Difficult too. The area around the handbrake will be hard to get the vinyl in to. You may end up with joins. To do the job right you'd want to strip out the parts and wrap vinyl around the back of the edges to prevent edges lifting. If you are going to strip then you have two other alternatives. 1 is to repaint properly, results can be spectacular. The other option is water dip transfer but you will need a lot of prep to get a really good finish.
It's take 17 years to get to it's current state. If the $185 paint job lasts another 5 years or so ................ I'd get the whole lot painted.
