Haha, you think I've been driving for 7 months and not had a bug hit it? PD is very durable. I apply it on people's car like a 3M venture shield to protect against rock chips and bug gut etching. Most people use a power washer to clean their dipped cars. Trust me, a bug spat will do nothing. In fact I've had a bird suicide on the front of my car while driving 60 and it left quite the bloody mess but the dip is fine.

You are right about having a little bit extra for backup though. Most people will have to repair some kind of spot or scratch at some point. From my experience my inner fender wells take the most abuse from having all kinds of road grime and other road debris thrown up at it. The door cups and handles also get abused especially if you have a GF with long fingernails. Nothing a little TLC cant fix.

Wrapping has a better durability. If someone accidently presses their finger nail too hard on the dip, It'll probably mark it.

Just had my car wrapped. Was thinking PD, but after checking out PD cars, I did not like the finish or the tackiness (feel).



Loving the durability and ease of maintenance.

I don't know where some of you are getting your pricing from, I ordered 3M satin white for the whole car (minus black roof) for $350 applied myself. Yes it was $350 to do the whole car.

Thanks!

And as the poster with the beautiful white wrap above states, the raw materials are relatively inexpensive. And props to him for doing the application. Applying vinyl is more time consuming and takes more skill than spraying on plastic, but the end result is night and day different.

You can go quick and cheap, or you can invest and get a beautiful and durable finish.
