I think I have venture shield which is actually a 3M product? I like it.

The key is the install...not so much the product. Find a good local installer and let them explain the product to you. They come with various warranties as well depending on the shop.

Do the full hood, fenders and front bumper and use someone who custom cuts it NOT uses the pre-cut kits. I had to have my car re-done I was so unhappy.

Clear bras

Definitely a must have if you do lots of hi-way driving... As noted, the installer is the key....

I highly recommend Sean@Ultimate Shield. Amazing work, honest/fair guy, and he's local to you. Prices vary by amount of coverage, I recommend the Xpel Ultimate film. A little under 2 grand for a full frontal wrap.

If stone chips bother you then do it for sure.

Dont do half the hood though do the entire hood.

Clear bra is good if you love the color of your car and do a lot of highway driving,
the installer is very key!

I really don't like when people do the half hoods, you could see the seems and it doesn't look good

Id rather do a wrap so i can change up the color every year, not as protective, but still protects your paint
