Matte Black Trim Wrap Discoloration

I finished my trim in matte black. Looks pretty good, not 100%, but I'm happy with it. However, I noticed it appears to be a bit discolored; I assume from stretching it during the application. Does anyone know if this can be corrected. It looks like where I stretched it, it is a little lighter, which gives it an uneven appearance, almost like a tortoise shell appearance. Has anyone else experience this? Can anything be done about it? Sorry, I took a few pics, but the discoloration doesn't show up in the pics. Thanks.

Take it off and apply a new one. Only way you can fix vinyl

^+1 if you are gonna remove it I would remove it soon. The tack likes to stick on ur trim and takes hours to get off.

Thanks Rich. I'm actually okay with it now. I used some trim shine on it and it evened out the color. Now I'm waiting on my matte black grills to arrive!
