I suppose practice makes perfect, but the stuff is expensive to buy. I could watch some videos on YouTube though.
We started wrapping my Vee, and found, while working in the smaller pieces that a hair dryer does not have enough heat. You need a heat gun and a plastic scrapper. We're using Oracal 975 Carbon Fibre Wrap Cast Vinyl and it's made to be repositionable. So you can take it on and off. We should be doing some more pieces this week, so I'll post some pics.
