CF film installation

hi everyone!

I saw Canadian Tires selling some CF sticky film for $20
I am planning to cover my Civic Coupe side mirrors with this product.
question is the surface is curve and the instruction says you have to use a heat gun or hair dryer to apply heat to the film in order to apply it to a curvy surface.
anyone have experience doing this before?

thanks in advance.

I'd suggest not to buy cf from canadian tire.. if you want good quality ones give me a pm, I know a guy who has some for a good price. But yeah materials aside, with a heat gun as long as you don't stretch it while applying it should be easy, I've covered a lot of things with that wrap.
Btw if you plan to buy it from canadian tire make sure it says for outdoor use or something.. 3m di noc would be best. Anything else is usually for interior and wouldn't last long if you put it outside.
