I really suggest you go to a place in Toronto, and get it professionally done. THere was one place in T.O that I was going to go to, and get it done, but I forgot what it was called. I think I remember the price was like $150 for the front bumper and part of the hood.

there is a place here in brampton but **** i forgot the name. i drive by it every day to work. it's right on the corner of dixie and steeles beside the petro canada gas station on steeles.

wasabi told me about that place so he might still remember what the name of it is.

This is what 3M tape looks like but it wasn't done in Toronto.

You can see the line on the hood. The entire bumper is covered. If you look closely, you can see a line around the blinker.

I have not seen any stone chip damage on the tape so far.

It was done in the US by the previous owner. It was done in several stages so I'm not sure of the total cost.
