    Hi all, this image is of one of the top corners of my bonnet/hood up near the front window screen.

    My question is how would all you wrappers deal with this edge?

    As shown in the image, I tested this by simply holding over each side but this leaves it as pictured (part has lifted up) which is no good.

    So how would you all deal with this? Heat the vinyl and stretch it?

    All help will be much appreciated indeed,

    Kind regards,

    Ryan

    assuming your using 3m products. Use 3m primer for your edges. Its called "primer" but its actually additional glue. It doesn't work with all makes of vinyl. And you also need to post heat all work when finished to exhaust memory out of vinyl

    Thanks for the reply although thats not exactly what I mean.

    If you ignore the part that has lifted, how would you deal with this corner so the entire bonnet / hood is covered and sealed?

    thanks,
