Any pro tips on the actual installation process? I've never done it, so I'm gonna test with my side mirrors, but that's a big surface area and its almost the top of the car so it's awkward. And do you happen to know the measurements for the roof? I haven't even measured it yet, still reading up on it all

Look up some videos on youtube. It will answer a lot of your questions. Get a friend to help you and set up planks on milk crates either side of the car to get at a better working level. Use squeegees with the soft side of velcro stuck on the edge. Make a template out of paper to go around the antenna. Once you get it perfect, trace it onto the paper side of the vinyl and cut it out with an exacto. Make sure you get it centered and allow enough room to handle the vinyl around the edges. Other than that, work from the middle out and take your time. If you get a crease or bubble just lift the vinyl, warm it with a hairdryer and the crease will go away.
