I used tape to line it up and two pairs of hands. Once you frame it correctly peel just the ends off and start at one corner...get that side flush while making sure the rear has not moved. Stick down the other side and the push it down firmly.

The main trick is to test fit with someone to make sure it's even and also sitting down right. The first time I eye balled it and got one side right but the other too high. I could have used a hair dryer to try and move it but it was too late the next day.

Make sure to also remove wax or film on that truck. Mine was also slick so it popped off way too easily when I removed it. The surfaced should be prepped with alcohol to clean so you get a good stick.

For 100$ this is a great way to save money.

I'm glad to see that you got it straightened out! I need to reposition mine too and like you said, you can't beat it for 100 bucks!

Good job! Looks just like the dealer did it! I'm thinking about putting a black one on my white 300S has anyone done this and have pics or have opinions on this?

I haven't seen it done before. You would be the first if you did it.

I was going to order one of these today but whats the verdict on the trunk pop function? I've read it still works after the install for some people and for some it doesnt.

Is that the case? I don't want to loose this function. Could I test it some how before ordering by putting some type of weight on my trunk?
