    Default Stick-on paint protection film

    Anyone with any experience of the stick-on ( and supposedly peel-off) paint protection film sold at car accessory shops?
    Does it really protect against stone chips / scratches? Does it peel-off when you wash the car? Does it mark the paintwork in any way? Does it curve much / at all if trying to cover a surface that isn't close-to-flat? Does it work as well on plastic (bumpers) as it does on metal surfaces?
    Any experienced advice welcome.

    Have used Litz Skinz on my lights for years , never had a broken light yet.
    The thinner stuff called Body Skinz is thinner and will protect your paint from chips.

    Can be moulded to shape with a bit of heat such as hot air gun or tropicial sunshine .
    Will tend to go a bit yellow after many years but remains almost impossible to see from more then 4 m.

    Can be removed with a fair amount of heat and a little bit of time.

    I may have to bring it, Kimmo, as I noticed last night that a front tyre on the GS appears to be going flat (grrr), and I have a 4pm appointment on Wickham Tce to fit in between work and CCCQ.

    ive fitted a few factory bonnet clear skinz to ferarris n lambos (they have flat bonnets), found that getting the panel wet, sliding the sheet on and then painstakingly stuffing round until it was square (is like fitting window tint). the other stuff u speak of may require a blow dryer or limited use of a heat gun to stretch around corners, my advice based on previous experience is to use smaller pieces that will fit onto flat surfaces rather than try to mould it into and around convex or concave surfaces. Another idea is to get the front of the car bodywrapped in a body matching colour.
