However, because I installed the ACS extended front mud flaps and have the side rockers from the factory, along with the factory applied lower rear quarters PPF, I opted out of having PPF applied to the rear quarters... here's the 6k mile result..
I know some people don't like them but i put the Oreilly truck mud guards on my 17 ZO6 and at 5k i have only a couple of tiny chips in front of the rear tires, and those came from the 1500 miles or so that i put on it before getting the mud guards. I don't think they look bad or out of place on my car. However my Z is black so they may blend in more than on another color.

3/4 rockers on mine, ppf on front bumper, rocker panels, 3/4 side skirts, and partial hips.
I went with my detailers "new car protection prep" he has done hundreds of C7's and he said this will get the job done with a minimum of ppf....not that he doesn't like ppf, just in his experience this did prevent the vast majority of chips while still be cost conscious.

Dan, are there any test results or objective reports on the SunTek product compared to the 3M product?
Thanks.
