Rocker protection

Anyone here have any experience with Plastidip for small areas of the car that will get additional wear on the paint (rocker panels, front of hood, etc.)

Thanks.

^^^same here. However, I used Avery Dennison Nano Film. Both 3M and Avery are great products.

If I may ask, how much for the clear bra?

My total cost was $400 installed (front bumper and both rockers).

I went with 3M scotchgard per installer's recommendation.

I would recommend getting the rockers clearbra'd. Ensure that you instruct installer to wrap bra around he bottom of the rocker where it meets the wheel well, this is where a great deal of paint damage occurs.
