I really didn't want to leave the deflector off. The roads around me (Metro Detroit/ Wayne County) are HORRIBLE. There is rubble and even first size chunks of pavement that come from the pot holes deep enough to expose the rebar on my main road of travel(8 Mile) but anyways, the front of my car takes a beating from all the little bits of gravel kicked up by surrounding traffic and the deflector keep a lot of that off my hood. If I lived in OH or VW or NOT Detroit, I would take it off. So i dipped it to make it more matte black.

A clear bra is a better solution to the deflector. Nearly invisible and protects paint.
