There are proabably installers in your area that aren't listed on the 3M site. Many Chevrolet dealerships are qualified to install 3M clear protection. There is actually a TSB on the GMT 360 platform that calls for installation of 3M.I should get my entire car coated in this stuff. Too bad there are no installers nearby.
DOACanuck, the white line is usually from the wax accumulating there. The film is clear so there is barely a line there. One just have to be diligent to get the wax off there.Kevin A...
Thanks for the info...
Do you have any pictures of it? Just curious if the mysterious white line exists?
LOL - DOACanuck - LOL Thanks! Cute....DOACanuck, the white line is usually from the wax accumulating there. The film is clear so there is barely a line there. One just have to be diligent to get the wax off there.
Oh SNAP! Didn't even see that, god that's a beauty....I think you need to post some pics of that also!!!!Thanks. It has 102,000 miles and I'm amazed myself how great the car looks still. The Prowler behind it is a tough one to keep looking shiny with its black paint. The Nanowax by McGuires does a good job.
Hey, thanks for the info and insight...some great tips are here.I have used it on cars for years, here in colorado the dealer puts it on most new cars, you pay about $200 on the sticker price, I have done it my self in the past, I could get it from a local car and truck accessories place or even a window tint place for about $6 per lf, it was 18" wide, all you need to install it is some time, heat gun, solution (water & alcohol), but I think it is well worth it, the white line I can usually take care of with a detail brush, if you don’t want to buy one get a natural bristle paint brush and cut the bristles down to about 1/2 in, has worked well in the past, that will take care of the wax on the leading edge of the clear bra. It also works well around badges.
CarGirl - Thanks for the great info....My wife's car is in need of this, I think I may have to wax her car now, touch up some of the paint chips and see if he will do an install on her Pontiac Vibe for me.If you're in Cambridge, there is a company based locally that exclusively fabricates and installs the authentic 3M brand paint protection film. The website is www.NoChip.ca.
There are a lot of photos and a full catalogue/pricelist on the website. The gentleman that does the installation usually does it through the new car dealers, but will also do direct retail installations for any vehicle. He's very skilled; covers all the tri-cities area. I've had him do the protection on my last three vehicles and I absolutely think it's the way to go.
