A bunch went away when I was washing the car. I'm certain that if I left it in the sun for a whole day, the rest would settle down.

I`m doing mine next weekend... I`m awaiting for everything in the mail

how about wetting the roof before positioning then remove the water with the squeegee like a window tint?

Would`ve that worked?

3M doesn't recommend using water.


Another tip is to not press too hard. I can see a bunch of scratches from where I just mashed the vinyl into the roof. It doesn't take that much pressure to adhere it to the roof.
