Hi, Just installed a DrawTite hitch on my 2007 GXP. Question I have is what have others used to cut the back facia? The instructions say
to cut a 2 in corner off each side. Is there a Video showing how others have done this? Just don't want to make a mistake doing this..
Any help would be much appreciated.

The Reese/Draw-Tight *does* require a lttle bit of cutting to fit (I have one on mine). The cut is only a little bit off the very inside lower rear corners of the grey panel (cannot be seen unless under the car) to avoid hitting the down arms of the hitch.

I used a cheap oscillating multi-purpose saw from Harbor Freight (Like this from HomeDepot: www.homedepot.com/p/Professional-Woodworker-Oscillating-Multifunction-Tool-46665/). But you could use a dremel, or a sharp Stanley knife, or even a small hacksaw. It's not too tough. I advise using masking tape to mark the edge of the line first.
