    I see lots of the guys building exotics and such using this stuff on the builds to protect the paintÖ think the PA stuff is ok? Haha

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    Blankets would be a pain in the ass. It's bulky, slippery, would fall off (unless you taped it) and get covered in dust/dirt, which would then scratch the car when you put it back, unless you washed the blanket every time it fell. They absorb oil/grease/whatever and make a mess. There's not a single reason that a blanket is better for this purpose

    There's a reason they use film on really really expensive cars, and not other blankets/covers/whatever is kicking around the garage.

    Well you answered your question, but my concern would be how staticy is it coming off the roll and would that attract dirt.

    Also.. your trim isn't even on the upper right side tailight.. that would drive my OCD nuts.

    The green is a bold choice with that colour scheme but I like it.

    Haha shiny black paint doesn’t mix well with 3D laser scanning, had to tape that to capture the data needed. Design the cowl in 3D had the pieces cut on a water jet. Did the same for the spoiler, and back seat panels I’m building, bit nerdy. And my triangulated 4 link rear suspension I built I guess. 3D scanning is great!
