If you are going to do clear bra the only one I would recommend is 3M.

Having said that, you MUST lean bugs off asap as the blood and guts acid will etch into the plastic.

Good reason to keep the car clean. It keeps me on my toes!

I know you havea 3M clear bra and are partial to it but there is much better film out there than 3M. I install film for a living and do not have any brand loyalty... I simply install the best film because I want to have the best looking product on all of my clients cars. ClearMask AR and VentureShield Ultra are much better films. Both films have no orange peel, are much cleaner (clear) than 3M, and both have a lifetime warranty as opposed to 3M' 5 year warranty. I m not trying to talk down your product I just think that for you to openly recommend a film over any other that you should atleast have seen or even heard of what other films are out there. If you would like to see 3M side by side with ClearMask AR then send me your email and I will get some photos to you. I think you will change your mind pretty quickly.

I also use an acrylic polish/sealant that is made for aircraft windscreens on my film. You can leave lovebugs on there for days and it will not absorb into the material. In fact we took a big piece of film, applied it to an old hood, used different waxes and Zaino along with my sealant on differernent areas of the hood, and then poored motor oil on it. We let it sit out 2 weeks in the Texas sun/heat and the oil soaked into the film everywhere except where I had he sealant. The oil was still beaded up there and rolled right off.
