great, adds a bit of grip, and I just feel so much more comfortable with it being better protected.

    I do not have any intention of installing the screen protector portion of it, so I cut it up and am putting the bits on some of the unprotected parts, like the center button which I tore up on the 650 because of Bike or Die.

    BSE + Crystal Clear Case is working great for me. The instruction is on the back of the receipt. i use water + baby soap... if the skin get "too" wet it'll take longer to "settle". just push with your finger tips and use a credit card to push the air pocket out... it's pretty easy. Like other said...take your time. Do keep your finger tips wet or it'll stick to the skin.

    HTH.

    The only problem I've ever encountered when installing these BSE is that when I try to get bubbles out, it leaves the BSE kind of wrinkley in the trail or path the bubble takes to get out.

    you're being too agressive with a credit card or squeeggee device and stretching the skin...take it easy

    Finally got it in the mail. One of my old hobbies was modeling, so I used those patient skills to apply the skins and they went on perfect, and I was done in 20 minutes. I took the battery out and did the battery cover first, then the rear upper portion, then the section that covers the Palm and Sprint logo, after that the bottome, ending with the sides, letting it set for a couple of minutes in between each application handling the phone very carefully. I had a solution of soap and water in a bowl and just got my fingers wet and applied the residue from my fingers on the skins...no more, no less, which allowed it to cure enough in between applications so I can get the whole thing done. I didn't use a credit card to push out the bubbles if there was any. I kept my right hands finger tips wet with soapy water, and just petted it away smoothly on each application and since I didn't soak the skins, they stayed on well enough for me to lightly handle the phone as I went back to perfect everything. They look perfect now...I can only imagine what they will look like when completely cured, and the shiny clear coat finish looks real nice.

    Fantastic! Still, I think this is the best option to protect your Treo from everyday wear-and-tear.

    Words can't explain...I will try to use some from the english language. It gives the phone a glossy clear coat look as well along with its protective properties. It doesn't even look like I applied it...Instead it looks like it came that way from the manufacturer. Thats how awesome it looks.

    I would post some pics, but the picture quality wouldn't be able to explain what I am trying to.

    Agreed . It took 2-3 days for some very small bubbles on my battery cover to disappear but they are all gone and the application looks professional. Great product at a very good price.
