The paint is dreadfully thin and fragile. In 3 months I have more chips in the bonnet paint than any other vehicle I have owned. I am rarely on the expressway and stay mostly on back roads. It is very disappointing.
Im with you on this, have had clear bra's in the past. When I removed one in a similar situation it actually removed a dollar size of paint with it.The clear bra is not problem free, a number of the members of our corvette club have them and there have been issues and it is rather expensive. They do help some in a lot of situations, however, if you get hit by a large stone they do not cover that under the warranty and the only way to repair it adequately is to have the entire treatment for that section of the car removed, then have the mar, ding, chip, dent, etc. repaired and then have the product reapplied. In the incident that I am referring to the cost to the owner was a little over $5,000 US. I really am considering just doing nothing and then at some point have the hood and front repaired as needed or just sell the car, take my licks and move on. That means buying another JCW! OK, as it will have the latest, greatest modifications and improvements and I now have enough first hand knowledge to know what I want when I order it!
