my opinion only , the warranty has to end on paper at some point, so no matter if its a day over or a month over its still out of warranty.
the rest is up to rhg to make a contribution or not, i guess you will find out how much they value your custom.
good luck

centre hinge initially and if the design allows hinge between the centre and the two outer vertical edges, so you now have three hinges.simply cut vertically through the backing & application paper half way between your hinges,giving you six flaps.hope you understand its much easier if its windy...

whatever you feel more comfortable with, i would say that by removing the window the finish will be better overall. not sure how the hinges are held on but be careful because things can go wrong when taking vehicles apart.you will have to consider extra time in cutting around hinge or extra time rem...

Thanks the design is straight across the side panels and doesn`t cross the corners so should be ok , the reason for using the cast was the textured section at the bottom of the recess doesn`t lend itself to good adhesion if using a thicker material
