Help with Vinyl Striping

So, I just did a very sh***y job on hood striping, and was wondering if I need to remove the whole thing and start over from scratch, or can it be fixed. The problem is that I have some stubborn bubbling, that instead of just squeeging out, decided to wrinkle up. Is there anything I can besides take it all off? Thanks.

Personally, I would start over. If you were more experienced you might enable to pull it back and use some heat to get out the wrinkles. I'm guessing you've never done this before?

Yeah, wish I could help you. That's why I paid to get my vinyl stripes on (too big of a project for me to mess up on). I have done smaller vinyl things before and have never had them wrinkle up on me. I was always able to squeegee the bubbles out. I wish you the best of luck.

Try to wet the decal and pull it off and then re wet the strip and see if it can be re used if it is badly folded I would not use it since it will be visible

Not the first time. But the second might as well count as the first right? I had absolutely no problems with the side stripes, and they came out really well. It was the easiest DYI thing I've done on my car. I got all of the bubbles out except this one that I didn't see. Then when trying to squeege it out, it just wrinkled up. I think I am going to try to peel it back, wet it, and smooth it out. I was also thinking I may just try and plastidip the hood. I'll sleep on it and figure it out tomorrow.
