    floiac film is meant to be good...but you need to heat it slightly to take it off appaerently as it could damage the paint work. I want some thing like this to cover my car up in between shows.

    if you wanna protect your car on the way to shows just by a large roll of marsking tape, thats what all the concourse boys use.

    might have to get some of that foliac stuff and see how it goes do one side and leave it a week to see what happens to it (if anything).

    A local tinting place is going to be doing this shortly, but problem lies as to put it on proporley they have to get templates and as templates wont cover aftermarket/custom bumpers a lot of placeswont do it. and fitted wrong will make it look shite.

    re: Paint Protection Film

    Does the protection film cause any problems with the paintwork, i.e. cause it to go dull?
