For those who is planning to do this DIY, I suggest you do 2 -3 pieces per day. This will give you hands and brain a rest and not to rush it, cuz rushing will end up sloppy

on your second step

"2. Clean the trims, let it dry and apply the 3M adhesive....Apply 2-3 layers of the adhesive."

what do you mean by "clean the trims"? just like wipe them down?

You should clean the surface with alcohol.
