I've done my outside hash marks and inside dash kit in vinyl. I'm assuming you're talking about the LeMans style stripes?
Just make sure the car is CLEAN. No Wax, at least on that area. Plenty of water and a tiny bit of soap in the mixture. For a full sized spray bottle maybe 4 drops of soap. Baby shampoo works or I used dish soap.
The wetter the piece is, the more workable it will be, but the longer it will take to dry. With the big piece you want it pretty wet on the sticky side/backing so you can work the air bubbles out with the squeegee.
Make sure to wrap the squeegee in a microfiber cloth so you don't scratch/scar up the vinyl on accident.
Lining things up properly and patience will be key.
