Edge Prep/Probond is a solvent. If you put it on a before install it is going to dissipate for lack of a better term. Use it right before you press the area down.  Just let it dry for a few sec and it will stick.

I normally clean the back side of the hood with 99% alcohol or adhesive remover.  I install the hood then flush the film that will wrap around to the back side of the hood with my Tac solution (8oz 99% alcohol and the rest distilled water).  After that,  I blow dry with compressed air.  Let air dry while installing more Xpel.  Then come back with the heat gun,  warm the film that will wrap and wrap away.  Never a problem with the Xpel sticking while using this system.

You shouldn't need either of those. Just a little heat underneath to get the film to grab and tack should do the trick. I've done several of those without needing any type of adhesive promoter. It's not necessary.
