    Temporary paint protection

    Hi guys,

    I may have found a car finally, but it's 9 hours away. If I go get it and drive it home, I might want to protect the protect the front end, A pillars, and leading edge of he roof from stone chips. Any suggestions? I've heard of guys using blue painters tape. There's also Xpel Tracwrap but have no idea where that's sold.

    Any normal automotive paint will survive a long trip, I would suggest you use common sense - drive on paved roads and not behind gravel trucks.

    I used Glad Press-n-seal once when going to the track with my newly painted fox, worked well.

    Blue painters tape always worked well for me, zero residue, easy to apply and remove.

    Agreed. It should, but I'd hate to buy a car with good paint only to have it chipped before I get a chance to enjoy it. Yes, common sense reduces the risk for sure.
