Nice job Joe! Could you post a pic of the completed job, that is, with the full B pillar covered?

Been there, done that. Ran my car for more than a week with one side done.

You can also use water on the adhesive side to stick the vinyl. Spray a little, just a fine layer.

Bubbles ? Puncture the bubble & smoothen the vinyl.

I think it will, never tried though, but my experience while sticking the vinyl other day was smooth, if you slightly stretch the vinyl and apply a pressure with your thumb or may be spoon is preferable, you will stick the vinyl with no bubbles or wrinkles. this work requires a little patience.

Yes, water on the adhesive side. Just like you do for the sun-film. Tried with water for one door, and it has worked .. basically an experiment to see for myself what I had been told.

The sheet itself is water proof.
