So, got to the shop at around 10 set up and cleaned the surface with a mixture of 1.5 party ethyl alcohol to 10 water. Checked the weather stripping for gunk and double cleaned them. Mocked up the location of the vinyl and taped it in place using masking tape. Then it got tricky.
The main problem I ran into with the installation was air bubbles. Holy **** did they drive me crazy. The teflon squeegee included in the kit helps, but it can't eliminate them all, and laying it down I wasn't able to prevent them from forming. The vinyl doesn't adhere to everything (at first) so I relayed the vinyl down several times to get a good fit and as few bubbles as possible.
The material is resilient, a little heat and it looks good. Too much heat (you'll know trust me) and pressure and it will rip, but you have to really screw up for that to happen. I used a heat gun from the hobby shop and the vinyl heats fast, just a little waving over the surface a hands distance away will do the trick.
Trimming, for ****s sake I know its old and tired but measure twice cut once. I erred in trimming on a couple spots and had to use left over vinyl trimmings to cover where the silver showed. You can do this and it will blend in fairly well but I know where the spots are and can see them if I look at an angle. On the side facing the windshield tuck your edge between the surround and the weatherstripping in between the glass and the surround. I didn't leave enough there and ended up edging it against the weatherstripping and it doesn't look as professional.
Be especially careful where the surround meets the door, the weatherstripping there was held in place by black double sided foam tape or something and it grabbed hold of the vinyl and ripped it (facepalm). Don't cut your car either! I did in one spot hidden by weatherstripping where it meets the door and thankfully its hidden.
Really to be honest with you I'm not satisfied with the job I did, and if I truly intended to install the vinyl wrap myself (nothing wrong with the kit mind you, user error here) I would buy a second one and start over. Luckily this was a learning experience, and let me see what the vehicle looked like with the surround colored black. I haven't done the tulip panel yet and probably won't for some time. I was at the shop from ten till 3 pm and worked through lunch. If I like the way the black looks I intend to have it professionally wrapped or painted.
If you know what you're doing, don't mind a few air bubbles or rough edges and want to change the color of your surround and tulip panel inexpensively I say go for it. If you demand perfection and are a novice like myself get the kit and have a professional do it, or go to a shop and have them wrap it with their own vinyl.
