Front end paint protection


Recommended Posts

What is everyone using/doing for paint protection on the nose? A friend of mine had his black C6 vette done with Armor Coat last year and it came out great. I went to speak with the same shop that did his vette today and walked away feeling like they have no idea what they were doing. Example: I asked them about the stripes, and they said "OHH, I Don't know, I think they have to come off." So I said ok , if I get you new Ford stripes can you put them back on? The guy said "Oh well we can find a place to put them back on." So, I ask what is everyone else using, if any, to prevent rock chips?

venture shield clear bra. the shop said Venture Shield is better quality than 3M but of course thats probably because they only use Venture Shield. they did not go over the stripes but stopped close to the edge of the stickers and then put a strip of the bra down the middle between the stripes.

I was advised to cover the stripes. I will have this done in the next few weeks after a couple rains to clear the salt off the road.

 

When you TYPE WITH CAPS ITS YELLING ON THE INTERNET, fyi.
