Not even a month into ownership of my 530i my buddy`s dad backed into my BRIGHT RED car with his santa fe when I parked in his driveway for a night...
The hood was replaced with a Carbon8 (NRG) fiber glass hood with a CF weave installed at Blackknight Customs in Oakville by Moe and then taken over to Jason and the guys at Armored Films up by HWY 7 and 427 who did an awesome job installing the 3M VentureShield series on the entire hood, making me realize that I made the right choice of doing a clearbra over a few extra shots of clear coat. The size of the e39 hood forced the guys to use more than 1 sheet of material but they lined them up perfectly and no bumps or inconsistencies can be seen unless you`re specifically looking for it. The glossiness of the material has held up perfectly for about 3 weeks now and makes the original gloss coat look like
I took a picture of a relief cut that was made where the emblem sits to show the difference in gloss with and without the film... See link below.
To Jason and the guys at Armored Films, thanks for the top quality work!
