FWIW, I think both ozi and James use whats called Venture shield..... The 3M stuff was phased out a while ago I think.

I could be mistaken...

Hi Phil,

You are right there... 3M bought Venture Shield brand and the material... when they couldn't make a better product than the competitor, they simply just bought it out... so yes... Venture Shield is now a 3M product :)

cheers

Ozishield...

James from Invisible car bra is not too bad, but he only uses 3M products.

Matt from Ozishield knows how to install 3M and XPEL products and you might thing those 2 products are similar, but the XPEL technology is way ahead of 3M IMO.. I highly recommend the Ultimate film from XPEL.

I also sell an Italian brand of spray on removable clear coat that absorbs stone impacts and even minor fender benders (paint protection only).

Sells for $250 a litre (which should do your cars front or rear panel(s)...

Several people ask how much protection car bra will give.

Of course, it's a hard question, some people don't answer those.

In general use, it's really good of course, but in extreme cases, it DOES protect the paint, but that doesn't necessarily mean you get a car that doesn't look damaged.

Here's the lower front bumper area of a 430 challenge car, modified with a splitter which creates high pressure, and used on a race track where there a lots of rocks and bits of debris..... but it LOOKS damaged, despite not being.

Just so you know..... Sometimes, it's not much different in $$ terms, to simply repaint, as it is to replace car bra.

My general preference is simply to repaint, but it's a close call.

Is this any good?

That's silly! I don't want a blue car with black. I like the clear vinyl I have now. Pretty much invisible and it works.

Here it is. ... See it? No? Exactly!

In that 430 pic above, ignore the loose clear plastic sheet you can see at the top, that's just the clear car cover.

The dirty looking chip marks down low are just damage in the bra. If I peeled the bra off, it is still virtually perfect underneath.

yes, but if you only wanted to protect inside arches and lower panels/sills etc that were black anyway, it looks like it might be worth a try

Nice

Thanks.

I took the 355 on a drive near tamworth one year. Every other car was sandblasted right down to the undercoat, but not the 355 with the vinyl. That one drive.....it paid for itself.

I've done the same drive in the 308, plus others, and it is still totally unmarked. One of the best inventions ever.
