Just use heat and work fast and you'll be good.

My latest. Hopefully it looks good on the car. You can't really tell what I did, so I added a close up.

Deleted the badge/pillar.





I think I need to get a wrx badge and slap a sticker on that too.

It looks a little plain with nothing.

the fast thing is important. after you heat it once it seems to harden and then never get as flexible again. Do the large areas, then pick a corner, add heat, and get it pulled over the curve before it cools.

Those of you who installed Di-noc inside of engine bay - it will eventually lift due to prolonged exposure to the heat. That's what happened at least on my car.

Not very hard to do corners, just keep working with it. You heat it up with a hair dryer then pull over the corner and smooth out the underneath.

I think that's what I did wrong. I cut my pieces too small so I couldn't stretch much.

It's a lot easier if you use a piece that's a decent amount bigger than the piece you're wrapping and then cut it to size.

Notes:
3M 1080 melts extremely quickly with a heat gun. I'd go so far as to say just use a hair drier for small pieces that need forming.
Gotta use a spatula of some sort to get in all the nooks crannies. DO NOT USE A FINGER NAIL!!! (Pinpoint pressure FTL will scratch the surface)
I suck at wrapping x-mas presents but this turned out decent
