Bro maybe you can share how you do it?
Bro, u r really supportive, thanx.

First is to get prepared with all the right tools.
1. Rulers (Preferably steel ruler)
2. NT Cutter
3. Squegey/Plastic card
4. Hot Gun/Hair dryer
5. Wrench

Preferably you cut the whole sticker to the closest dimension of your hood first, to save the balance if any. Then starting on the laminating, get the right wrench size to detach yur hood . Working on just the hood would ne much easier. Make sure the surface of yur hood clean from and dust or particles.
Place yur hood on anything stable to work on. Peel off about 6 inches only at the corner of the sticker for starting point of laminating and also to get the right adjustment. When peeling, fold the back paper like a triangle.
Place it right and press on the corner the with a squegey or a plastic card (credit card). Here, you start doing the slanting push with the card to smoothen the lamination. Go bit by bit, do not rush the pushing as it might creates air bubbles.
Then when there's any shaping of curves required during the lamination, prepare the hot gun or yur hair dry with the medium heat to aim at the starting point of shape. Start pushing as you warm up the sticker where it stretch according to the shape. This would be a very tedious job, so do it slowly and make sure the heat is even on the area.

So, when lamination is done on the top surface, do not cut the extra just yet. At edges is the best finale, point yur dryer to slowly melt and starts stretching downwards until the edge of the side was completely formed. If you are good at the stretching, you can also stretch till the edge of yur hood do the cutting. But if worry, don't attempt, ok.
When every edge was wrapped, use the NT cutter to cut the balance parallel with the hood edge as the guideline.
Jobs done, double check on the surface for air bubbles, if there're. Just use the tip of the shape NT cutter to puncture those bubbles then press on it.
Now, it's time to send it for gloss paint spraying. the more layers of gloss spray will gives more shinning and depth effect to the 3D design. But of coz' it'll cost more. It's the most important part of it for protection, durability, lastness and you can even polish on it.

So, is it too hard to handle or simply my instruct was not clear enough.
It would be better if try it practical on something else with a small portion.

Shoot me again with any more queries or doubts. Thanx.:shades_smile:
