If you drop it off first thing in the morning, I'd expect it not to be ready until toward the end of the day -- not because it actually takes that long, but because they'll have other cars to do that day too, so it'd be luck of the draw. If they want it first thing AND overnight, I dunno. But I could maybe see it depending on how many qualified installers they have vs cars coming in for clear bra.

At the end of the day, I'd say that if you don't trust them with your car, don't let them do the install. And if you do trust them with your car, then you should trust them with it overnight. Ferris Bueller's Day Off didn't take place at night, after all.

(On a more serious note, if you're really worried, just take a picture of your odometer when you drop it off. If it's got more than 1 extra mile when you get it back, ask why.)
