    Be prepared to get frustrated. Start in low spots and work your way out. Use a quality glue so it doesn't come up on you after a while

    Stick the vinyl in the dryer for a few minutes before you start to work with it. Then keep a heat gun or hair dryer handy to keep the vinyl warm while you work. It stretches a lot better when warm

    Heatgun is a must when shaping vinyl. Be careful though some vinyls cant take alot of heat.

    woooord. and if you stretch it too much/add too much heat to it, it'll get stretch marks like a fatty.
