I like the kind for use with grills. It holds up to the heat of the road and car better. LOL

As for stone chips, I have 18,000 unwrapped miles on my car and maybe 2 or 3 chips.

People really know how to make something out of nothing.

And finally, to the dude with the bra, those are the WORST thing you could put on your car. The fabric scuffs the paint, if it rains, it traps water, debris gets stuck along the edge and scratches the paint, they flap and could mar the finish. Total waste of money.
Who pist in your Post Toasties?
Some guys are more meticulous than others, if they wanna keep the dings down then more power to em. I do agree with your bra comment tho.

what he said. I didn't click the link previously... the wrap is inexpensive but thin, should work on all but pebbles and larger.

FWIW, the roads here in Phoenix are lined on both sides by decorative gravel that gets thrown onto the road surface and kicked up by traffic. This, combined with the sandy desert along the open stretches here in AZ (and the southwest) work together to really do a number on the front of your car. My black LS started picking up rock chips the first day I had it. This sand will also get trapped under a bra and really do a number to the clearcoat.

So, for those of you out of towners who enjoy a relatively chip free car and would like to keep it that way during your stay in the desert, I would really recommend some sort of protection, whatever that may be.

Here is what my car is getting wrapped in to get it to the fest....

It's 2800 miles, and would take 4 days to drive one way, from my house.

So I guess the road wrap sounds like a good idea

I'm not sure if this question has already been answered?

Is ROAD WRAP available in Canada?

You first.
I use Pam on the inner rear wheel wells and lower rear quarter panels when I take Pumpkin to the track. Wash's right off and does not allow pesky rubber from sticking to stuff after a night of draf racing. Works mint.

Not sure, I just ordered 5 rolls from the States for the CDN Convoy. Google them. They will ship USPS if you ask, so you should be good to have it shipped to CDN.

I did use Road Wrap for the trip to Valdosta last year. Easy to use and rips right off when you get there. Use it for the rock chips more than the bugs. But it was nice to have an instantly clean bumper as soon as I ripped it off. I've driven around the West enough to know there's a lot more gravel on the roads out there than in the Midwest. Especially in the mountains where they dump grit on the roads instead of salt.

If you are going to use it, take lots of time to get it on cleanly and without too many wrinkles. The edges will start to peel in the wind, so the more you extend around the sides, the better. The more time you take putting it on the less it'll peel. It'll look stupid, but I'd do it again.

I had no chips on the way down, one on the way home cause I did it in a hurry and left one little spot uncovered. That spot had a chip. I also forgot the mirrors on the way home and got nailed by flying cardboard on I-95 in South Carolina. That rubbed out with some polish. Chips won't rub out.

Just ordered my RoadWrap after seeing how ugly my dads bumper looked today when he got back from his Arizona trip. Don't want my baby looking like that

I called Pam, and she said that there was NO WAY that she was gonna hang on to the front of my car for that many miles. She did say that she would wash it for me, but only if I fly her to AZ and back...

Looks like I will be washing it myself! ;-P

I ordered a roll, too - if it works out for C5F, I'll use it for the roadtrip to Oshawa in June.
