Lol, it was quite a job. Because the vinyl is so thick, its quite hard to get it into place. This is how i did it:
I ordered a sheet of a4 self adhensive carbon style vinyl of ebey for about 3€.
Once it arived i removed half of it from its paper and positoned it above the vega. Then i put just a small bit of it on the vega, and made shure there were no bubbles by going over it with my fingers. Then i slowly put some more on and kept rubbing it on with my fingers. As soon as you get any bubbles, peel it back again, or youl f it up...
When you come to the middle of the sheet, remove al of the paper an rub it on.
When its tight and nice, get an knife, go along the bezel of the back, so there is a visable line.
Now remove the vinyl again, and paste it back on the paper it came on. Now cut along the line with a pair of scissors.
Now past the vinyl back on the vega like above with the rubbing style.
