Easy enough to do, sharp knife and a hair dryer. If it cocks up heat up again and redo

3M vinyl wrap is quite tacky, from memory I think if the rear was not on show I took the wrap over the edge.

I thought this piece would be easy ...   I just wanted to take a few to see how it would go. I wont do anymore till after my daughter heads back to college this weekend.

Lots of late nights in your future I see. Sore fingertips you will have. Side note: Did you get a glove to help install?
That piece looks good by the way.

 :084: no I didn't get the gloves or the tape

very happy with the color I think it will look great , it is a Satin pearl that should flash in the sun.
