I completed what I started last year by having my entire hood and fenders lined with clear protective bra. The bumpers are protected with Xpel clear bra and the hood and fenders are custom cut 3M venture shield. I will post pics asap since the guy who did it left the car seamless and even went as far as removing the side vents to leave the paint looking natural without the generic look that you get with precut film.
I haven't done a clear bra yet, mainly after hearing from others who had it done and later found out that the insallers trimmed the material while on the car, and later found fine cut lines in their paint once the bra was removed.
I wish I would have added more protection in front of the rear tires. This is where I'm having problems. I should have added from the seam down and went up to the door. Cadillac knew this would be a problem area as they added some film, but not enough. To late for me now as the damage is done. I have had no issues with the front fenders as of 15 months and 16K miles. Front film is holding up well.
