Measure the trim as best you can leaving at least a half inch excess on each side of what you want to wrap, ideally more like an inch just in case. You can do this on the car in most cases, just make sure to account for any curvature or irregularities that you might run in to.
Once you have measured each piece you want to wrap, you can figure out how much material you need to order. It typically comes in a 24" roll, so you'll need to figure out how many feet you need from that 24" roll. You can find the stuff all over the internet, including eBay. Some people cover the trim directly on the car by just laying it over what they want to cover and trimming off the excess, but I personally think that it is necessary to wrap the trim around the backside on each edge so that it can't possibly peel off on a hot summer day.
Once you've cut all the pieces you need, start by removing the backing paper of the piece you want to work with, and lay it adhesive side up on a workbench or table. Then take the trim piece and carefully lay it down on top of the trim to get the initial alignment.
The adhesive is pretty forgiving, and can be pulled off and reapplied rather easily if you mess up. Once you've got the initial alignment done, you can start working it around the rest of the flat surfaces until you get to the corners.
Anytime you need to wrap around a corner or irregularity, you'll need to break out the heat gun. The vinyl responds very well to heat, so be careful and don't get it to hot because it will melt if you do. I have often been tempted to purchase a more expensive shaped stylus.

After inspecting both tires, which only have a few hundred miles on them, I can find no signs of puncture.
Lucky for me, a buddy comes down the same road a few minutes later and gives me his tube. When I get home I check both Latex tubes and they have punctures or holes. The rear has a smaller hole than the front.
The front will hardly hold enough air for me to pinpoint the leak easily. Board index Hardware Cartridges and Preamps. Any cartridge better for inner groove distortion?
