Thanks! you get the wrap and as u pull it away from the backing u spray it with water in a spray bottle, u gotta pull it from the backing super slow. Once the backing is off mist the whole thing with water, mist the back of the tank, apply then squeegie out the air bubbles, I used a bondo spreader to remove bubbles.

I used some black contact paper. It already has a light adhesive on it.
