I cut strips of the vinyl about half inch longer on each side and half inch wider top and bottom. I think the thicker bottom chrome trim was roughly 2 inches wide and the top thinner trim just over an inch. Straight pieces are really easy to apply just pull the backing paper off apply to the chrome and just run your finger down the vinyl to smooth out any air bubbles. The back of the vinyl actually has little grooves cut into it so you are able to work any bubbles out to the edge. Using the plastic squeegee just work the material into the groove between the rubber and the chrome then carefully cut off excess with an exacto knife. In the front and rear corners where the trim bends you will see a seam in the moulding from the factory on the bottom edge. I measured from that seam to the back edge of the corner trim and used that measurement to put another seam on the upper part of the moulding. Basically you will cut a square for the corner. Heat it with a hair dryer to soften the material and work it into the corner. Trim excess and your good to go. Kinda hard to visualize but I can post a pic when I get home later today.
