    Thanks! Yeah now that you brought that up I think it did help a little bit but I'll try to pay attention this week if we get any sunny days. We just had some crazy storms come through last night so it looks overcast the next few days.

    Man, speaking of glare though, it's always that chrome trim that gets me. Especially around the shifter and on the steering wheel.

    Thanks dude. Yeah of course. So I did the dash trim piece second and definitely had learned a little bit fromm already doing the shift console trim. I think every film is different that you use but in general and with this vivvid film at least, using more heat definitely helped with the orange peel. I made sure to heat and stretch it more which made for a flatter finish in the end with way less orange peel. You kind of heat it, then pull the film off and back a little and then stretch and reapply and that works pretty well. Then you can squeegee the bubbles out with your finger or a tool to get it really smooth.

    It just takes along time so be patient. Don't worry about getting it right the first time, just go slow and keep working it. There are a ton of videos on youtube that helped me out a lot so I'd definitely start there. Check ck wraps for sure. He seems to be king online for tutorials and runs a big shop.

    It's pretty fun though. I have some material left over so I'm already thinking about what else I could use it on. It's addictive! haha
