    heat the wrap as you're applying it and pull it over. take your time and remember upload pics wing mirrors will be awkward to do btw due to the shape...

    with the air bubbles what i dit was with a needle pierce a wee hole in the middle of one then push the air out and heat it to seal it and stick it, it might still just show but makes them much better, little trick i learned off of the guy who does our vehicle graphics at work
