School me on 3M ClearBra, and what shops in town install it

Hey Guys,

I'm planning a road trip to Hudson's Hope in July. My buddy works at the W.A.C. Bennett dam and is going to give me a full access tour of the place.

It's a good 2400km drive round trip, and I was thinking it might be a good idea to do something to help protect my car's paint.

So I heard about the 3M Clear Bra, and I've been reading up a bit on it.

Does anyone have any experience with it?
What's your opinion on it?
Is it as easy to remove in the future as they say it is?
What's the typical cost for it?
Who in town installs it?

Thanks!

I've heard of something like that that is a a thick heavy duty clearcoat for front bumpers and rocker panels. Like a 2-3mm coating of polyurethanes that are clear or something.

I'm unsure if anyone in town does that.. if you find out let me know, I'd be interested for the front of my cars. Stupid rocks chipping away at them :O

I'm pretty sure SHC Autographx's still do this stuff. I had them put some on the front of my old Miata and it worked pretty well. Best advice if you have to drive gravel roads is slow down if you're meeting a car, it's your speed that does the damage.

im buying a new car soon and want this answered too...

i would recommend the downtown auto spa but they seem to have disappeared. from a quick google search i came up with these results... can anyone else recommend a shop that is either A+ top notch quality or one that is good and reasonable. thanks!
