    Thats probably ok for an el cheapo DIY kit. There's no way I would do a 3 piece install like that. Do it with 1 piece of vinyl.

    why do you need a template?
    just measure overall width and height and print a big square piece and use knifeless tape

    Because i have the Mossy oak Obsession on a roll.its the original material from them. and a template i could just cut the arch of the flare right from the material and apply.. I havent ventured to much in to specialty wraps like fender flares yet. only been simple things for me .Ive only been doing this for 2 yrs and slowly teaching my self new things and flares is new for me.

    Its much less frustrating to use a big square and trim. Don't over think it.

    Humm, I would have never thought to use Mutoh wave technology to join 2 print panels.

    I'd wrap in as far as possible with just a thin gap (1/8 or so) on the inside edge of the flare.

    Depends on how deep you want to go in the flares, but you can go all the way in there. Clean them very well, and I'd clean the back side of them as well where the black wheel tubs meet up with them. Or even better, take off the black tubs inside the wheel wells. Dirt always get in between there and as you're pulling the vinyl in, it will come loose and get all over the back of the vinyl if you're not careful. Print a big square, put it on there, make a half circle cut without cutting the tire. Make sure to leave your selfplenty enough to go on the inside of the flares. Use a heat gun, get the material warm, and leech the material into the fender wells. You will be taking material from the middle areas and pushing the material into the inside of the flares. Then make some relief cuts to allow the material to be pushed into the flares. Remember that the relief cuts will probably split some, so don't make them to big. Wrap the inside of the flare, and I'd wrap it back on top of the inside of the flare for complete coverage. You could then even go a step further if you wanted to, and seal them on the back side with some edge seal tape.

    Because this particular print is so busy it might be even easier for you to simply do an inlay on the flat inner of the wheel well and come back with a clean line of knifless tape on top when you start laying the fender. Definitely 1 piece the fender itself though. That video is a little ridiculous IMO.

    If a wrap class is out of the question, I would order Justin Pate's DVD set of wrap instruction and watch it 3 times while making notes. Helped me a great deal

    Yep, I second Justin Pate's DVD's, although I attended his 2010 wrap class in Dallas, I do have his videos to reference to because I can't remember all his tricks and techniques. He is a great instructor.
