    The secret is to take your time.

    Try doing it dry if you can. Wet is good if you are not confident.

    In either case, don’t take the app tape off straight away. Gives the tape a chance to settle.

    Applying it wet, don’t do on a cold surface. Doing it dry, don’t do it in direct sun light or heat.

    Remember the rule… Measure twice, fit once.

    Works for me, but drives my offsider nuts!!!
