Default Overnight?

I'm trying to get a clear bra (partial hood, bumper, plus) and I'm being told they need my car overnight. They want me to bring it in the morning and was told I can watch and leave it overnight for observation.

I really rather not leave my new car anywhere other than my garage. Please share your installation stories.

It just takes a while. You should ask if you can pick it up by the end of the day.

just tell them your not comfortable with leaving your car overnight and that you would bring it in for 2 days instead of 1 if they need more time to work on it

If its a reputable and legit shop, Im sure you wont have any problems. But it comes down to your personal preference

I went with a DIY kit from 3M called Paint Defender. It takes 10 mins to set up and about 10-15 mins to spray on. 2 hours to dry to the touch and about 2-4 hours in direct sunlight to cure. It is not bad but since its my first time using it, I will put a thicker coating next time. It last for about a year than you have to re-spray it. The bottle seems to still have a lot left so I could imagine it would last 3, maybe 4 applications.
