No more film on the front of my coach. And Bra's are even worse if you think that is the answer.

I had a thread going a few weeks ago about a vendor at the Spokane RV show that was peddling 3M clear bras of which he estimated about $1000 to have installed on our coach. There was a black fabric bra on our coach, but it was stolen. The grommets are still on the coach and the likelihood of matching them up with a new bra are unlikely. I was interested in putting another bra on the coach because it has a complete new paint job. BUT, after reading this thread, I'm giving up on the idea and if, in a few years, we start getting dings and chipped paint, I'll just have the front end re-painted. You sure do learn a lot here!!

As previously stated the 3 m product carries a 5 year warranty. They also recommend it be removed after 5 years. I had 3 m on my wife's Mazda MX5, steel and plastic covered. The film developed holes after 4 years. I took it to a installer in North Tampa, I had the original receipt, he called 3 m. They covered the cost of the new film but not the removal. I paid $150 for removal, and he installed what he claimed was a better product, not 3m. I had no paint removed in the process. I realize this was not fiberglass and may be easier to work with. I have also been told by the installer that put the original 3 m on that not to put it on a vehicle that has been repainted or on paint that has not been baked on. I don't know if they bake the paint onto motor homes like car manufacturers do. This may be the reason the paint comes off when removing the film.
If anyone wants the dealer/installers name in Tampa, send me a pm and I will look it up for you.
