Just went out to the garage to see how it fit this morning, I lost count on how many layers of resin have been done. Just trying to get a nice even coat. Its drying right now and then its time to sand and install.

They are custom made by a company that is trying to patent the product right now, they make several versions to accommodate for if you have a case on your phone or something.
