I spent much of the weekend polishing out those scratches for people. I think it does more damage then good.

I tired it and I damaged my car in the process of putting it on. Your better off hoping for the best and get some touch ups when you get home

Most that I saw in our group that wrapped, took it off because it had dirt underneath the wrap. Stuff no work. Use painters tape or vinyl as someone else suggested if you that worried about it.

Yup we had a wrap party at my house. Everyone that put it on took it off at out first stop or before we left the next morning. I left one spot on and it pitted my front bumper. STUFF IS CRAP!!!!

Took it off halfway there. it started coming off and flapping. Now need a buff. However since an Arizon gator jumped up and bit my car on the way to the Grand Canyon, I need a whole new front end. :-(

Never use it again. It looked like crap, flapped in the wind, and worse of all dirt that got behind it scratched my new paint. Thank god for the people at Adams! I rolled over to their booth and they took the scratches out. So I bought some of their products. Great group of people.

i started to put it on Wed night, but looked like crap and thought it may flap so I didn't use it. Then heard all the reports of Damage while in Cabazon and that did it. Never used it. Put some blue tape at the bottom for the ride home, but my front end is shot already anyway.

Why wouldn't you just have the 3M clear bra installed and be done with it?

I was gonna use it just for the bugs. When you take it off all the road debris and bugs come off with it. Clear bra it's still on there till you detail the car later.

I bought some. Put it on, showed Mrs. SSOOCH before we left. She said, "really? That looks horrible"!!! So I took it off. I did get a ton of chips though. I'm kind of wishing that I would have left it on.

I'm also glad I got that off for you. Those were some nasty gouges. Next time just use blue painters tape. Put two layer on the areas that you are worried about chipping.

First of all it barely sticks to a fresh wax and wouldn't stick to my stripes. So in that sense it was useless. Also it peeled off my gills and roof of my car in less than an hour. the only places that stayed were the mirrors and on top of the hips of my car. It also left a discusting sticky residue that had to be clayed out.

Bottom Line: I will NEVER use road wrap again and will HIGHLY DISCOURAGE ANYONE form using it.

I will NEVER use road wrap again. It flapped everywhere, it was loud as hell, and it came off the second I drove home after putting it on. I can't believe so many of us wasted our money on that crap.

Sucked....Ill never use it again either. Went on crappy and came off easy! We had a bit of rain and my Camaro bretheran could hear it floppin in the wind as I blew past them. More then that, it let a bunch of dirt get in and left rub marks on the paint.

BIG THANKS to Randy at the Adams booth for getting out the rub marks after he spent over 15 hrs buffing and olishing it!

Your welcome Kirk. I was freaked when I saw what that stuff did to your car after I spent all that time making it perfect just a week before.



Oh, and KIRK, stay away from the automatic car washes please.
