Hi Phil - can't see it on your site.
We have just had a company come over from Linconshire to do this on a Ferrari while it was in the workshop. Quite fancy it on my repainted bonnet & maybe bumper. They do a kit for the Mini - have you got any plans for this service?

Hi Phil, I too would be very interested in a clear protector for the front - minis just seem to pick up so many small stonechips compared to other small cars.

it is a very specialised process and service but I do know that people pay a small fortune for it so it is something I am thinking about.

I would offer it as a kit form to cover:

Front Bumper sections
Bonnet leading edge
Wheel arch extensions

these seem to be the most effected areas.

Leave it with me whilst I get my thinking cap on
;)

I would prefer full bonnet as when I saw a ferrari done you could see a line were the leading edge finished so he got it removed & got the whole bonnet done :)

I know its very specialised - thats why I think it would be good for you as you are the master at applying stickers with no bubbles :)

Phil, it's gotta be a bugger to form around the headlamp curves and down the wings! :(

Come on Phil we discussed this opportunity last September when you looked at the protection on my RHD GP. Not like you to be slow on the uptake of a business opportunity:D:D

I think the product on mine is Invisishield
Bonnet lower section (should be higher up to be ideal), Headlights, side lights, complete front bumper including grill, wing mirrors and also top edge of rear bumper

thanks Alan:p

just considering my options to do our own and what material is needed as I can put a clear cast vinyl down but not sure how durable it would be - need some investigation to see what they use :cool:

just make sure you do a front aero bumper option as they are the worst for picking up chips - as you know from mine. :(

So sort it out and then I'll get it resprayed and covered - might have new stripes too as every other bugger in the world seems to have copied mine now :eek: Got a few ideas for something even more different or now you have a unit maybe go back to plan A? :p
