Where to buy transportation film for front bumper like when the car is delivered

I am looking to buy the film that you can put on the front of your car while transporting. I have seen it in blue and white. I see that gm uses it when they ship the cars out. I have no idea what to look for or where to buy. If you could point me in the right direction that would be great. I really want to use this when I go to car shows that are further away.

No clue where to get the stuff that GM uses in shipping.

http://www.buyroadwrap.com/

My friend used road wrap when he drove his show truck to SEMA last year, unfortunately somewhere along the way the film got loose on an edge and it beat the hell out of his fender the whole way there causing more damage to the paint than if he had just driven without it.

I guess if you can keep that kind of circumstance from happening you'll be fine.

I have used the 6 inch RoadWrap for a couple of years. It works great but doesn't look pretty when its on. At times some edges do come loose and can flap against the paint causing minor damage.
When applying it you need to guess how air will flow over the edges, it usually needs to be applied in strips starting at the upper most spot, then over lap it some as you do the lower areas, but each car will be different. You don't want the edges to catch air.

I carry a roll of blue painters tape with me to lock down any edges that come loose.

Last year I used it on two 860 mile trips and a 1,400 mile trip, including driving in the rain and it stayed in place...

Hey J sharp Chris at HPS uses it in his shop. He can prob get the guy he gets it from to ship you a roll.

very thick blue shrink wrap is pretty much what it is I dont think its cheap.
