Are you looking to protect you new vehicles finish from being eaten away (along with the resale value) by sand and road debris? Thinking that paint protection film, aka a clear bra is the way to go? You are on the right track! Wondering if clear bra / paint protection film really works? You know is it really going to protect the paint??? Yes. The following Honda Odyssey was protected about 2 years ago by Modern Armor. The owner chose the Level 2 protection package (in the case of the Odyssey: The leading ~22" of the hood, matching front fender pieces and even the side view mirrors were covered). Fast forward about 2 years and bam.
Something hit the fender and tore a gouge in the material. The fender took a sharp hit and we were not sure how the fender fared.
After peeling back the damaged 3M Clear Bra we found NO noticeable paint damage from the impact! Score a big one for paint protection film!
We removed the damaged section and replaced the section with a new piece of the paint protection film and the owner preserves all of the original factory paint! While installing paint protection film on your vehicle can't protect the finish from all that comes its way; it will go a long long way toward keeping the car looking great!
