    Stone chip season again

    Hey guys, I'm curious how you all handle this. It gets pretty bad around here, the weather is good enough to break out the car come april, but the roads are covered in sand and small rocks through the end June some years.

    What is the best protection against chipping? Is a good layer of way the best I can do or is there something else. I thought I heard once about some kind of spray on (invisible) car bra. Anyone else ever hear of it ???

    I'm going to move this to the detailing section. You'll get more specific answers in there. I know the vette guys use cleartastic with some success. I usually just try to dodge them and cuss a lot.

    i bought 3m clear bra and put it on my 08 trailblazer ss. It works great! its a bitch to install it around curves and such though. It goes on just like window tint and its hard to tell its even there. you can order it in any length and width (but its not cheap) i think i payed like $150 for a 12" wide x 14' strip. i put 7 ft or so down both sides of the truck but like i said above cutting around the doors and going around the bends of the body line was a pain. you can buy kits pre cut for any car if you look around though. lol

    i mean waxing will definately help but if you want real coverage and protection then go the 3m way, dont have any experience with it but its a protective covering so it will save the car from small stones

    that stuff sounds interesting...not sure how its going to look, and it sounds like an SOB of a job to put on, but its an interesting idea.
