    nope...stone cold sober...work tomm..

    Vans these days are wrapped in vinyl to protect the paint against stone chips..it absorbs and disapates the stones impact energy and the adhesive holds the paint skin in place..

    Either that , or i have seen American cars with what they call 'Bra's' that cover the front end leaving only the headlights and grille visible..

    This is the stuff Gsi is talking about. I'm not sure about price i just looked into it a bit. Maybe i will do it after a bumper spray mine's full of chips at the moment.

    drive without the front bumper, that way you'll avoid stonechips altogether, and just sling in your boot for when you go to club meets!

    if it were me then i'd go for the adhesive film, alot of top of the range sports cars are being fitted with these and you'd never know they were there.

    These have been around for over 10 / 15 years now... I remember 2 Pimped up Civics that belonged to 2 regulars when i used to work the Door of Dukes nightclub in chelmsford..

    Ive just emailed about the Paint protection vinyl though, wouldnt mind some of that for my new car and the new VXR bumper, both companies that have links from 3m's website dont list a kit for the facelift veccy or signum, hopefully they will be able to make a kit or come and fit it for me as armourfend are also in Essex..
