Man I'm seriously considering something like this. I'm at 330k miles and the the car gets sand blasted every day on the way to work courtesy of Georgia's interstates all being gravel highways because of road construction

hotracer_05 I like your attitude! "Just bedline the whole car."

My sister and I both have serious UV paint damage on the roofs of our Yarises (thanks Florida and Arizona respectively). I was thinking of sanding and plasti-dipping the whole roof, maybe make it a Japanese flag to tease the people who put a Union Jack on their Mini Cooper.



One drawback of your solution may be a rougher exterior texture causing more aerodynamic drag at speed. Have you noticed any difference in your highway fuel economy?

That would be awesome! I havenít noticed any no, maybe the golf ball effect?
