It's been a while so I'm not sure I remember but I'm thinking it's 15% maybe 5% you can't see in unless there is a light in the car or some sort of light is get g through I love it it really makes the xj look good

by the looks of how you did it, it looks like your gonna need to bondo it to get a smooth look back. like i said before id just beline it again

it wont be smooth regardless because it had relife cuts and you will feel/see them still. trim it all the way around and put door edge trimming around it, that will be smooth. thats also why i didnt do any trimming on my rear wells, just hammered them up and they folded in just like everyone elses

and by wheel well do you mean the rubber wheel well? those things are garbage. they hold more moisture/mud/dirt behind them causing your jeep to possibly rust out faster than it would without them. mine have been gone since the day i got my jeep over 3 years ago. cleaned the little rust i found behind them and i havent had an issue since.

It's pretty smooth now it's just the missing paint you see I hit it really light I was surprised too at how smooth it already is but I'm just tired of bed liner
