In Reply to: Yet another X-pel testimonial request posted by MV on October 24, 2000 at 12:01:19:

Specifically, how does the X-pel look after it absorbs som rock strikes? Is the surface hard enough that it doesn't pit and gouge while perfroming its duty? I have seen pictures showing how nearly invisible it is when new. Does it remain as invisible over time, or does the plastic easily scratch and scar?

Our Topaz 2.3 is closing in on 15k miles and it has collected its fair share of dits and chips on the bumper and hood. I'll be taking it in at the end of November for a rear bumper replacement thanks to getting rear-ended last month. The body shop guy said that once he had the paint color matched, he could touch-up and airbrush the chips for basically nothing (less than $100). He has previously replaced my front bumper after a service department parking snafu and did an amazing job, so I'm pretty comfortable letting him have a go at the hood.

Assuming that the end result is acceptable, I'm thinking of doing what I have should have done last August and getting the car X-Pelled.

Thanks in advance for the input. Any recommendations for X-Pel installers in the SF/East Bay area are greatly appreciated.
