I've read that a good sealant works well to keep roof vinyl shiny and more resistant to dirt than straight liquid/spray wax.

Thanks!

After thinking about it more, I'd start from the front and work my way backwards. I also would only peel away what I need to stick to the roof as opposed to the entire sheet. I think this would have decreased the amount of creases and bubbles that appeared.

I've added this to the OP.

Still there. I'm getting the heat gun from @finaldrive tonight and will have to try it in them. If that doesn't work, I'll just pop em.

Poke them with the pointy end of the razor then hit it with the heat gun, that helped me tons with shrinking the bubbles.
