I did my own and it was very hard.
Starting in the middle and working your way out is the best way. But it's not a easy job. Some vinyl is a lot easier to lay then others. Carbon is thicker and a lot harder normal vinyl is easier. Good luck. I would try with other pieces before had just so you understand how the vinyl shrinks and lays.
