Recently removed peeling 3M protective film from the front cap of our Journey. Looking at alternatives to protect the new clear coat. Any suggestions appreciated. Leaning toward a vinyl mask similar to the "Le Bra" we run on our Camry (and her predecessors). Any experiences with vinyl masks or anything other protective system?

I decided not to replace the 3M with anything. Maybe the stuff has improved, but I would not want to go through removing another product like the 3M film. What chips I can't fix will be farmed out to the paint shop before we sell the coach.
I might decide differently if I lived in or transited areas with lots of gravel on the roads.

When we bought our '08 Adventurer, the protective film was cracked and looked awful. Rather than pay to have it removed ( I was not willing to undertake removing it myself ), I purchased a custom made bra and had it installed. The bra looks great and completely covers the film. By leaving the film on the coach, the bra will not remove any paint which can be a problem with a bra.
