I would like to know pros and cons of this? I am considering for hood area.
It would only be ugly if you had cheap film and/or a bad installer. Properly installed film should be invisible. Of course, some colors are easier than others. On my Rosso Mondiale Coupe, you can't tell there is film on at all unless you know what to look for.Pros: its ugly
Cons: its ugly
Do it, and dont wait another minute! I waited ONE day, and got a nice chip on the kisser of my new GT-SI would like to know pros and cons of this? I am considering for hood area.
Mine covers the first 25% or so from the front of the car up, barely noticeable. It was put on new in '04 and, other then where it's made the neccessary sacrifices, it's still nearly flawless. Get behind one semi throwing up micro debris from the road and you can hear the value of the investment. Definitely get it.I would like to know pros and cons of this? I am considering for hood area.
In addition to everything from the windshield forward, I would also suggest covering the mirros and paint at the training edge of wheel wells.Thanks everyone for sharing your experience. I have a black GS spyder, If the paint is properly prepped prior to install are swirl marks, etc. minimized/eliminated on areas covered by the film?
In addition to the facias, rockers, and wheel lips I am considering doing the entire hood (as mentioned in this thread). I think it would drive me nuts if swirl marks developed and I couldn't do anything about it. Also wondering if you know how to extend the life of the film? What does the most damage, heat, cold, elements or just time. I live in MI and it is just a weekend toy, covered and garaged when not in use.
