LOL! Haha, looks amazing bro, you may be sure of everyone turning their back to look at your car. Have fun riding this, I remember when my buddy from DSRLeasing did totally "lame" modifications to his car when we were in college, those weird looks on people faces are priceless.

Alright, so I tried to apply carbon fiber vinyl to my gas tank cover. Does anyone have any tips or tricks on how to keep the bubbles from forming? I know about applying heat, etc....but I just couldnt get it as smooth as I wanted.

Heat will allow you to stretch it, just don’t stretch too far. Start in the center and apply it while pushing the air out to the sides. You can buy a felt lined tool for this also.
Watch YouTube videos!

yup, been there done all that. I have all the tools and watched too many videos lol. I was more looking for a technique. I guess practice makes "better" in this case.
