When cutting out vacuum parts, cut slightly outside of the guide lines. Check the fitting and make necessary adjustments with a file or scissors.
Vacuum parts are usually attached by either being pinned down by rivets, or with the use of adhesives. In the latter case please take precaution: use the minimal amount needed so that you do not stain the vacuum surface. Pick an adhesive that does not erode into the surface and can be wiped away with enamel thinner or zippo oil before it solidifies – we suggest using clear rubber adhesive or clear epoxy. Avoid using adhesives that can cause the surface of the vacuum to turn white, or ones that will damage the paint surface such as plastic adhesives.
Another method (which will take more time) is to mask the underside and paint the border black (or the colour of the surface that the vacuum lands on), and use the painted border as the adhesive base. This will cover up any imperfections that the adhesive may cause.
