I got my ZL1 front, mirrors, inner door handles, gills and an area buy my trunk done 4 months ago when I got the car. Also got my window tint done at the same time. 3M.......cost me 550 bucks. Well worth the money to save on chips. I had my wifes SS front end painted twice and then said no more. Got her a clear bra and no worries now. Just keep it waxed up and it will look good for a long time.

I think thats a smart idea about protecting the inner door handles , I'm thinking of filming that area as well.

I just paid $900 to get Avery Nanofusion applied to the front facia, the mirrors, and the gills. Had the same thing on my 2011 Vert and loved it.

This is on my list of things to do along with a tint. Good thing the house is now paid off and the kids are almost done with college! Time to have some fun.

I went with the X-Pel as well. A 10 warranty and it is self healing.

The clear bra installer told me (for my 2011 Vert) that the mirrors and the gill area are two locations very prone to paint chipping.

There was aloso one price for the front facia itself, and an additional price ($200) to cover the chin spoiler, but since the chin spoiler isn't actually painted, we chose not to cover it.
