3M Paint Defender | possible solution for florida love bug
3M has designed a product called 3M Paint Defender. A spray on clear film designed to last up to a year. Giving our situation in Florida with the seasonal love bugs… I don’t believe a full year is accomplish able? (Cars commuting at low miles may get that one year of protection) We have been testing this film, and so far… we are happy with what we’re seeing.
Do you have a track car…. Are you getting ready for a long road trip…. or just trying to save your paint through the love bug season????
This could answer all the above! We will be adding this as a service very soon!
The application process including “full prep” is around 16 hrs (2 days)
I will be adding another post in a few short days to come. We will add the durability and effectiveness, once we run this car through it’s complete testing.
Till then… Feel free to contact me with any questions. (Serious inquiries only)

Full prep covering all trim, lights, vents etc
In the last picture here we had removed a section after 15 hours of cure time.
This section was re applied…. cured… and currently on the road getting some abuse.
The cured film is pretty tough….. In my opinion its perfect for love bug season to protect your paint as well as many other benefits.
More to come on this….. A follow up post will be coming soon!
Any Questions…..? Feel free to contact me
Thorough Test Conclusion
This did not prove good for long-term use.
