Cut the door panels to size by placing the straight edge over the area to be cut and cut along the straight edge with a metal blade. Door panels generally come in sections that are nine meters wide and 2 meters high. The panels may need to be cut down to size to properly cover curved openings.

Allow the adhesive to cure for 30 seconds. Touch the panel on the door, adjust it as needed.
