Default Xpel Ultimate saved me

Was on a cruise with the local Corvette Club and someone decided to change lanes next to my 2016 Coupe.

His door hit my fender.

The result was that the Xpel took the hit and there was no body damage.

MacMulkin had the original installer remove the old Xpel and reinstall on the fender.

Could have been much worse if Xpel was not installed.

Sorry this happened - inattentive drivers are a PITA, but good thing the Xpel saved the paint and fender.

That sucks. Is the picture before or after the new Xpel install?

We all need blind spot monitors! Or mirror lessons. [just kidding--just kidding!!]


Nice save! Mine is in the shop having application today. [on a lesser note, I had a similar save when the garage door hit the front of our truck's hood--nasty scuff on the film, no paint damager!]
