PPF proper installation question - not wrapped around edges is normal?

Not sure this helps, but go look at the web site (and linked You Tube videos) of my local preferred expert Joe at OCDetailing:

and see how you do wraps right. No visible edges or seams.

For example, see:


This is not correct. As posted above, unless you remove panels, you will always see edges. Other than panels that open, like doors and hood. A good installer will minimize the edges with a custom cut; but you’ll still see them.

I have a quote to do a xpel stealth for $4500. I also was quoted $7000. You can probably guess which one is doing full custom and which one is using a plotter. I just wonder if I could live with the visible edges. $2500 is a big difference.

I've got the pre-cut and you cannot see the difference from a couple of feet away. You have to run a finger to find the edge at arm length distance. On close examination you can see it. As I drive all highway, I'd rather save the money and get it redone after five years as road debris ultimately takes its toll.
