Take a deep breath, you will be fine. The soapy method is best with Dawn dish washing detergent. I don't know why. I actually tried installing stripes when it was too cold. Those suckers were on there for most of the day before I could pull the covers off them. So I think your first experience was probably worse than mine. You want to have time to wiggle them into place, or even pull off the last few inches of stripes you just put down, because you can see you are going off-track with alignment.I have full length hockey stick strips for my '19 Scat Pack. I haven't put them on yet. I'm waiting on a buddy with some experience as my last attempt at vinyl stripes didn't end well and I don't want to screw them up on my new baby. I think I'll read through this thread for tips. It seems to me that they are unforgiving. I think last time I tried it, it was way too hot, almost 90. I thought I'd have time to move them but they wouldn't move and I ended up ripping them. I used the wet method and I loaded everything up with the soapy water but still, wouldn't move even a little bit. I'm really paranoid about it now.

Defiantly don't want to screw these up.
