I’d appreciate any feedback on a protective plastic film that I can put on my fiberglass Explorer LV to protect against scratches in my deck to the side of and just in front of my cockpit. We have found that the higher end carbon Epic paddles can scratch the paint, and between normal use and my very erratic paddle handling in a roll attempt I have some scratches to buff out now.
I couldn’t find anything like this at the local auto supply store (Advance Auto), but I did find the following product at JC Whitney online. Does anyone know if there are problems with this product, or of another source for same? Clear would be preferable, but white would be OK if it was safer for the boat.
LC Whitney description:
"Gila Clear Paint-Protection Film.
- Protects any fully cured automotive surface
- Deflects stones and debris
Shields against pollutants and other environmental hazards. UV protected - won’t yellow over time. Simply clean painted finish, then apply the film. Flexible urethane (I think - printout was cut off) film can be stretched and molded to fit your vehicles curves and angles. Adhesives removes with product (even after years) and leaves no residue. No special care needed; wash and wax vehicle without damaging film… Not recommended for glass."
It comes in two widths, 4" or 8", both 6 ft long rolls.
Thanks for any help or advice. Celia
