    We wrapped this van 8 months ago and now it has bubbles in the grooves. Any tricks to fix this problem without redoing the whole panel ???

    That's probably the most common install mistake area on vans (not feeding/heating). You'll have to trim it off above the recess and lay in a new piece with an overlap. Trimming on the van takes an experienced hand. That's the "without re-wrapping whole panel" solution.

    What advice do you have to do this properly to avoid this? I have a van that we will be doing soon that is exactly like the one the OP is asking about and id like to avoid this happening.
    Any advice is helpful :thumb:
     
  4. 3M Primer 94 the area first. Heat and tuck

    Common mistake that most wrap shops deal with.
    we apply primer then avoid heating and stretching. (ROLL IN)

    Heat it and work it in when applying.

    Don't use primer unless your using 3M wrap film...
