I find that it is too much pre-stretched I carefully remove some of the stretch with a heat gun and a frame to hold it. You'd need to experiment some. It has to have a little stretch left to shrink.

Is a hot air supply suitable for applying the film, or did you use their heating iron?  I'm guessing a bit of pressure to adhere the film is necessary?
