By the way, come back m3heaven, I was only kidding....

Been on sale since April. One guy said he's interested, but he wanted to put a deposit while he thinks about it. I said no to that, since I'm not experienced/comfortable with that kind of situation. Just been waiting on a decision from him.

Here's the thread as an FYI. Lemme know if you're interested.

I'm your typical 9 to 5 worker. 3 hour trip up there due to LA traffic, no way I'd make it up there. Trust me when I say I'm super jealous of anyone that's able to make it though. I just got my car back from the dealership repaired and I'm itching to let it rip....

what do you guys think of this?







comes out to 150 shipped

i ended up ordering it, but they emailed me and said it's backordered and would take 25 working days... the 3 day express shipment.

i have an option to cancel it due to the unexpected delay.

should i cancel or get it?

I read some of the posts in that thread (not all, it started becoming forum whiney dramafest and I abandoned it), but the point about things getting underneath the bra and scratching the paint did make some sense. If you want your paint perfect, then cancel?

Then again, if what you want it to do is guard against big things, like Roma-mon's Boulder Smash Attack on my car at Streets of Willow (it's super effective!), then yeah, that should be good. If you don't run any paint protection on a regular basis and only for track day, then I would. You'll already have small scratches and stuff from bugs and stuff while daily driving anyways.

As an aside, I almost got one myself, but my parents' friend did my car's tint AND clearbra for $500, so I did that instead. The clearbra job isn't that good, but given the price, I can't complain. Guy isn't a clearbra guy anyways, he only did it as a personal favor.

well i would use it only to drive to willow, track, back home, then it's off

i wouldn't keep something that ugly on for a daily... since it would be on and off in the same day i dont see how much stuff could get trapped...

my friends bumper has a whole lot of chips from tracking and that's what i don't want

under the white is black... it's very noticeable ..

Yeah, why not then? Just make sure to keep it cleaned, like car covers and such.

Oh, and make sure your car is clean before you put it on. It'll just move the dirt underneath around if you're putting it on a messy car, I'd think.

Yeah you need to wipe a car down before putting on tape wrap whatever

I always clean the parts first. plus, when it's clean, the Road Wrap will stick to it lol

I think I'll cancel it and use road wrap

damn thing wouldnt be here until late anyways.

What are you using to do coding yourself? Is this something available on the market for a reasonable price now?
