#Wrap tips from Russell Voigt
"One of the most important things for installers is to learn to feed the vinyl into to channels rather than stretching it in. Also if you do need to do stretching of the vinyl stretch a larger area to conform the vinyl instead of working up to the contour and then having to stretch a small distance. When you stretch the vinyl you are thinning out the adhesive and could have failure in that are. "
