I picked up my car on Tuesday and had Ventureshield installed on Sunday (less than 200 miles on the odometer prior to install). All I can say is WOW!!!! I had the front grill, headlights, fog lights and side mirrors done. This stuff is amazing. The front grill piece is invisible from less than 6". I have to point out where the seam is to people. Same goes for the headlights. The side mirrors are a bit more noticeable (since it's a jigsaw puzzle of 4 pieces for each mirror). Even with that if you are more than an arms length from the car you can not see it.

Todd from ClearbraNJ was my local installer and he is top notch! He spent 10 minutes removing a piece of lint from the film, that I could not even see! There is something to be said about taking pride in your work these days. The whole ordeal took about 3 hours and I couldn't be happier with the results. Great product and great service.

Hey,

Morfious, that looks fantastic. Did you put anything on the hood?

Everything together was $300. Just had to make the drive to his shop.

Actually it's 11:13 as I'm typing this. No I did not do the hood. I was not sure if I wanted a more noticeable line 1/2 way up the hood. I was mostly concerned with the protection of me bumping into things while getting to know exactly where the front of the car is, well that and kicked up rocks. The pattern for the Solstice only covers the hood up to the top of the headlights. There are also parts for the side running boards and behind the front wheels. I did not get these installed either.

DAMN! The kits alone are more than that on the website (I got both GXP kits) ... you got a NICE deal! :cool: I paid $250 labor for mine (average price) and it was worth every penny. :cool: ~$600 for mine (Kits and installation)

oops, momentary brain malfunction. Pacific coast is two hours difference, not Atlantic coast. :blush: :blush: :blush:

I often advise people, when you pull in or back in to park, stop about TWO FEET before you think you need to. That leaves plenty of room so no scraping. Also keeps you far enough to the outside so people don't think that's an empty space and jump to get in the spot before the other guy. That could get messy if the Solstice is parked deeply in the space and not visible until too late.

I just got the ventureshield put on my red GXP. I got it put on the hood, front fascia, lights, foglamps, behind the front wheels, behind and in front of the rear wheels, and on the sill plates. Cost was around $700. Great stuff and very hard to see.

This forum has been great for finding out about these things.

thx!

I also had the ventureshield put on. Great investment and you got a super price KW. Mine was around $800 but I got the extended version that goes 23" up on the hood along with front fascia, lights, foglamps, and sideview mirrors.
Folks if you own a Sol/Sky this is $ well spent. To find a local dealer just do a search on Ventureshield and you will get their website and you can find an authorized dealer/installer in your state.

I've had the Ventureshield for about a month now and I can tell you I am very pleased with it and with a lifetime warranty you can't go wrong. Post some picts on here when completed also would like to see how the window tint comes out that will be my next mod.
