Clear Plastic Proctector

I know that I seen it on the Forums and i can't find it. I'm looking for a clear plastic sheeting that goes on the paint. It protects against rocks and bugs. The frond of my trailer is getting beat up from the LT kicking up rocks and bugs hitting the front of the trailer. Thanks....... Chuck

I have a product called Digi-Cut on my LT. It was installed by a place in Tulsa, OK.

The stuff is good - it was a bit expensive, but I am glad I had it done...

Here is a related thread -- http://www.bmwlt.com/forums/showthre...light=digi-cut

May help a little....

Make a mud flap out of two layers of old inner tube. 1" wide strips offset, one layer from the other by half, will catch 95% of oil dirt and debree and redirect it to the ground. Same as a skirt on a motorhome, but free

Clear film

Chuck - send me an email with how much you need and I'll see if I can get you some. I sell the 3M film from XPEL. Look them up on line, get the info to send and I can save you a few bucks.

I own a 2006 LT that is Storm Gray in color. An expensive bike needs good paint protection so I took it to Accutint in Bellevue Washington where they installed the 3m protectant on the bike. They put on 33 seperate piectes covering the fairing, front fender and lower cowling and bags. Probably more than one might want,;however, it has more than paid for itself. They have done several LT's.

Given the curves on the bike and difficult angles, I suggest a professional install. Here is the link and I suggest you call and talk to Tim at the Bellevue store who knows the bike and materials. My buddy bought a 2006 charcoal LT and they did a great install job.

Keep in mind that one nasty rock repair on the fairing can more than pay for the entire cost of a 3M coat.

Scout 70's paint protection.

I saw his bike with the paint protection on and it looks top notch. Great stuff to put on the bike and car.

I also put the headlite protection on my bike and both cars. Will protect them from chips and rock damage.

So, Tim, do you need a sq. foot request? I think I'd like some on the lower fairing for sure...

Thanks!

Protector

Channing - I can get pre-cut film kits made by 3M for the body and headlights; car/truck/motorcycles, and save you money. However if you are just needing some squares or pieces (considered bulk), you can check out xpel.com. That's where I buy my product.

Unfortunately I don't have bulk products.
