If it gets a few stone chips during its life - get a touchup done - or just buy a new front end once every 5 years. Much better that suffering the embarrassing bra on your car.

This is the main thing that does worry me. But would it be similar to even Road Wrap? and even painters tape? (as the edges may get loose and dirt can get in)

The part about water/rain I did not know and I appreciate the info. Info like that is why I love this forum
