When warmed the material is very pliable and can be stretched 50%. The following show the pliability

First the stock chrome grill surround:

The bumper cover was removed and the chrome surround removed completely and brought to a workbench. A single sheet was used and the piece was completely wrapped - including the outside perimeter that is mainly covered by the bumper cover once installed.

Closeup of the lower corner - the one with the most stretch.

The grill surround was laid on a work bench and the sheet laid on top of it. The material was heated and slowly stretched down to the back of the material. In the above photo the material would be applied to the front surface and pressed into the photo. Hope that makes sense. Let me know if you have any other questions or need some clarification on anything.
