The last warranty card I had for Ventureshield was a 5 year warranty on defects. It used to cover yellowing before, but not anymore.

Its expensive but VERY worth it! Guaranteed not to yellow for life! Look it up.
I have called around and they do not make the 60" rolls yet so how did you get the entire hood covered...I want to do the same thing but the largest roll they have is 48"...is that big enough for the full hood?

LOL, OK. Take it easy. They are making it in 48" widths now... so I guess it is wide enough. Just remember, there is Avery Denison film and also the Nano Fusion film...two seperate films. I also find it interesting that neither Avery Denison nor Pro-Form Designs (who solely uses Avery films) offer or even mention Nano Fusion in a width wide enough to do your hood. The pattern is 55" wide which means 48" film wont fit it. But what do I know, I only install the stuff for a living.

I spoke 2 master distributors of the Avery Nano Fusion product and both of them said as of right now their is no ETA and everyone and their mother is waiting for the 60"...sucks! It should have been out by now so could be any day. For now, I am getting the full kit with 1/4 hood/fenders and probably redo them later when the 60" is available.

I have never seen this stuff in person but from what I am hearing it should be better than everything out today especially for a white car. At $280 for a complete kit I am willing to gamble a bit.

I will post pics when it gets done (next tues).

Figured it's also worth mentioning Xpel which can cover the full hood and shouldn't yellow over time. Have it installed on my car, albeit it's JzB so I wouldn't notice yellowing anyways.
