How long does the whole process take? I live outside of Philly so you guys are about a good 2-2.5 hrs from me. Is this something I can wait around for a few hours or do you need it for a few days? I need something... I lready have a very small little chip in the hood on my LBB M2..

That's the difference between using a pattern and not wanting to remove trim and a custom job.

Yep, I went back and they did the fenders and front bumper again, this time with a custom cut. No more seams all over the place looks much better. Standard xpel cut is fine but if you don't want all those seams you'll need to ask for some extra custom work.
