where did you get it? i got it from metro restyling here in MI in Sterling Heights. Their website has TONS of different vinyls at reasonable prices. They will even send samples before you decide on one.

I just did the same part on my 2009 tonight. I know it was a major pain I'm the ass but I would redo yours if I were you. You can see the creases a fair bit. Don't waste your time trying to do it in one piece. I used 2. The separate piece is on the inside of the pillar

which part are you talking about. nothing has a crease except the window sail or what ever you wanna call it. we tried it like 6 times or more, with a few pieces of wasted vinyl. because of the mirror adjuster it cannot be wrapped smoothly. the other side was a cake walk. but the extra contour from the button made it near impossible. you cant see it when the door is shut.

and ive redone it since then. no more crease, but still not perfect

Take the door trim off and remove and unplug the adjuster. Mine came out perfect

i did. are you sure your 09 is the same as my 03...

from what i can see online, yours has different contours that look like they would be easier to wrap
