What's wrong with it? I just saw this stuff and was thinking about buying some, but the 1 year thing makes me wonder about it. What happens after a year?

Doesn't look good

I'm super hesitant to do anything with paint work because of how difficult it is to match even in the best conditions. I can't imagine using a rattle can in the open air there would be so much crap in it and the result would likely be orange peely.

Just find a clear bra installer. You can have the hood, fenders and headlamps done for about $200-$300. Full front end for about $600.

I used the entire can on the front 8" of the hood, so pretty good layer and i took a rock to the hood and it split the film and chipped the paint too.
So I decided to remove it entirely and Im still having trouble. It doesnt peel up like plastidip. This is not something I expected from 3M. So now i have to use GooGone or WD40 to see if it will help get it off

Armorall has a spray on shield .now that looks allot like the plastidip, and it comes in clear, $12 bucks a can at Walmart.. After reading reviews about the 3M stuff I'm glad i returned it, and saved the pain of getting it off...
