I went with the 3M. Incredibly difficult to install. To you guys that still insisted that your going to do it yourself all I can say is good luck ;-) Unless you are a professional clear bra installer I cannot imagine any person being able to install this stuff perfectly.

The site that I linked to in post 7 states that the Scotch Guard is very difficult to install and should be done by a pro. They then offer 2 other 3M products that they claim are DIY friendly.

Even so though, I wouldn't attempt a large horizontal surface like a bumper unless I has at least two competent helpers with me.

I've got some 12" Lemans strips to install on my Mustang when I have a free day and I'll get experience with large film applications then. I'll see how that goes before I tackle a clear bra.

I did my own install on the hood only. It wasn't too bad but it did need to stretch some. I have also done 6 or 7 kits before so I think I have the hang of it by now. It's also really hard to squeegee all the water out but it dried up in a few days anyway so don't worry too much about that.

Now I did try to do my own tint and that is a whole different skill. I couldn't get it right and gave up. But tint doesn't stretch at all so it isn't as forgiving, IMO.

Re: Invisible Mask for front of new jeep worth it?

I've been really happy with my 3M clear bra - did the front, the headlight wells, and the door edges. Professional installation is a must.

I called a couple local places for a professional job and they both quoted me exactly the same. $595 installed and they come to your house if you want. That includes front bumper, fenders, and hood, and mirrors. The one person said they dont recommend doing the mirrors if they are chrome as it changes the look of the chrome.

Re: Invisible Mask for front of new jeep worth it?

Damn.... I am getting quotes of around $500 for just the front bumper and lights, I haven't seen any with the mirrors as well. I have been looking at it and the only difficult piece seems like it might be the bumper. I can't see $500 being a good price for a few pieces of this. I like to do everything I can not only to save money but also I enjoy it.

For just the bumper and the lights this is the break down from the manufacturer websites:
Clear Bra is $170
Clear Mask is $155
Invisible Mask is $184

I could see spending $100 or so on labor, but I am not sure where these install prices are coming from!
