Hail Protector!

Seems plausible.

Hmmm, if they issue an hail alert I will seek shelter at a underground garage.
30-60 min should be more than enough time for me to make it

I bet it would eat up the sides of your car with the wind. Notice how the bottom edges move around quite a bit in the video.

It's polishing out some swirl marks or hail damage... easy choice IMO.

Until a piece of hail the size of a soccer ball falls onto it, dents your car, then rips a hole in the guard, then the wind makes it tear even more, and the other hail falls in. My solution: Garage

I am from FL and it doesnt hail much there.Unless you have a new (about a week) Bronco. I grabbed the quilt off my bed and covered the car. NO damage.

Unhappy Call Her "Dimples"

I have seen worse

Question is would a "Hail Blanket" have saved her from the carnage?

Pretty sure I'd vomit if this happened to my car... I assume you had this fixed, how'd it come out?
