This clear film is a nearly invisible, "always-on" alternative to bulky vinyl front-end protectors. You have to be close to the vehicle, and look hard, to spot this film. This flim offers protection from stone chips, insects, small scratches, and the wear-and-tear sand-blasting effect from years of driving. The film is semi-permanently installed, similarly to window tint. Requires no special maintenance and you can wax it along with the rest of your car.
