How do I apply the glue and tabs?
Don't forget! You MUST clean your tabs before coating the surface with glue. This is critical in achieving maximum adhesion. Use a CRS solution to make sure you are cleaning your tabs correctly.
Use a high-quality glue gun and make sure your glue is smoking hot! It should be completely runny and REALLY HOT when it comes out of the gun.

- Wait for the glue to solidify
- Time may vary depending on the type of tab and the ambient temperature of your environment
