Question on XPEL Bras

I recently had XPEL applied to the headlamps, hood, fender, mirrors (glass part), bumper and impact areas ... and am quite satisfied with the results.

Has anybody done this to the front windshield of their 2014 JGC? If so, what is your opinion of XPEL in that area? Seems to me that the windshield wipers would scratch it up pretty good unless the surface was obviously wet ... then there is the possibility of a tiny piece of rock lodging beneath the wiper blade.

Thoughts anyone?

Thanks

BH

Hmmm I would think that it would get scratched up pretty easily. Could always try it and then just remove it if that is the case.

Re: Question on XPEL Bras

I know the stuff is optically clear enough as far as being applied over a painted surface goes. But what would it be like looking through it on glass?

Re: Question on XPEL Bras

And...would it interfere with rain sensing wipers?
