Well my anthracite wrap came today soon thinking of giving it a go tonight but got a question,

Do I have to go to my dads and route through his shed for a heat gun or are there any alternatives?

Thanks in advance ;)

Hair dryer is better to use buddy.

I wrapped my whole car with a dryer as I found it better than the heat gun

But one advise I will give is try not to use the dryer too much only on really awkward parts which the wrap can't naturally wrap around.

That's also good thigh if it for first time gives you chances to mess up as the v strip is hardest I think boot strip is easy I'd start with interior door handles something small and easier to start off on and find out about heating it up and bending them round etc
