I recently ordered and installed my AVS aeroskin 2 but realized after watching an install video that mine didn’t come with the adhesive primer or mention application. Has anyone else had any experience with the product. Avs customer service told me their senior tech said it’s not required.

Basically the primer would be for removing chemicals that have built up over a period of time .So if your bronco is somewhat new ,just using alcohol would be fine for the install .

I am still on the fence about the Aeroskin product because it tapes directly to paint. Any small areas open will let dirt and water get under and then sit on the paint forever without the ability to clean it.

My FJ cruiser has one that bolts underneath and does not touch hood. I can clean under it etc.

I have seen some pics of pretty hefty paint damage, clouding, etc that the aeroskin has done to some F150s. Some have also broken in half and flown off.

I am also wary of first products out for a vehicle. Waiting to see if weather tech comes out with one. i saw the bugflector 2 which is bolt on etc but someone said they had trouble closing their hood after install. Still on fence about hood protection.

I installed the Aeroskin without the primer. I cleaned the area and then did the install. I did not drive the car for a few days. I was on the highway and it started to lift off the hood. When I got home I purchased the adhesive primer and it was good to go. No more problems lifting off the hood.
