You bet. Basically it's a clear film that goes over certain parts of your car like the bumper and hood which can be prone to rock chips. The film is made by a company called Xpel. The reason why I chose this brand is because they have a film that is self healing (see video below.)

This is something that a professional installer will need to do, if you try it yourself and mess up, you'll be out quite a bit of money.


There is another product out the made by 3M call Paint Defender which you can probably try yourself because it's a spray which would be easier to apply.

Nice detail job, I like the dark rims compared to the silver on mine.

MK,

Thanks a lot for the info. The paint defender seems to be what I want. Not sold in Canada though which is weird.

Nice MK. Is this all wired directly into the factory harness?
