Clear front protection. Grille mostly

I see a few of the 3m front protection kits on ebay but cant seem to find one for the grille surround itself. Anyone have some insight where to find one? I had my chrome one painted, and I sure dont want some lovebugs or rocks messing it up. Thanks

That's perfect. Thanks for the link. I wonder what the difference is between the 3m, Avery, and Ventureshield is. They charge more for the latter two, so I'm wondering if they are somehow better

I'm guessing they are thicker or higher costs of production.

The ClearDefender video sure makes it look easy to apply.

I had Ventureshield installed yesterday and it looks great you cant even see the line. I have a Black King Ranch and they did the full front end and the rocker panels . The installer said the 3m quality had dropped off a little and that was why he switched to ventureshield.

I put it on today. I took the grille off so that I could do it on my porch. Gotta say, its pretty tough. Patience is key with this since it's just a huge sticker. I just finished up the hood/fender/mirror kit as well. Not the best install, but at least it looks fine from 20ft. That's all I can ask since its just there to protect from love bugs/rocks. If youre not patient, get an installer to do it.

Premier Protective Films International (aka Premier Mobile) clear bra, paint protection film, tint, auto tint, safety film, chip paint, kits, custom, car

This is the BEST clear bra company in the US period. I have had 4 cars done by them, and plan on doing more. I don't know if they can make you a kit and ship it to you or not, as I usually have them install it at their shop, but you can ask. At the very least, they can answer any questions you have.

Every time I go, they have 997 TT's, Ferraris, Mercedes Black edition cars, ect. Good stuff!

I will probably have them do my front grill also.
