Rock Guard - Invisible Automotive Paint Protection

Anyone have any comments on this product. http://www.rock-guard.com.

If this really works, I'm all over it, maybe get the entire car done, or at least all lower panels, bumpers, lights, ect.

I bet that would be expensive, but worth it.

Any ideas of prices? Over $1000? under? more than 1K?, I have no clue, and would hate to be clueless when calling.

Just got three quotes back today. I'm going with this one.

I am looking at the Hood, Fender, Mirror and Bumper kits you see on XPEL's website for $489 installed.

The headlights I can do for $75. I believe there some small fog lights to go along with that.

Door Edge guards I can do for $35.

For $100 I can do some small pieces behind the front wheels where the sideskirt is and some small pieces behind the rear wheel. This is about as far as I would go with putting the film on the car. I think you would have great coverage with the above.

These kits will only fit the car if the Action Package is the same as the 2002-2003 Action Bumper. From the pictures you sent, it looks like it will fit.

I may ask for the car to be left overnight to spend some time on the install eek. It will be in the garage the entire time.

So we are looking at eek $699, eek but a 10 year guarantee follows that for no paint chips or scratches where this is applied. It's a done deal.

No keys for them, lol rofl

The biggest problem with the 7th gen is the front bumper valence, and the bumper (below the actual Hood). The fog lights do take a beating, but are alright and the headlights are alright. The back bumper area below and by the wheel also takes a huge amount of damage. The Mirrors are not a problem or anything by the front wheels. For these areas the max should be $200. The Hood add a hundred for the whole scoop assembly and $35 for the fogs max. Just my thought on it. I'm sure I could coat my whole Celica in clear vinyl for $300 if I wnated to and maybe I should go into my own business.
