    If anyone knows the part# or a link I would appreciate it. Searched but can't find. The Xpel kit just seems high $$$ and I have heard mixed reviews so I thought I would try out the 3M at a much more reasonable number.

    Any opinions by the way - FIRE AWAY!!

    Hope you don't intend to install it yourself.

    Why is that - I have basically done everything myself my whole life - I believe I will be Ok - thanks for the concern and the vote of confidence.

    Tough to install unless you are really good at it. Expensive if you are inexperienced and make a mistake.

    Some observations from watching the pros do my cars and trucks...
    • Clean, moist, and soapy is a must :D. Lifting to adjust can cause wrinkles and stretch marks :eek:.
    • Any dust, lint, or even if you fart near the car will cause a bubble.
    • Be Bewwy Carefuw if you try to trim on the car. Actually, you will score your paint...my guys don't do it.
    • Hope you are flexible in the lower body. The positions installers endure would challenge a Yoga master.
    • Need a good soapy water sprayer (and Kung Fu grip), good heat gun/dryer, and the patience of a saint. All I have is the Kung Fu grip :oops:
    I also do a lot of things myself but installing this stuff scares the crap out of me. Certified and experienced installers are worth it. Badly applied PP is a horrible thing to witness.

    I have watched being installed, tinted about 200 windows and I also bought the insurance for $25 bucks cause I am not crazy. Patience - got it. Also, you forgot to mention a good pair of latex gloves 'cause fingerprints never go away.

    Ahhhh...Grasshopper...very good!!!

    Kidding aside, I'd guess the 200 tints qualify as experience and the insurance I was not aware of!

    Ahhhh...latex...I did forget to mention the gloves! Sounds like you have the knowledge and have prepared to do it correctly. Good luck and hope the outcome is great. Will definitely save $$$ for other mods :cool:.

    Thanks - and I will update, in a masochistic way I am looking forward to it - ultimately (not that it doesn't matter) it is $250 bucks and time. I think we have all blown that amount it much stupider ways and I always want to try something at least once. If it does go well I just think I will like and appreciate that much more.

    I will do my Mopar hood pins myself also (that's next) and I am more anxious about that - drilling the hood and the cost to replace that - but what the freak :confused:

    Please post pic's - how much did you pay? My big question with the black "wire" connected to pin are they coated so they won't scratch header panel or clear bra once its on.

    Hey, 2510...for some reason I seem to recall you being in NJ. If so, Greg Gellas, owner of Signature Detailing, did my CQuartz Finest and Xpel Ultimate. I also had him CQuartz my wife's black SUV. He is outstanding!!!

    Just thought I'd pass it along. I've had over a dozen vehicles installed with Xpel or 3M by several different pros over the course of the years. He has been the best.
