    I saw this product in Hemmings this month and out looks like a good solution for people that want to add an extra layer of protection on the track or even on long road trips.

    Interesting stuff. I may have to try it for my track days.

    Guys I know that used it really liked it and Tyme keeps his car immaculate, so I would bet he will be a new customer?

    You're doing an admirable imitation of Grant there, Bill.

    lol. But that's nothing compared to being 'probably the best driver' that somebody knows! I hope you had a good laugh at that. I certainly did.

    Thanks for the link, my wife just ordered some to cover my new CF Tiger hood!
    Will cover ( wrap or expel ) it in the future, but this is a great , fairly inexpensive way to protect it in the meantime. Glad it was posted here on TMO , as this Senior Citizen mind could not remember the name of the product even though I know a few racers who have tried it.

    I wish I would have know about this stuff earlier! It could have saved me from some of the nasty chips in my hood.

    Want to pull the trigger. Concerned about using it over stripes.
    Anyone know if this is safe around graphics?

    Hell, it's only money. And to think I went two weeks without buying anything Mustang related. You guys are a bad influence on me!;)

    Gotcha- Ive been contemplating if I want to do the entire hood but so far my clear bra had done me right.

    How far up is your clear bra? The other important spot that 90% of Mustang owners miss is the 6-8 inches above the windshield. There is over a quarter of an inch of roofline folded down to the windshield on the GT 350s and S550s, and that edge and the leading edge of the roof catches alot of track debris ( rocks and rubber)! Will be doing xpel or clear bra there also on my Boss .
