Basically if you have a chip down to the primer or metal, it's going to stand out, you cover it up with a paint then it's not going to be noticeable in a pix most of the time or to the casual person looking over your car. Once you know it's there or somebody that is looking for it they are going to see it most of the time.
Only way around that is primary and paint to fill in the chip and it has to be perfectly smooth with the existing paint. That's pretty unrealistic with a bottle of paint and a brush no matter how good you get at it.
Having said that, it's going to happen to a car if you drive it and that's what we bought these for.
On a side note, I had a Lotus and the come with Start Shields. They are a clear plastic that you apply over the paint. I want to find something like that for my LS.
I use the concept on all my mountain bikes. So I ride them and when I'm ready to sell them I pull the plastic clear coat off and they look like new.
For the Lotus you have this on the hood, and quarter panels. Anybody know of a kit for the Mustangs?
On my hood the guy that installed mine cut around the stripes so they are not covered.frosty said:Having a company come install the 3M ScotchGuard Tues. I'm going to do the bumper, hood, rocker panel kit and possibly the rear bumper.
My concern is the decals. I hope to keep this car long term and I'm trying decide if I should allow them to cover the details.
I'm afraid 5 or 10 years down the road, the clear bra may need to be pulled off and I don't want to the original decals to come off with it.
