View Full Version : Paintwork Protection

I've found some details re Permagard. Apparently new to the UK - was featured in Revs recently. Advanced polymer shell that is applied to vehicle. Forms a barrier on the paintwork against all the usual environmental hazards. Difference is is that its guranteed for 2 years (in France, where it comes from, its for 5 years!) Washing becomes a matter of rinse off dirt, and that's it. No more waxing for the foreseable future!

As ever, these things come at a price - introductory offer of exterior and all interior - 250. might be worth it for the very fastidious of you out there.

re Permaguard, beleive it was used on `greys` at STI imports in Bristol.see links. My car has a protective film applied to all the areas affected by stone chips e.g bumper,lights, bonnet, mirrors, sills,arches etc. Not cheap but does stop the stone chips. you only notice a line where the film stops.9000 miles and only one stonechip! company is called Armourfend and is fitted by their fitters. You do need something as the paint is wafer thin.
