This must be an item where markup varies greatly. I opted for the 3M clearbra offered through my saturn dealer and it's 399 installed. Maybe it's less expensive here because the dealer is less than 5 miles from 3M world headquarters. I think this is a must though as I can see potential for a lot of rock chips on the front end after a few miles on the highways.NCBlue said:I just got mine installed on Thursday(3/14) and it looks great! It goes straight across the front of th hood, and covers all of the front fender and they did the mirrors too. All for $499. PM me and I'll tell you the company(Triad, NC area) The guy that did it said not to wash/wax it until 2-3 days after, as it needs time to cure. Pics-

The FAQ section of the web sight said that it could be waxed with a non abrasive wax. They also recomended some ways to clean it .usmc said:Does the 3M stuff wax/buff out the same as the regular paint??
I was just thinking after waxing and buffing out the car would the non-coated areas be shinier than the areas with the 3M tape on them??
I've never used any product like this so just looking for the experienced voice.
I saw that, but I never really trust what the manufacturer has to say about their own product. I'm hoping for a post from someone who has used it in the past.nighttripper said:The FAQ section of the web sight said that it could be waxed with a non abrasive wax.

I have not seen 3M installed on transport aircraft due to the heat of the anti-ice system.Iceman49 said:I think the product has been used on the underside of some military aircraft going in to some of the fields in the sand box...helps with the gravel and rocks...also think it was used in Vietnam on helo blades. It has also been used on the vertical stab of commercial aircraft.
