Do you have any "stupid juice?" It helps for placement and less air bubbles. If you do have an air bubble you can't get rid of use a pin to pop it and then squeegee it out

Vinyl Wrap my results:

If you are too clutzy to paint, you will never ever succeed with this stuff. Mine started out good but got progressivly worse, till the last 1/4 of tube was a mass of bubbles and wringles. They didn't send their promised 'free' squeegee, but I had a teflon one. Didn't help.

So the moral of this story is don't spend $30, and that was the cheapest, or u will probably end up with a $30 wad of stickey plastic like me. A can of Brandon Blue spray paint only costs $5, but you gotta wait a month for it to dry.....Or just polish the tube using scotchbrite and wd-40, worked good on my last scope. Anger, enjoy !!!
