    Default Clear film for bumper?

    I don't know what it's called, but you can get a clear plastic film put on your bumper and bonnet to stop stonechips.

    Anyone any idea what it's called, and if anyone over here does it?

    I don't really want another pebbledashed bumper like the one I've got on the Astra (going through the M2 roadworks at least twice a day means stonechip central).

    Well, got a quote through last night - £100 for the bumper, £120 for the bonnet.

    I'm wondering if £220 is a good price or not...or if it's really worth bothering? That'd buy the new stereo.

    it can be steep enough shop around abit or buy the sheet of ebay work out a deal with your local signmaker get them to pre cut the templates as you dont want to be putting a knife to your new car unless youve got a very steady hand that is

    Any suggestions as to who to use? I got the quote off "total perfection" - about the only place I could find in N.I. on the web that does it.
