use windex and mist the lid..do not use too much. apply the wrap in sections and work out the air bubbles. the windex mist will allow you to move the wrap around a bit incase you mess up. after the wrap s in its desired place hit it with a heat gun to set it. The heat will actually shrink the wrap and lid together to form a really good bond and also dry up the windex thats under it

I always start with the piece that goes around the windows and then do the sides blast is e roof and hood. I have heard of the windex technique but I have never used it. Just take your time and go slow also upgrade-RC.com has some great instructions for installing wraps.

It is here: http://www.upgrade-rc.com/buggyskini...ggyinstall.htm and it is very helpful as I have been racking my brain trying to figure out how to do it LOL.
