Diamond Shield

Does Winnebago have templates that Diamond shield is cut from and can you buy replacements from them? We had some dings repaired on the front so it was removed and the body shop doesn't know of a local person that installs it.

I talked to Diamond Shield and they are only a couple hours away and asked to send photos with the area taped off so I can get it done but premade would be perfect.

Thanks,
That was my next move. I wanted to get the numbers off the coach figuring they would ask but it was still at the body shop. Just wondered if any one had got precut replacement Diamond shield pieces. Didn't know about the email addy though.

Based on my own experience with 3M film, and discussion with others who have both 3m and Diamond Shield, I would forget about replacing it. I don't believe it is worth the cost.

...that may stir up some "discussion", but that's the conclusion I have come to over the past 7 years...

Diamond shield pre cut and installed Nano Fusion film on my 05 Journey. I am very happy with the work.

Paul,

I would consider not getting it replaced but it only needs two small pieces and even though it is somewhat invisible you can see the edges and we would like it to match the rest of the front.

Scott,

Is the Diamond shield you bought cut from an existing template or do they have to custom make each piece? I ask because if they are made up from a template I would have them sent to me and install it myself. Their web site has a video showing how to do it and it doesn't look to tough. I'm not sure I would do the whole thing but I only need the two replacements.

They cut it with a CAD cutting machine. They can ship to you to install yourself I think.
