I did not like the fitment. Each piece had to be trimmed. I took them off the same day and threw them away. Lost $31.

Starting to sound like people don't know how to work with vinyl. A touch big is no problem just tuck the edges. I've got a feeling the people that had problems are not useing the soapy water and heat gun/hair drier.

My vinyl install kit includes:
soft rags
q-tips
razor blades
x-acto knife
bottle of soapy water
hair drier
tweezers

If you didn't use any of this, you did it wrong. The only time I have to cut anything is when I do a custom vinyl wrap. I have never had to cut a kit, from Bat or otherwise. Not a flame just an FYI. thumbsup

i never used soap and water and my turned out great idunno

reason being i didnt use the soap and water is because when the soap dries up it leaves a white residue on the vinyl and since i have the smoke one the residue was showing thru the vinyl

True, apply heat to the overlay. It makes it pliable and easy to remove with no residue thumbsup

You got too much soap in your mix if that is happening, also you may not have smoothed it out enough. Only need a drop of dish soap in a spray bottle.
