It was either that or have a seam, I didn’t want a seam. They don’t make an Xpel sheet large enough. I would rather have 1/8” exposed over having a large seam or be forced to add a stripe to try to hide the seam.I'm sorry to say, but that's not a top-notch installation. The areas with a high probability of chipping are left uncovered; hood edges and accessible bumper edges should be folded.
He wrapped in some places, however didn’t recommend wrapping around the hood on the side edges as he said with the design of the hood, it would likely lift.
I know little to nothing about it, I just know I didn’t want a seam and I am happy with it.
