I've read that after getting it on you should heat the entire surface up to about 200.

Oh yea, I heat after applying, etc... no joy. The heat is for setting the vinyl. But, if it's been stretched too much the vinyl will lift. My problem areas aren't flat surfaces, it's the deep recesses. I should have used primer in those spots. I will next time.
