: 3M hood paint protection

I had the 3M paint protection put on my Element. It's a invisible no maintence transparent 'film-tape' covering most of the hood, painted fenders and door edges. Rather than a do-it-yourselfer, I had it applied by 3M recommended intstaller..
I didn't use the 'kit' for the element, as it didn't cover as well, and cost $500. I had them use a non precut 'roll' width-comes up to the windsheid washer jets. Cost $300.
I am most happy with it.
I also learned that these 'films' benefit from non abrasive waxes wo cleaners.
