Vinyl Installation is pretty simple. I used blue painters tape to place it at the center of the car from nose to tail. They came out perfect. I also used a heat gun to help the vinyl get the shape of the car better and aids in sticking better you just have to be gentle and take your time.

so then how dose it stick, once you got it where u want it
Squeegee it out once you have it were you want it. The soapy solution just prevents it from sticking to give you time. Not sure what vinyl you have, but have had some difficulty with soapy solutions. If your instructions say use it go ahead, but if it calls for vinyl application fluid, I'd suggest getting it.

LOL, vinals..
Cheaper than paint, and lasts long enough to be worth the savings. Vinyls last like up to 8 years or something now, if taken care of.

You also need one of those smoother tools, and trust me, buy one that is designed for vinyl applications... a lot less of a headache in the end, other tools that you think might work, well... they don't. :p
