The wraps are made to be taken off and on during application and the adhesive is set by heat. Because the vinyl is also able to be stretched, applications over things like helmets are totally possible, although extremely time consuming and aggravating.

If I have enough Carbon Fibre left over, I'll cover and old helmet for you FFs to show you how its done.
The adhesive sticks just fine w/o heat, the heat is more just to shrink around corners (or stretch as the case may be).
