He said he will just do the shop's usual custom install using the wide rolls of the film but not make the seam in bridge between the two front grills. This is slated for next week. Since I have already invested time and money with this installer, I might as well give him and his shop a chance to redeem themselves. In case I am still not happy with the result, I will look for another installer who uses the Xpel bumper kit.
At least they're willing to redo it . Using bulk is probably the best option (or using a custom laser cut) to get best coverage.
I can take a few detail pictures of mine when I get back on the weekend and send them to you as a reference.

There are a few pics from the install in another thread at
