How to stretch a new platform pad?

Picked up a great new OEM platform pad from another member on here. Got the old pad off and the surface all prepped, but the new pad will need to be stretched into place to really fit well. Any suggestions on how to accomplish this? Wait for a sunny day? Stick down the middle first then stretch and stick each side? Roller of some sort?

Thanks!

Edit: I found this thread which describes and shows my situation perfectly: https://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk...ad.php?t=55031

Warm day. Set pad on the hood/roof of car etc...something that get hot.
Work from inside out.
Extra hands help too.
Take your time.

Don't ask why I know this

OK will do. This pad does not have the adhesive backing so that will add another layer of complexity. Hopefully I get a warm day soon...

Blue tape out the perimeter if a 3M spray adhesive in order.
Ideally you would only want to spray the mat but if you can shoot the platform as well you'll better luck avoiding lift while the Caulk type adhesive sets up
