    3M plastic sheeting for the nose

    Has anyone tried this stuff. Its a thin clear plastic film that is placed on the front of the car to protect from rock chips. The pieces are cut to the parts of the vehicle. Anyone have this on their vehicle and are you pleased? Does it work? Any drawbacks????

    I have the full kit offered by InvincaShield on my 2000 SS. It's worth every penny, and shows well. I had mine professionally installed, and while not cheap, I'm extremely happy with the results.

    Downside: If you have paint that already has stone chips in it, get it fixed and start with a smooth surface.

    Here's who you wanna get it from. They're super folks. They even custom made a set of ScotchCal circles to put over the bow tie emblems on the wheels for me.

    I've seen it on a friends Vette and on another's Mini Cooper. Looks good although if you have a light colored car - make sure it's wiped down with a light colored (preferably lint free) cloth first or the lint will show through and make it look bad. Definitely saves the paint but rocks will still "chip" this stuff too.

    I have the invinca-Shield, like the others, on my '04 4Runner. It has taken alot of abuse and still shows pretty decent. The kits are expensive, and this stuff can stain from bugs if you let splatters go unattended, but it is nice knowing the damage is on the sheild, not on the paint. Even after I tell people its on there, I have to point out the seams to them before they 'see' that I have it on there. I will be getting it on my SS when it comes time to repaint the nose.

    I always use steel wool and window cleaner. Steel wool will not hurt glass windshields, or any other windows.
    But DO NOT use it on Any Mirrors! They are made of plastic and will scratch really bad.
