did it and did the front reflectors too!

wow, just finished doing it
pain in the ass!
ofcourse i didn't follow any of the directions
didn't use the soapy water etc, was afraid it leaks into the side LED and ruin it
so i just peeled the backing tape and started on one side and slowly pushed it to get all the air bubbles off
i realised the eaiest way to do the curvy bits is to stretch the vinyl wrap
that way it looks smooth and without creases
also did the front reflectors
i like the way they look a lot better now
all or 6.99

Looks really good.

For the edges, I use a hair dryer, it helps to make the vinyl soft and easier to go around the corners and edges.
