Ive applied many things before but on much smaller items.
ie, cell phones (screen and body protectors), ipad, camera, monitors, etc.
I believe the key is soaking beneath so you can move it into the right location and begin to squeeze that water out.
Similar to curved cell phones, they do want to pull away at corners but each time you squeeze that water out, it pulls closer to the body.
Where did you get your stripes?
I like how yours extends all the way down.
Once again, NICE TRUCK
