I recently purchased a 48" wide roll of 120' of the 3M paint protecton film that is used in the clear bras. I decided that I would apply the film myself and save extra money by purchasing a entire roll and sell the extra. I choose the 48" roll so that most of the hood, if not all (my Solstice will arrive soon, so I haven't measured it yet), would be covered without any seems.

Finding 24" bulk film for under $11/ft is very hard to find. I am selling the 48" film for $18/ft. If you were to cut it in half it would be like buying the film at $9/ft.

You can go to 3M's site to learne about the film.

And Motor Trend did an article on it.

WOW! Where the hell did you find 480 sq ft of that stuff? Crazy!

I would like to get just 1 sq ft from you just to sample it. I may like to buy more when I finally get my car, but for now, I just need some ample scratch protection for my poor iPod! I've had it for two weeks and I've been very gentle with it and it's taken a beating anyway!

SolsticeDesire,

I would be very interested in getting your feedback when you apply the film. Have you done this before? Your one brave guy!;) I had it done professionally. They installed the 24" version since the computer is not designed to cut the 48" roll for the Solstice.

Good luck...
