Glad you got it fixed.
It's nice that the "new" pattern makes it easier for the installer to install but if coverage sucks, what is the point of that anyway? If you really wanted an easy to install clear bra, you'd just do it yourself rather than pay a "professional" to do it.
The real skill in clear bra installation is in the custom installs, that's where the installer's true skills can shine. Taking a flat piece of film and carving it into an exact fit is a work of art. It's hard to make even lines, rounded corners, wrapped edges so it is totally invisible to the eye.
I guess it's fortunate California has a lot of great installers. Maybe not so good for those in other areas.
