Clear Plastic Wrap?

OK Guyz, having gotten my bike back repainted after my recent Yosemite misadventure with the pavement in a parking lot, I'm looking for advice and link pointers to some sort of clear plastic covering. I have in mind a clear plastic sheeting which I can apply myself to the vulnerable parts of my tupperware, especially the side case lids, main fairing panels, and the front piece which surrounds the headlight....

Hello
3M makes a film just for this, here's one link for it. Do a search for 3M chip guard and you'll come up with tons of pages. http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3...otection/Film/

Thanks men. I left a message for a small company in Garden Grove to call me. Reading all the 3M websites, it appears that the Scotchguard stuff is better left to installation by professionals. I wanted to do it myself, but I'm going to get a price quote before I go any further.

Try a company I used on my Triumph right across the street from Irv Seaver, Permier Protective Films, did a great job at a reasonable price. Their phone number is:

Chuck.. I've been using the Tankslapper.biz stuff for years..It's the FIRST thing I do to every bike I own... Really pays off in the long run especially when you're getting ready to sell a bike. Chimp easy to install.. they make 2 versions.. the 3M peel-n-stick stuff and their own material which goes on with water.. if you get it wrong just pull it off and reapply.. I swear by those guys... My 2 doubloons.

Snider's Paint Guard from Aerostich works great... its also removable. you can take it off and putt it back on again. Goes on with water. Peels right off. had mine in place a few years no yellowing.

Thanks to all for the the advice and suggestions. I have a lot of leads, and now I need to do the research and see which is going to work the best for me. That's what I love about this board! I can throw up a post with a question and within a day people from all over the world offer their real world experience. It just doesn't get any better than that.

When you're done with the research, would you mind sharing with the class?
