    I've been thinking about getting a clear bra/InvisiMask - just for the front bumper. (getting tired of touching up chips and scratches - man, that paint is fragile!) It's pretty expensive to have it done but you can buy a kit - bumper only - for $144. My question is - how hard is it for a reasonably handy person to install and make it look right? Also, is it "less invisible" on a dark or light truck?

    subscribing. also interested. Currently I just use a bug sponge on the front end when washing. And keep it waxed with Liquid Glass. Best wax/polish I have ever used. I've actually tried every single wax/polish available.

    yea a few yrs ago in college, my room mates and I were all car guys and working at car places. So we all pitched in and bought a a few bottles of wax/polish. Liquid glass took 1st, Astroshield took 2nd, can't remember any others. Only ones we didn't try were the paste and new NEXT; wasn't out at the time. But I have tried recently Liquid glass vs the original Next and it lost... L.G. won. But since Mguiars came out with "next 2.0". Have not tried that.
