Hey, sorry for the late response, but for my bumper i actually had to do it in 3 separate pieces since i didnt have enough wrap lefted over. I ended up using the scraps that i cut off from other parts of the car. But for that area, what i did was laid everything down till i got to the top, which bunched up for me too, but i had a friend heat it up for me while i pulled and flatten it with the squeegee. Post heated afterwards to make sure it wasnt gonna lift since that area required alot of stretching. Sorry in advance if this doesnt help out

No that's perfect! Do you have any close-ups of the rear bumper?

Not at the moment, i can get some for you later. Just remember, you can use heat to your advantage. Vinyl wrap is very forgiving, itll work with you, just dont overdue the heat and stretch. Youll either burn a hole thru or cause discoloration in the vinyl
