I did a counter 2 weeks ago and I am very happy with this product so far, I did 1 counter and backsplash 2' x 8", another counter 2" x 6", a small counter 2 x 2 and a table top 2x 2, I just had enough left for small touch ups, I can see if you had 50 sq " of counter top it might not be enough thats maybe where you could go wrong by trying to stretch it, it came out beautiful, its very shiny as its cures but it diminishes just a bit, but I liked the shine so I rubbed in some lemon oil, looks fantastic, there is no way that it looks painted , I strecthed the process over 3 days but it could have been done in 2 days working just a few hours each day, I used a lot of tarps and masking tape and I have a dry vac, a must to clean up
I'll preface this early review with the fact that I haven't actually installed the seat yet, but will update after I put it into use later this week. As for the reason for purchase of the Maxi Cosi Pria 70, aside from wanting a well reviewed, high quality convertible car seat, I also needed one that specifically fit rear-facing in an 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I'm tall (6'5") and my wife is tall (5'9") so to comfortably ride in the front seat, the seats need to be pushed back significantly. I ran into an issue with this for our infant car seat and we ended up getting a Chicco Keyfit that worked perfectly in the middle seat (Jeep and Chicco allow you to latch on to the inside hooks on the outside seats. Knowing the convertible seat was going to be a huge issue while rear facing, I did a ton of research and found a site that ranked the top car seats by "space grade". The Maxi Cosi Pria, Chicco Next Fit, Britax Mathon and Boulevard and Graco Size4Me, were some of the top performers. The Maxi Cosi was the clubhouse leader though with 2.5 inches more room than the Britax Boulevard. Couple that with a great sale price on Amazon with the always reliable Prime shipping and returns and we had a winner.
The Haynes manual is great to have for guidance on making car repairs. Wish they would do a better job with their pictures though. Sometimes it's hard to see what they're trying to show. These days, higher resolution color pictures would be a big improvement but the manual is definitely good to have regardless.
