    depends on what your wrapping and the amount of curvature involved - then you ned to get a vinyl suitable for the purpose intended - buy more than you need - if you get it from the states it much cheaper unless you know someone who works in the trade and can give you cut offs or end of rolls to try with first......

    ive exterior vinyled my fog light covers and chrome window strips there fairly straight and "easy" and it still took a couple of hours to do and i may still do them again

    I've watched it being done. The guys made it look so easy pretty sure it's not, but I'd love to have a go too.

    Make sure the surface is perfect first, anything on the surface will show through. Use a tack rag to wipe over the surfaces first.

    It's also fitted dry, they did use water. They used a hot air gun to put some heat into it for the more curved areas, and simply pulled it and stretched it squeesing out the air bubbles as they went

    Where did you see the sheets for buying?
