Well I cut the piece a bit larger than the fuel door. Cleaned the surface well, used Invisible Glass wipes, worked well.

Peeled the wax paper off the cf sticker, layer it sticky side up. Carefully posisitioned the door on top and basically worked the sticker down from the center out.

The rounded edges were the most difficult. I did use a heat gun to finess it, being careful not to scortch the product. Again used the heat gun on the back side where the sticker was folded over to make it stick well and basically seal it on. Im doing some pieces on my old Hondas flip up headlights. I'll post up some pics of those too.
