I have to say I like the start! And you will like the extra protection from rock chips. I have to redo some rock chips on the front, as I put a thin coat on mine the first time.
Noticed your from Indy, Mo. I spend a lot of time in and north of KCMO.

Found some fine line plastic tape that stretches, its not cheap. I want to round out the sharp edges at the base of the scallops. Might paint some eyebrows on the top of windscreen. Just having fun with it and trying new things thanks to finding this thread.

i had a rusty lip on my hatch, i just stretched electrical tape to make it look rounded then sprayed some plasti-dip. U should experiment with a roll of it if ur looking for stretchy tape to do something like that
