elsolo It works pretty good against stone chips.
We used to install 3M on Cobra replicas, they are rock chip magnets.
It will eventually yellow a bit, it will be more noticeable on certain colors more than others.
It is a little tricky to install, until somebody with experience shows you the tricks. I imagine tint or vinyl wrap is similar in application techniques.

Invisible Mask uses 3M/Ventureshield (3M owns Ventureshield) so its extremely good material. That said the process of installing the clear film is not as easy as it looks. It's like installing window tint but on a different level because of the car's contour. You might want to take a look at a few videos and try a small area before attempting the larger ones. If you don't do it right you'll end up with bubbles underneath the film or worst-case scenario..tearing it.

Another option is to have a professional install it, sites like http://www.xpel.com/ will have listings of people that do this for a living.
Thank you guys for sharing the info, much appreciated :)

I installed it myself, it was not too hard. Basically you spray soapy water over everything, the vehicle, the back of the material and your hands. This allows you to position the material and then you squeegee all the water from beneath and the adhesive sticks it down. Doing the bumper on our cars will probably be a handful. Better have two people and make sure everything it clean. If you get any contaminants on the back side the film it is ruined.

I have ordered film for my headlamps for some extra UV protection. http://www.etrailer.com/Lamp-Guards/...eid=2012992498 With the way the tops are exposed to the sun I think they will start to turn. If you buy a kit (I think that may be the same place I got mine) it may include headlamp film as well.

sleepyboy No problem. Wish I had some experience to tell you about the invisible mask. I do know of some that have put it on. Looks alright, can't tell it's there till you get right up on the car. Other than that I can't tell you much.

sleepyboy Welcome to the forum.


I moved your thread to the General Car chat area. The technical chat area section is for technical discussions relating to general maintenance, electrical issues, engine trouble, and recalls.

Invisible Mask

I bought my new Focus Titanium and I was wondering if anyone has any experience with Invisible Mask products (www.invisiblemask.com) in terms of quality, easiness of the installation and price.

You feedback is greatly appreciated.
