Extended reviewReview by Steve
It's been two weeks since I applied the product. I had to use two pieces to cover the top of the tank on my R1200R. I left extra over the front edge of the tank where the bag straps sit. The plastic wouldn't follow the sharp bend, but with the tank bag in place, it didn't matter. Bag off, different story. At 55the wind got under the front edge and started to peel it off. I one- handed it home and used black electricians tape to secure the edge. (Posted on 5/22/14)
Works wellReview by Steve
Good product, with some reservations. Works quite well on flat or simple curves, but tricky to fit on complex curves (like gas tanks).And don't try it on a fresh wax job. The water won't flow right for adhesion. And those tissue-paper pattern sheets? Throw them away with the packaging. (Posted on 5/3/14)
Waste of moneyReview by John
I can't believe I received the same product mentioned in the Customer Reviews. I cut the sheets to fit the tops of my hard saddlebags to prevent scratching from a waterproof duffle bag. After about a five hour trip through light rain one side had blown away and the other had wrinkled up. Maybe they work in dry no-wind conditions but I threw the rest of the sheets away.

Good stuff!Review by Locke
Great stuff for under your magnetic tank bag or to protect, say, the tank from constant rubbing by a radio cord or vest plug-in. (Posted on 6/21/13)
WonderfulReview by Richard
I got this product to protect my body panels from bungee cord marks for a trip I'm leaving on today. So far I am very pleased. It cut and installed easily, even going around curves and bends and sticking very well. I'll know in about 6 hours if it works well - that is when I will be done with my first leg of trip and see how well it stays in place. So far, very pleased. Good bargain too. (Posted on 8/23/12)
Love this stuffReview by Rob
Love this stuff. Use it to protect the finish on my Triumph T100 when I strap
on the tank bag for motocamping. Have not tried reusing it as replacing it every
year has been cheap insurance. (Posted on 4/4/12)
The BestReview by Roy
Works great and very easy to apply. Have used it for years--just ordered my third package. If dissatisfied with how it's positioned, it can be pulled-up and refitted without leaving any sticky residue on the bike, or wherever it's applied. (Posted on 1/2/12)
Great ProductReview by BamaX
Definitely works as advertised. Very easy application and stays put like it was glued on. You can't even tell it's there! Take care not to clean with anything abrasive or petroleum based (goo gone), as this will permamantly dull the plastic finish. Very highly recommend. (Posted on 10/25/11)
Snider's paint guardReview by Gnome
A little tricky to get the right fit on compound bends but doable. Place the guard so the majority of the film is flat. Pinch it on the compound curves so it stands up like a mohawk. Mark the base with a sharp point black marker. Do not remove the film. Trim carefully with a razor knife. If you're careful, when you remove the excess the seams will be close enough to press together without an overlap. If there is overlap, carefully trim with scissors or you razor knife then press on.

Just OKReview by James
I've used the custom cut kits of the 3M product before but couldn't find a suitable kit for my new bike so settled for this product instead. I'm not impressed. The 3M adhesive product is so much better. This stuff works on flat surfaces but that's about it. The 3M product also adheres to curved surfaces (with a little heat). This stuff is hopeless on curved surfaces. This wouldn't be bad for $14 but for the $21 I paid with shipping it's overpriced. (Really, $7 shipping for this??). (Posted on 9/25/11)
