3M protective coating for front of car?

I want to protect the front of my new daily driver from the abuse of rock chips and bugs. What is recommended for protecting the car, and where to go for installation?

The protective coatings are a great idea. They save your paint from ugly rock chips, and keep it looking like new. Only suggestion I give my customers, is to make sure you get the paint polished to perfection BEFORE you have the coating applied. Swirls and scratches can not be removed from the paint once the coating is applied. So once you have it on there, the paint will stay just the way it is under the coating forever(or until you have the coating removed).

(817)313-0948, forgot his name but i had the cts-v done there and got the stuff from him to do on the truck. he was on-site when the regency plant was still up and running doing all the installs for them. i was very happy with the job and he only uses 3M film. i think he is located over in the southlake/colleyville area now.

Who needs please when we've got guns?
