It is 3m Schotchcal film and is clear and is applied to headlights, mirror caps, fenders, hoods etc etc to protect them from rock/abrasion damage. I am thinking of getting it appied to my hood, mirrors, and headlights. Here's some links..

Interesting, if I ever fix mine right I might look into that.

At the moment both of mine look like shit from accidents, hit and runs, and kids who throw rocks.

That stuff seems obsessive compulsive to me.

I'll just wax it once a year.

What does wax do against sand abrasion and stone hits?.... NOTHING

I could see the point if you had a high dollar paint job, or a car you kept garaged and drove rarely.
When I didnt drive mine for a few months less then 10 miles from the house windshield gets busted

What if you had a leased car where they look for every excuse to suck your security deposit dry? Or if it's a new car you want to keep nice for along time or incase to want to trade it in or sell pvt'ly? My car will be getting a re-paint this spring and a full kit from one of these places, I'm tired of stuck on bugs and stone chips all over the front of my car.

I wish I had them put it on the front edge of my hood when I got my new truck.

all I can say is lease in the winter and bring it back for trade in at night....
and to be sure to get a condition report in hand before leaving

I wager you could go somewhere that sells contact paper and buy some clear stuff for that purpose -- way cheaper than they are selling this other stuff.

I have thought about having bedliner applied to the front of my truck.

I've seen it on several cars. Looks absolutely great. Almost impossible to tell it's there. Thinking of having it done myself on my car.

I owned the company called Lamin-x and sold off. Check it out at www.lamin-x.com. The way this was being made was something different and works way better than the other stuff!
