Question Protection on front of the hood .........

What do you think about the product ( like a Scotch Gard tape ) protect the front of the hood ....... Better than regular splash gard made of plastic?

Thanks !

That looks pretty good. Well more specifically, it doesn't look like anything and therefore looks good. I wonder if it would be just as undetectable on a black vehicle....

the only problem is if you wax your truck the seam will start to show as wax buildup so don't wax but use a hand glaze and i have seen it on a black range rover and you cant tell its there till you get close to it

i work with that stuff all the time at my work but i dont instal it and its called expel and its pretty sweet just make sure you stay the hell away from it with a pressure washer cuz it will bubble real quick its pretty much jusy a clear thin rubber bra decal thing that covers the hood fenders and sometime the bumper and mirors. i would get it done real fast if i was you cuz it will save your hood from chips and scratches.

I suppose the only thing that would really give it away is if there were bubbles.

My friend has it on his Black BMW. & for 2 years I never new it was there.
He had his car detailed a few weeks ago & the where the wax stuck arround the edges slighly is what gave it away.

you really cant see the bubbles either and if it sits in the sun long enough they tend to disperse and dissapear and i wouldnt do it yourself cuz all the one at my work are done by pros that do that kind of stuff and it would look better
